Mitzi's Lullaby  (1918) 
by Jerome Kern (music) and Edgar Allan Woolf (lyrics)
Song from the musical Head over Heels.
Sheet music cover

[Verse]

I never had a mother, but I love her just the same,
I don't know where I got myself, not even my own name
I thought I once heard someone say, "I have my papa's face,"
He left me nothing but a mark, in a most peculiar place,
and yet when things go wrong,
from the past comes this old song

[Burthen]

Nestle close to mother
darling have no fear
She can, as no other,
kiss away each tear,
Always there to cheer you
as the years roll on
She'll be ever near you,
ever when she's gone
Nestle close to mother
darling have no fear
She can, as no other
kiss away each tear,
Always there to cheer you
as the years roll on,
She'll be ever near you,
even when she's gone
Always there to cheer you
as the years roll on
She'll be ever near you
even when she's gone.
