Mommy had a little baby
There he is fast asleep
He's just a little play thing
Why not wake him up?

Cute, cute, little baby
Little fee-feet, little toes
Now he's comin' to me
Crawl across the kitchen floor

Baby, baby, please let me hold him
I wanna make him stay up all night
Sister, sister, he's just a play thing
We wanna make him stay up all night, yeah we do

See him drink from a bottle
See him eat from a plate
Cute, cute as a button
Don't you wanna make him stay up late

And we're having fun with no money
Little smile on his face
Don't you love the little baby
Don't you want to make him stay up late

Baby, baby, please let me hold him
I wanna make him stay up all night
Sister, sister, he's just a play thing
We wanna make him stay up all night

Here we go
(All night long)
Sister, sister
(All night long)
In the playpen
(All night long)
Little baby goes
(All night long)
I know you wanna leave me

Why don't we pretend?
There you go, little man
Cute, cute, why not?
Late at night, wake him up

Baby, baby, please let me hold him
I wanna make him stay up all night
Sister, sister, he's just a play thing
We wanna make him stay up all night

Here we go
(All night long )
Sister, sister
(With the television on)
Little baby goes
(All night long)
Hey, hey, baby
(All night long)
And he looks so cute
(All night long)
In his little red suit
(All night long)

All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long
