"Baby Mine" is an iconic song featured in Dumbo. It is sung by an off screen singer (possibly Mrs. Jumbo) and a small chorus. It is heard during Dumbo's visit to his mother while she's locked up in the prison wagon. There are also circus animals in the scenes. It was also nominated for an Academy Award. It was also nominated for AFI's 100 years...100 songs, as one of 15 from Disney and one of 17 from an animated movie to be nominated. The ones that eventually made the cut was: When You Wish Upon A Star (#7), Some Day My Prince Will Come (#19), Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (#36),Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah (#47), Beauty and the Beast (#62) and Hakuna Matata (#99).

For the 1988 Touchstone film Beaches, Bette Midler covered the song during the scene where C.C. (Midler) helps Hilary (Barbara Hershey) prepare for her baby.

During Summer Nightastic!, the song was played the nights Dumbo flew over Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland.

The song is also covered by the youngest former Celtic Woman member Chloë Agnew for the Lullaby CD.

Original sheet music

Lyrics

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

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

From your head to your toes
You're so sweet, goodness knows
You are so precious to me
Cute as can be
Baby of mine

Baby mine
Baby mine

Michael Crawford's version

Baby mine, don't you cry
Baby mine, dry your eyes
Rest your head close to my heart
Never to part, baby of mine
Little one, when you play
Don't you mind what they say
Let those eyes sparkle and shine
Never a tear, baby of mine
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
From your head down to your toes
You're not much, goodness knows
But you're so precious to me
Sure as can be, baby of mine
