Your Baby Is Really Ugly

By Elton Camp

At no time and in no way

Will anyone these words say

For electing to tell the truth

In such a case is too uncouth

Wise folks play the praise game

Even when the words sound lame

Tell the parents what they'd hear

Or never again, to them, come near

The baby's head come to a point

And its nose looks out of joint

Plus, it is terribly cross-eyed

And couldn't smile if it tried

There's nothing that it can do

Except from its orifices spew

Spindly leg and undeveloped arm

Blue skin should sound an alarm

But if the truth you ever dare to tell

Expect to hear, "You can go to hell."

If words you are compelled to utter,

"Oh, how cute," you'd better mutter
