Eddy Arnold - You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby Lyrics




You must have been a beautiful baby, you must have been a wonderful child
When you were only startin' to go to kindergarten I bet you drove the little boys wild
An' when it came to winning blue ribbons, you must have shown the other kids how
I can see the judge's eyes as they handed you the prize I bet you made the cutest bow
Oh! You must have been a beautiful baby, 'cause baby look at you now

Does your dad appreciate that you are merely great?
Does your mother realize you're such a treat for the eyes?

You must have been a beautiful baby, you must have been a wonderful child
When you were only startin' to go to kindergarten I bet you drove the little boys wild
An' when it came to winning blue ribbons, you must have shown the other kids how
I can see the judge's eyes as they handed you the prize I bet you made the cutest bow
Oh! You must have been a beautiful baby, 'cause baby look at you now
(She's a cutie) baby look at you now

    Here is the lyrics, for anyone wanting to learn this song.



    You must have been a beautiful baby
    You must have been a wonderful child
    When you were only starting to go to kindergarten
    I bet you drove the little boys wild
    And when it came to winning blue ribbons
    You must have shown the other kids how
    I can see the judges' eyes as they handed you the prize
    I bet you made the cutest bow
    Oh you must've been a beautiful baby
    'Cause baby look at you now
    Does your mother realize
    The stork delivered quite a prize
    The day he left you on the family tree?
    Does your dad appreciate
    That you're merely super great
    The miracle of any century?
    If they don't just send them both to me
    You must have been a beautiful baby
    You must have been a wonderful child
    When you were only starting to go to kindergarten
    I bet you drove the little boys wild
    And when it came to winning blue ribbons
    You must have shown the other kids how
    I can see the judges' eyes as they handed you the prize
    I bet you made the cutest bow
    Oh you must've been a beautiful baby
    'Cause baby look at you now

    Did this song randomly come into anyone’s head ? It did for me lol super random

  5. François Parent

    I used to lived in a house built in 1935, surely this song must have echoed through the walls from the first owners.

  9. Jason Nadle

    But when it comes to cartoon versions of Bing Crosby we often heard him go "You Must've Been a Beautiful Baby, boop boop boop boop boop boop boop boop boop."

  10. Barb Folkerts

    Johnny Mercer....best song writer ever!

  11. Austin Reed

    I was introduced to this from Disney Sing Along Songs, the Flik one.

  14. Lizettete Ahhh

    Hickock?

  15. Jorge Mario Rodas

    Nice songs of a time long gone, since it was before World War II. Songs of the sort my late Dad used to hear. And they are still good to hear, when one is tired of the vulgarities and obscenities in most of today's songs.

    Smoothest voice of all time. No dumb ass video game, goofy movie, or stupid ass hip hop sample brought me here. It's my great memory of a great artist, with me living an ordinary every day life. Thanks for the upload and great music.

  21. Mike Kevitt

    I wonder if Bobby Darin listened to this rendition of Beautiful Baby by Crosby.

  22. Jaqen H'ghar

    im 23 and im sooo attracted to jazz and 35 style etc...dunno why

    DJLud100

    One possible explanation has to do with reincarnation: We want to re-experience what we enjoyed in past lives. A bizarre notion, I admit.

    acla9000

    Nope. I find them adorable. For all I understood they mean a young woman who, as a little girl, got admirers among little boys both by her appearence and qualities too. :)

    Hashim Aziz

    Any guy who sees a beautiful woman and starts wondering about how she looked like as a kid is pretty suspect.

  41. Dr. Spangle

    Who came here from looney tunes?

    acla9000

    Many of us, I suppose. :D

    Chris RJ

    Or Tiny Toon Adventures: "You must have been a beautiful PIT-BULL..."

    Yes, "Rabbit Seasoning"... He looked pretty lovely in that disguise. ;)

  46. Timelord2001

    if Morgan brought you here, then Fuck you, fuck Morgan. Go fuck yourselves you classless, uneducated, uncultured dumb fucks.. I'm out.

    Hat Duken

    @Twenty One Chauffeurs hence my agitation.

    C B

    @Hat Duken So type out your story, then.

    Hat Duken

    @Twenty One Chauffeurs I don't have a story. I like this song, because I have heard it before and I know who Bing Crosby is.

    C B

    @Hat Duken So why judge everyone else? It doesn't make any sense.

    Morgan

    Me and you will meet and have a little talk... :)

    Warner Bros. utilized this music a lot during its 1940s and 50s Merrie Melodies and Looney Tunes shorts.

    Warner Bros and Disney vhs dvd b collector

    spindalis79 I heard it in A few Tiny toon adventures episodes as well

    Mike nunya

    This song makes me think of Tom and Jerry when Tom is singing to the other lady cat while he's in his zoot suit

    Enlightened One

    "Is you is or is you aint my baby" one of my favorites....tom and jerry

    Ben Carroll

    @Orson Welles Also French Rarebit when Bugs Bunny dressed that Chef Francois to look like a rabbit.

  77. sleep. less

    everyones commenting how there grandparents sung them this song. i wish my grandparents introduced me to great music like this. this is freaking amazing!!!

  78. harrywarrenfan

    Written by two of the musical greats, music by Harry Warren and lyric by Johnny "Cloud Man" Mercer.  And with a send-off by Bing Crosby, how could it have missed?  The melody in the verse is eerily similar to a small portion of melody from Harry's very first copyrighted piece of music (1919), a slow-mid tempo tune (with lyrics also by Harry) titled "I Learned To Love You (When I Learned My ABC's)."  Harry was toling in 1919 to provide for his wife and brand new son, and turned to songwriting (and later song plugging, then back to songwriting).  By the time "You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby" was written in middle to late 1938, that only son of Harry's had died, and surely Harry was thinking about his very first song when he wrote this one.

  79. BattleBlueBoo

    My grandfather on my dad's side dedicated this song to me. It makes me happy. <3

    Hashim Aziz

    Smooth. @Figura Sombría

  84. Dirtybyrd14

  85. Carnage Artistry

    Learned this one in the second grade at Sacred Heart School in Plainfield, NJ circa 1958. These days I sing it for birthday people who visit our stores (Kelley's Beach Liquors & Wine Merchants) in Destin and FWB. Always a Big Hit! Thank You Harry Warren & Johnny Mercer! (And Der Bingle is THE BEST!)

  92. Tim Doonan

    The best combination in American pop music - lyrics by Johnny Mercer and song sung
    by Bing Crosby. So many happy, clever songs.
