Hush Little Baby
Hush little baby, don't say a word
Mama's going to buy you a mockin' bird
And if that mockin' bird don't sing
Mama's going to buy you a diamond ring
And if that diamond ring turns brass
Mama's going to buy you a looking glass
And if that looking glass gets broke
Mama's going to buy you a billy goat
And if that billy goat don't pull
Mama's going to buy you a cart and bull
And if that cart and bull turn over
Mama's going to buy you a dog named Rover
And if that dog named Rover don't bark
Mama's going to buy you a horse and cart
And if that horse and cart fall down
Well you'll still be the sweetest little baby in town
