Hush little baby

Mother Goose

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 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 don'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 you a horse and cart
And if that horse and cart fall down
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town.
