Song lyrics

[verse 1]
Baby mine, don't you cry
Baby mine, dry your eyes
Rest your head close to my heart
Never to part
Baby of mine

[verse 2]
Little one when you play
Don't you mind what you say
Let those eyes sparkle and shine
Never a tear
Baby of mine

[verse 3]
From your head, down to your toes
([chorus] baby mine)
You're so sweet, goodness knows
([chorus] baby mine)
You are so precious to me
([chorus] precious to me)
([chorus] baby of mine)
Baby of mine
Baby of mine
([chorus] baby mine)

[additional verse]
If they knew sweet little you
They'd end up loving you too
All those same people who scold you
What they'd give just for
The right to hold you.

Joe Grant and Dick Huemer changed Dumbo's mother's name from "Mother Ella" to "Mrs. Jumbo" as a reference to the famed Barnum & Bailey circus pachyderm.

The song is included in Dumbo Movie Songs

Final negative cost of Dumbo was $813,000 (making it the least expensive of all Disney's animated features), and it grossed over $2.5 million in its original release. More than the original grosses of Pinocchio (1940) and Fantasia (1940) combined.

While the film won an Academy Award for Best Scoring of a Musical Picture, its key song "Baby Mine" failed to win the Academy Award for Best Original Song.
