"Hush, Little Baby"

       
  1. Hush little baby, don't say a word,
Papa's gonna buy you a mocking bird.
 
   


 
  2. And if that mockingbird won't sing,
Mama's gonna buy you a diamond ring.
 
       
  3. And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama's gonna buy you a looking glass.
 
       
  4. And if that looking glass gets broke,
Mama's gonna buy you a billy goat.
 
       
  5. And if that billy goat won't pull,
Mama's gonna buy you a cart and bull.
 
       
  6. And if that cart and bull turn over,
Mama's going to buy you a dog named Rover.
 
       
  7. And if that dog named Rover won't bark,
Mama's going to buy you a horse and cart.
 
       
  8. And if that horse and cart fall down,
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town.
