Hush, Little Baby

by Unknown

Hush, little baby, don’t say a word,
Mama’s gonna buy you a mockingbird.

Hush, Little Baby

And if that mockingbird don’t sing,
Mama’s gonna buy you a diamond ring.

And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama’s gonna buy you a looking glass.

And if that looking glass is broke,
Mama’s gonna buy you a billy goat,

And if that billy goat won’t pull,
Mama’s gonna buy you a cart and a bull.

And if that cart and bull turn over,
Mama’s gonna buy you a dog named Rover.

And if that dog named Rover won’t bark,
Mama’s gonna buy you a horse and a cart.

And if that horse and cart fall down,
You’ll still be the sweetest little baby in town.

So hush little baby, don’t you cry.
Papa loves you and so do I.
