About You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby

"You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby" is a popular song with music by Harry Warren and lyrics by Johnny Mercer, published in 1938 by Remick Music Corporation. It was featured in the Warner Brothers movie Hard to Get, released November 1938, in which it was sung by Dick Powell. The biggest-selling hit version was recorded by Bing Crosby, with Bob Crosby and his orchestra 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. It was used frequently in the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons, also produced by Warner Brothers, under the musical direction of Carl W. Stalling.

You must have been a beautiful baby, 
you must have been a wonderful child
When you were only startin' 
to go to kindergarten 
I bet you drove the little boys wild! 

An' when it came to winning blue ribbons, 
you must have shown the other kids how 
I can see the judge's eyes as they handed you the prize 
I bet you made the cutest bow! 

Oh!, You must have been a beautiful baby, 
'cause baby look at you now 

Does your dad appreciate 
that you are merely great? 
Does your mother realize 
you're such a treat for the eyes? 

You must have been a beautiful baby, 
you must have been a wonderful child 
When you were only startin' 
to go to kindergarten 
I bet you drove the little boys wild! 

An' when it came to winning blue ribbons, 
you must have shown the other kids how 
I can see the judge's eyes as they handed you the prize 
I bet you made the cutest bow! 

Oh!, You must have been a beautiful baby, 
'cause baby look at you now (she's a cutie!) 
baby look at you now
