"Crackerjack fool" as written by and Josephine Foster....
Hush little baby don't say a word
Mama's gonna buy you a mockingbird
Ma ma ma ma, caw caw caw caw
La la la lock your door, it's unfurled!

Shush, mi bambina, ain't you heard?
Papa's gonna build you a knob that turns
Na na na na, caw caw caw caw
La la la lock your door, it's unfurled!

Your door is unfurled, your door is unfurled!

Hush pretty Sadie, ain't you learned?
Y'ought not repeat the naughty words
Papa says no, na na na no
La la la lock your door, it's unfurled!

My daddy was a Jack-of-all-trades
and the whole wide world's in awe of his ways
My daddy was a Jack-of-all-trades
and the whole wide world's in awe of his ways

Shush little baby, you be cool!
Or you're gonna grow into a crackerjack fool!

caw caw caw caw coo coo coo coo
caw caw caw caw coo coo coo coo
coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo
coo coo coo coo coo coo!
