Watch the Baby!

Mom said I should watch the baby 
While she's at the store. 
"Now, young man, I don't mean maybe!" 
Then she slammed the door.   

With a frown, I sighed again, 
"I hope he's not too needy!" 
I shut the TV down, and then 
I watched him—yes indeedy!   

I watched the baby crawl around, 
I watched the baby cry, 
I watched him ride the Bassett Hound 
And make the goldfish fly.   

I watched the baby yanking at 
The dining table cloth. 
I watched him yak in Daddy's hat, 
I watched him eat a moth.  

I watched him lick the windows clear 
Just like a windshield wiper, 
Then watched him as he laughed and smeared 
Them with his stinky diaper.   

My baby-watching's just begun— 
I hope Mom stays away! 
If I knew it was this much fun, 
I'd watch him every day!
