Ruthy's song for William Puck.



Baby, baby, you make me dizzy and hot.
you make me weepy alot.
Baby, baby, when I hold you near,
I've never seen so clear.

All the wonder of a warm spring day is in your tender smile
We're so lucky that your old soul chose to stay with us a while

Baby, baby, you've been in my heart
for a long long time.
Baby, baby, now I see your eyes
and they look like mine.

When I see you growing big and strong I overflow with love.
And whatever troubles come our way, I know we'll rise above.

Baby, baby, the future's coming fast
every day flies past.
Baby, baby, I'd like to slow things down
now that you're around.
I'd like to slow things down
now that you're around
