What Are We Gonna Do About the Baby?

by Barry Louis Polisar

Oh No, what are we gonna do?
What are we gonna do about the baby?
Oh No, what are we gonna do?
What are we gonna do about the baby?

We can put her in diapers, we can give her a bath,
Make sure that she's secure and doesn't bump her head,
Cuddle her and tickle her and try to make her laugh,
Powder her bottom, get her ready for bed.

We can put her in the playpen, we can put her in the crib,
Feed her and wash her and change her.
We can wiggle her middle, let her dribble on her bib,
Take her back to the store and exchange her.

We can hold her in our arms and try to make her burp,
We can bounce her and rock her and roll her.
We can kiss her and hug her and wipe away her hurts
Or push her down the hill in the stroller.
