Songs about Babies and Children

As the saying goes, it's the longest shortest time. Kids make us laugh, they make us cry, and above all else, they remind us there is always beauty and kindness in the world. The full Spotify playlist is at the bottom of the blog.

Baby Mine - Alsion Krauss

Baby mine / Don't you cry / Baby mine / Dry your eyes / Rest your head close to my heart / Never to part / Baby of mine

Barefoot Children - Jimmy Buffet

Barefoot children in the rain / Got no need to explain / We'd be swingin' on a ball and chain / It's always understood by those who play the game / barefoot children in the rain

Home - Phillip Phillips
Settle down, it'll all be clear / Don't pay no mind to the demons / They fill you with fear / The trouble it might drag you down / If you get lost, you can always be found / Just no you're not alone / Cause I'm going to make this place your home

Then They Do - Trace Adkins
I swear I cant wait 'til they grow up / Then they do / And that's how it is / It's just quiet in the morning / Can't believe how much you miss / All they do / And all they did / You want all the dreams they've dreamed of to come true / Then they do

Free To Be You and Me - Marlo Thomas

Every boy in this land grow to be his own man / In this land, every girl grows to be her own woman / Take my hand, come with me where the children are free / Come with me, take my hand, and we'll run

A Mothers Prayer - Carnie Wilson
I close my eyes and pray for peace / Cause now it means much more to me / This is a mothers prayer / And as you grow as seasons pass / I hope that time won't move too fast / Thought it is too much to ask / This is a mothers prayer

Father and Daughter - Paul Simon
I'm gonna watch you shine / Gonna watch you grow / Gonna paint a sign / So you always know / As long as one and one is two / There could never be a father / Love his daughter more than I love you

Godspeed - The Dixie Chicks
God bless mommy and matchbox cars / God bless dad and thanks for the stars / God hears amen wherever we are / And I love you

You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby - Bing Crosby
You must have been a beautiful baby / You must have been a wonderful child / Oh you must have been a beautiful baby / 'Cause baby look at you now

Front Porch Looking In - Lonestar

There's a carrot top who can barely walk / With a sippy cup of milk / A little blue eyed blonde with shoes on wrong / 'Cause she likes to dress herself / And the most beautiful girl holding both of them / And the view I love the most / Is my front porch looking in

Lullabye - Billy Joel

Goodnight, my angel / Now it's time to dream / And dream how wonderful your life will be / Someday your child my cry / And if you sing this lullabye / Then in your heart / There will always be a part of me

When We Grow Up - Diana Ross & Michael Jackson
Well I don't care if I'm pretty at all / And I don't care if I ever get tall / I like what I look like, and you're nice small / We don't have to change at all
