Mama brushes her teeth, rubs the sleep from her eyes
Never knowing she's in for a great big surprise
She returns to her room for a sweater you see,
When she sees a big lump--Oh, what can it be?
Is it a monster, a boogey-man, a puppy to rub?
The little voice giggles, "Mama, it's Eli Jacob!"
"Oh Eli", I sigh, " I'm soooo glad it's you!"
You frightened your Mama to Timbucktoo!
I snuggle way under the covers with him,
And on his sweet face, I see a big grin
"Is Mommy's bed warm?" He affirms with a nod
And I think that he looks like a pea in the pod
Two big brown eyes peeking out at me,
Nothing more precious could ever, ever be!
