Hush Little Baby

 
Baby Pictured in a Pink Crib
Lisa Loeb

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
