Who takes him walking down the street,
And shows him off to all they meet,
And buys him stuff he shouldn't eat?
Who slips him candy on the sly?
Who scoffs at every law we make
To save him from the tummy ache,
And fills him full of chocolate cake?

That I don't think some of you,

But each thought of you rings true;

Asking God to keep you free
From all life's ills and sorrows—
And to let you think of me.

Join in the chorus too,
And every gentle wind that blows
