It was a long and tiring night. Francine- only 3 weeks old was unable to sleep and Mary was losing her mind.

"Why won't she shut up," Mary asked Frankie.

"Honey she's a baby," Frankie reminded her, "Look you go to sleep. I'll see to Francine"

Mary sighed but went back to sleep. Frankie went into the nursery and picked his daughter up. She seemed to be colicky or unable to sleep but tired or maybe both. He rocked her and bounced her and in a tone that was happy and light he began to sing to her as if she weren't crying.

You're just too good to be true

Can't take my eyes off of you

You'd be like heaven to touch

I wanna hold you so much

At long last love has arrived

And I thank GOD I'm alive

You're just too good to be true

Can't take my eyes off you

Francine stopped crying and looked at her father with big beautiful eyes. She looked at him as if she were smiling. It melted his heart.

Pardon the way that I stare

There's nothing else to compare

The sight of you leave me weak

There are no words left to speak

But if you feel like I do

Please let me know that it's you

You're just too good to be true

Can't take my eyes off of you

Francine was now giggling like there was no tomorrow (though I personally don't know what's funny about there being no tomorrow.). Frankie delighted in the sweet sound of his daughter's giggles.

I love you baby

And if it's quite alright I need you baby

Out in the lonely night I need you baby

Trust in me when I say

Frankie now held Francine cradled in his arms. She was almost asleep so he made his voice a little lower

Oh pretty baby

Don't bring me down okay oh pretty baby

Now that I found you stay

And let me love you baby

Let me love you

You're just too good to be true

Can't take my eyes off you

You'd be like heaven to touch

I wanna hold you so much

At long last love has arrived

And I thank GOD I'm alive

You're just to good to be true

Can't take my eyes off you

He laid the now sleeping baby in her crib and kissed her goodnight.
