Baby king
Baby king
You got to get ready for a baby king
You might dance daddy
You might sing
But you never seen nothin' like a baby king

It was a bright and sunny summer morn and she said
(get ready for a baby king)
It wasn't too long 'fore he was born
(get ready for a baby king)
You could hardly tell by the look on his face
(get ready for a baby king)
That pretty soon he was gonna run the place
(get ready for a baby king)

Now he is strong and he is wise
(get ready for a baby king)
He sees right through your old disguise
(get ready for a baby king)
Now you might think that you got it down
(get ready for a baby king)
Wait till baby king comes to town
(get ready for a baby king)

Baby king
Baby king
You got to get ready for a baby king
You might dance daddy
You might sing
But you never seen nothin' like a baby king

No virgin mary brought him here
(get ready for a baby king)
But the angels whispered in his tiny little ear
(get ready for a baby king)
Then they sent him down from up above
(get ready for a baby king)
Just to show you how to really love
(get ready for a baby king)

Baby king
Baby king
You got to get ready for a baby king
You might dance daddy
You might sing
But you never seen nothin' like a baby king
