"Baby Mine" is a song featured in Dumbo. It is sung by the offscreen voice of Betty Noyes (implied to be Mrs. Jumbo) and a small chorus. It is heard when Timothy takes Dumbo to visit his mother, who is locked up in solitary confinement. There are also circus animals during the song, where they are seen sleeping with their babies throughout their last appearance in the film.

The song was 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), "Someday 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.

In the 2019 film, while Mrs. Jumbo is locked and chained in the cart, Miss Atlantis sings the song by the campfire while playing the ukelele. It is the only song from the original film to be performed in full in the remake. A cover version performed by Arcade Fire also appears during the end credits and is also included on the soundtrack.

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

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 to your toes
You're not much, goodness knows
But you're so precious to me
Cute as can be, baby of mine

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
Sweet as can be, baby of mine

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
Oh, all those same people who scold you
What they'd give just for the right to hold you

From your head to your toes
You're not much, goodness knows
But you're so precious to me
Cute as can be, baby of mine

You are so precious to me
Cute as can be, baby of mine

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
