This song can be heard while the Baker is telling the story to his baby. This is song is sung by Meryl Streep.


Careful the things you say
Children will listen
Careful the things you do
Children will see and learn
Children may not obey, but children will listen
Children will look to you for which way to turn

Children will learn what to be
Careful before you say "Listen to me"
Children will listen
Careful the wish you make
Wishes are children
Careful the path they take

Wishes come true, not free
Careful the spell you cast
Not just on children
Sometimes the spell may last

Past what you can see
And turn against you
Careful the tale you tell
That is the spell
Children will listen
