Hush, little baby, don't say a word
Papa's gonna buy you a mocking bird
And if that mocking bird don't sing
Papa's gonna buy you a diamond ring
And If that diamond ring is 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 don't bark,
Papa's gonna buy a horse and cart
And that horse and cart fall down,
You'll still be the sweetest baby in town
Sleep child and when you do
Dream a dream to drift you through
The night that lingers through the day
Tonight, dreams of you
I'll sing this lullaby for you
Sleep child, for dreams always come true.
Lullaby and goodnight,
May sleep softly surround you
While your dreams fill your eyes
With a melody of love
May the moonlight embrace you
The starlight caress you
May the sunlight still sing you
This lullaby of love

Dadadaa... dadadaaa,,,
