Where Do Babies Come From

Where do babies come from?

I think that is the question

Do they come from heaven on angel wings?

 

Or, are they made of clay,

Return to earth some day?

Well, that’s what preachers

Say in church on Sundays.

(Chorus)

I can see why you’re confused,

And you think you need some clues,

To find out where babies come from.

 

So, you asked your mother

Where she got your baby brother.

She said, “Like all the others,

From an old wood stump.”

(child repeats)

An old wood stump.

(Chorus)

I can see why you’re confused,

And you think that there’s no use;

You’ll never know where babies come from.

 

You think you’ll never know.

(Child repeats) I’ll never know.

You think you’ll never know.

(Child repeats) I’ll never know.

You think you’ll never know where babies come from.
