Little baby told God, hey I'm kind of scared,
Don't really know if I want to go down there.
From here it looks like a little blue ball,
That's a great big place and I'm so small.
Why can't I just stay here with you?
Did I make you mad, don't you want me too?
God said, oh child, of course I do
But there's somebody special waiting for you

So hush now baby, don't you cry
Cause there's someone down there waiting whose only goal in life
Is making sure you're always gonna be alright
A loving angel, tender, tough and strong
It's almost time to go and meet your mom.

You'll never have a better friend
Or a warmer touch to tuck you in
She'll kiss your bruises, your bumps and scrapes
And anytime you hurt, her heart's gonna break

So hush now baby, don't you cry
'Cause there's someone down there waiting whose only goal in life
Is making sure you're always gonna be alright
A loving angel, tender, tough and strong
It's almost time to go and meet your mom.

And when she's talking to you, make sure you listen close
She's gonna teach you everything you'll ever need to know
Like how to mind your manners, to love and laugh and dream
She'll put you on the path that'll bring you back to me.

So, hush now little baby, don't you cry
Cause there's someone down there waiting whose only goal in life
Is making sure you're always gonna be alright
A loving angel, tender, tough and strong
Come on child, it's time to meet your mom.
