Baby Shoes

(9 measure introduction)


Imagine the love of a child for its toys,
The love of a bird for its mate,
Imagine the love of a miser for gold,
Then imagine a love twice as great.
If you multiply each love a million times o'er,
It won't be half the love that a mother has for:



Baby Shoes, Baby Shoes,
Mother will never forget them.
You have forgotten when your feet were bare,
Mother remembers, she still has a pair of:


Baby Shoes, Baby Shoes
To keep them the world she'd refuse.
If she had to choose, 
Her life she would lose,
Before she'd part with her baby's shoes.




Alone in the attic she fondles those shoes,
And wonders where her boy has gone.
And over those shoes she is saying a pray'r,
She is praying to keep him from harm.


In her heart there is gladness,
Tho' her eyes are wet,
Ev'ry mother remembers,
While you may forget:




Baby Shoes, Baby Shoes,
Mother will never forget them.
You have forgotten when your feet were bare,
Mother remembers, she still has a pair of:


Baby Shoes, Baby Shoes,
To keep them the world she'd refuse.
If she had to choose, 
Her life she would lose,
Before she'd part with her baby's shoes.


Baby Shoes, Baby Shoes,
To keep them the world she'd refuse.
If she had to choose, 
Her life she would lose,
Before she'd part with her baby's shoes.
