ALL ON ACCOUNT OF THE BABY.

A.n ache in the back and an ache in the arms, ’All on account of the baby ; LA fear and a fright and a thousand alarms, [All on account of the baby [And bottles and rattles and whistles and rings, From cellar to attic a , cluster of things. From morning to night, and to morning again, More fuss and more fume than an army of men, [And a head that is stupid for lack of its sleep, LAnd a heart where a flood of anxieties leap All on account of the baby. LA joy in the heart and a light in the eyes, ’All on account of the baby ; A growing content and a growing surprise 'All on account of the baby ; LAnd patience that wears down a myriad frets, And sunshiny song, that another be- 1 gets , And a pureness of soul as a baby is piu - e, And a sureness of faith as the children are sure ; And a glory of love between husband and wife, And’a fuller and happier outlook of life — All on account of the baby.
