Hush Little Baby

Today I discovered the magical song (well, lullaby) to get the little man to sleep without much fuss! Of course I’ve heard it before, but I had to look up the full lyrics today as I was getting desperate because he just won’t go down in the daytime even when he is awfully tired and grumpy, but this has worked 3 times today. I’m sure I’ll know it off by heart soon! 

There are a few variations but this is the one I’ve been singing today. 

Hush, little baby, don’t say a word,
Mama’s going to buy you a mockingbird.

If that mockingbird won’t sing,
Mama’s going to buy you a diamond ring.

If that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama’s going to buy you a looking glass.

If that looking glass gets broke,
Mama’s going to buy you a billy goat.

If that billy goat won’t pull,
Mama’s going to buy you a cart and bull.

If that cart and bull turn over,
Mama’s going to buy you a dog named Rover.

If that dog named Rover won’t bark,
Mama’s going to buy you a horse and cart.

If that horse and cart fall down,

You’ll still be the sweetest little boy in town.

So hush little baby, don’t you cry,
Daddy loves you and so do I.
