"Hush-a-bye" as written by and Peter/stookey Yarrow....
Hush-a-bye, don't you cry,
go to sleep you little baby.
When you wake you shall have
all the pretty little horses.

Dapples and greys, pintos and bays,
all the pretty little horses.

Way down yonder in the meadow,
poor little baby crying, "mama".
Birds and the butterflies flutter round his eyes,
poor little baby crying, "mama".

Hush-a-bye, don't you cry,
go to sleep you little baby.
When you wake you shall have
all the pretty little horses.

Dapples and greys, pintos and bays,
all the pretty little horses.

Hush-a-bye, don't you cry,
go to sleep you little baby.
