A New Baby In The House Edgar Guest Something to talk about, something to do, Something to laugh at the whole day through, Something to look at with pride and with glee, Something for friends to come in just to see; Something you can't sum up all the wonderful things Of joy and delight which a new baby brings. There's a smile that is brighter than sunbeams of May, A wave of farewell as you're starting away, A glad time of frolic which no one can steal, A thrill inexpressible, lovely to feel. There's something to boast of and something to tell When a baby has come to the place where you dwell. There's never an hour that is lonely and drear; The days are filled up to the top with good cheer. You have someone to play with and someone to sing to, Someone to romp with and someone to cling to; And always you're finding some pleasure that's new When God has sent down a glad baby to you.
