He doesn't care that I'm not richA
Or that I'm poorly dressedB
That I'm a toiler in the ditchA
He hasn't even guessedB
My faults that other people knowC
He doesn't even seeD
For every night with eyes aglowC
He toddles up to meD
-
Although I'm just a common dubE
And ordinary clayF
His cheek to mine he's glad to rubE
Before I go awayF
And every night when I returnG
He's glad as he can beD
And though but little I may earnG
He toddles up to meD
-
To come to me he'd leave a kingH
If one were sitting nearI
Unto no millionaire he'd clingH
If only I'd appearI
And though but tattered rags are mineJ
When I go home to teaD
With eyes that fairly beam and shineJ
He'd toddle up to meD
-
And so I've reason to be gladK
And reason to rejoiceL
It's worth the world to be a dadK
To be a baby's choiceL
There is no prize fame can bestowC
No joy can ever beD
So real as when with eyes aglowC
He toddles up to meD
