You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby

Lyrics:Johnny Mercer
Music:Harry Warren

The song was publishe 1938.

It was featured in the movie Hard to Get, released November 1938,
where it was sung by Dick Powell.

Originally, the song was recorded by Bing Crosby
for the biggest-selling hit version,
while other contemporaneous hit versions included
recordings by Tommy Dorsey (with vocal by Edythe Wright) and Russ Morgan.
It was also revived by Bobby Darin in 1961,
reaching the charts again that year.
The song has been recorded by many other artists
(see below for a partial list) and is considered a popular standard.

Does your mother realize
The stork delivered quite a prize
The day he left you on the family tree?
Does your dad appreciate
That you're merely supergreat
The miracle of any century?
If they don't just send them both to me.

You must have been a beautiful baby
You must have been a wonderful child
When you were only starting to go to kindergarten
I bet you drove the little boys wild.

And when it came to winning blue ribboms
You must have shown the other kids how.
I can see the judges' eyes as they handed you the prize
You must have made the cutest bow.

You must've been a beautiful baby
'Cause baby, look at you now.
