Where do babies come from

Where do babies come from mommy?
Maybe they are manufatured in a factory
An aeroplane brought Shanny
She was so small and tiny
From the hospital came Skinny
They seemed to carry a towel empty
Mommy, just be frank with me
Where do babies come from?

I never did hear the landing of a plane
Never did I see a pilot in the lane
Yet I saw Shanny without a neck to crane.
Skinny was quite humane
We had all that to ascertain
So the hospital story we couldn't entertain.
Mommy, just be frank with me
Where do babies come from?

One thing for sure, mommy
All with new babies had a big tummy
Yet they came as flat as a mummy
The stomachs weren't stuffed like a dummy
It was not even trampled by an army
Or later smeared in balmy
Mommy, just be frank with me
Where do babies come from?
