"BABY IN A BASKET"

Chorus 1
Baby in a basket,
I see a baby in a basket.
[Repeat three times]

Jochebed put her little baby boy
In a little basket.
Jochebed put her little baby boy
In a little basket.

The baby had to hide
Because the Pharaoh wasn't nice.
Jochebed put her little baby boy
In a little basket.

Chorus 2
Baby in a basket,
I see a baby in a basket.

Little sister Miriam went with her brother
To the river.
Little sister Miriam went with her brother
To the river.
The basket was a boat.
See the little baby float!
Little sister Miriam went with her brother
To the river.

[Repeat Chorus 2]

Baby in a basket, he was discovered
By the princess.-
Baby in a basket, he was discovered
By the princess.-
She gave that babe a home
And loved that baby as her own.
Baby in a basket, he was discovered
By the princess.

She named him Moses,
She named him Moses.
--Baby in a basket,
She named him Moses,
She named him Moses.
Baby in a basket!
