Hush little baby, don't say a word
Papa's going to buy you a mockingbird
If that mockingbird don't sing
Papa gonna buy you a diamond ring

And if that diamond ring is brass
Papa going to buy you a looking glass
And if that looking glass gets broke
Papa going to buy you a billy goat

And if that billy goat won't pull
Papa going to buy you a cart and bull
And if that cart and bull turn over
Papa going to buy you a dog named Rover

And if that dog named Rover won't bark
Papa going to buy you a horse and cart
And if that horse and cart fall down
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town

Sweet child and when you do dream
A dream to get you through the night
But lingers through the day
Tonight dreams are filled
I'll sing this lullaby for you, sweet child
For dreams always come true

Lullaby and good night
May sleep softly, surround you
While your dreams fill your eyes
Melody of love

May the moonlight embrace you
The starlight caress you
May the sunlight still sing you
The melody of love
