"What You Gonna Call Your Pretty Little Baby?"

       
    Refrain  
 
What you gonna call your pretty little baby,
What you gonna call your pretty little baby,
What you gonna call your pretty little baby,
Born, born in Bethlehem?
 
  1. Some say one thing, I'll say Immanuel,
Born, born in Bethlehem.
Some call one thing, I'll call him Jesus
Born, born in Bethlehem.
