Hush little baby, don’t you cry. Daddy’s gonna buy you a mocking bird.. so this is how Matt thinks the lyrics to this lullaby start, so I proved him wrong and googled it last night, and much to my surprise it was nothing like I had been singing over the years, maybe we just change the lyrics to suit? Here is the “original” wording..
“ Hush, little baby, don't say a word.
Papa's gonna buy you a mockingbird.
And if that mockingbird won't sing,
Papa's gonna buy you a diamond ring.
And if that diamond ring turns brass, Papa's gonna buy you a looking glass.
And if that looking glass gets broke, Papa's gonna buy you a billy goat.
And if that billy goat won't pull, Papa's gonna buy you a cart and bull.
And if that cart and bull turn over,
Papa's gonna buy you a dog named Rover.
And if that dog named Rover won't bark, Papa's gonna buy you a horse and cart.
And if that horse and cart fall down,
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town.
