1. Hush, little baby, don’t say a word,
Mama’s gonna buy you a mockingbird.
2. And if that mockingbird don’t sing,
Mama’s gonna buy you a diamond ring
3. And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama’s gonna buy you a looking glass.
4. And if that looking glass is broke,
mama’s gonna buy you a billy goat.
5. And if that billy goat won’t pull,
Mama’s gonna buy you a cart and a bull.
6. And if that cart and bull turn over,
Mama’s gonna buy you a dog named Rover.
7. And if that dog named Rover won’t bark,
Mama’s gonna buy you a horse and a cart.
8. And if that horse and cart fall down,
you’ll still be the sweetest little baby in town.
