The Sweetest Little Thing

(Chorus)
You’re the prettiest thing that the daddy’s ever seen and the daddy’s seen a lot in his whole life.
You’re as pretty as the sunrise, you’re as pretty as the moonshine, you’re as pretty as your mother, who’s my wife.
You’re the prettiest thing that the daddy’s ever seen and the daddy’s seen a whole lot in his life.
And I want you to know that I love you so and I am praying that you’ll sleep through the night.

I’ve seen an advantageous aardvarks, and brazen barracuda,
Danced the cha-cha with a cheeky chimpanzee.

I met a duplicitous dingo, and an enigmatic emu,
Who played the banjo while swinging from a tree.
-
There was a fastidious flamingo, a gregarious gorilla.
I’ve played hopscotch with a hippopotamus.

I’ve seen impudent insects and a judicious jackrabbit.
Playing cribbage on a cross-town bus.

(Chorus)

I’ve meet a knavish kangaroo, a loquacious Llama too.
Mystified marsupial galore.

A narcissistic narwhal and an ostentatious otter,
Who said that underwater he would snore.
-
A prodigious porcupine with a quixotic Quetzal,
Rabbits racing to a rendeverous.

Stupendous Salamander and a tolerant tilapia.
Playing Marko Polo in a swimming pool

(Chorus)

Ubiquitous uakari a voracious vulture
And a winsome wily wallaby

X-ray Tetra, a Yak, and a Zebra
But I’ve never met an LMNOP
(Chorus)
