I sang this in junior school 30 years ago as part of a Christmas play. I too am trying to find out about it, so if you get any more info please let me know!

The words are from a musical play called "Only a Baby" and I too am trying to find the music for the whole thing because I have lost the copy I had many years ago!

I wonder if you are able to e-mail the words and music? Forgive me, I don't mean to offend but I'm not comfortable with giving out my postal address.

Don't wait for an angel,
Or wish upon a star,
Face up to life's realities,
Dreaming never gets you far,
Look towards the future,
With golden years ahead,
And never forget, that happiness, came from a cattle shed,

He's only a baby,
He'll grow to a man,
He'll ask you to finish, the work, that he began.

I am glad I am not the only one looking for this! It has bugged me for years. I am 31 years old and sang this at about the age of 8. Seeing it now brings back some memories.
Strange how we all remember the same line (the chorus I know).

There is another one that has bugged me, it goes like this:

We musn't forget! No we musn't forget! To-say-a-great-big-thank-you, we musn't forget.

Bit of a long shot I know but I thought I'd ask.

Hi.
I have recently managed to order a copy of this musical (wasn't easy to find!!) and if anyone should want a copy of the manuscript, which is due to arrive with me soon, then send your details to [email]onlythestrongestwillsurvive@hotmail.com[/email] and I will post the copy to you. Postage cost in UK probably £2.00
