Hush Little Baby Lyrics

Hush, little baby, don't say a word, 

Mama's gonna buy you a mockingbird. 


If that mockingbird don't sing,

Mama's gonna buy you a diamond ring.


If that diamond ring turns brass, 

Mama's gonna buy you a looking glass.


If that looking glass gets broke,

Mama's gonna buy you a billy goat.


If that billy goat don't pull, 

Mama's gonna buy you a cart and bull.


If that cart and bull turn over,

Mama's gonna buy you a dog named Rover.


If that dog named Rover won't bark,

Mama's gonna buy you a horse and cart.


If that Horse and Cart fall down, 

You'll be the sweetest little baby in town!
