What'll I Do With the Baby-O?
Folk Song with additional lyrics by Bob Silberg
Barbara Klaskin Silberg

 Vocal     

What’ll I do with the baby-o
What’ll I do with the baby-o
What’ll I do with the baby-o
If she won’t go to sleepy-o?

Wrap her up in calico
Wrap her up in calico
Wrap her up in calico
And send her to her mommy-o.

What’ll I do with the baby-o
What’ll I do with the baby-o
What’ll I do with the baby-o
If she won’t go to sleepy-o?

Rock her cradle to and fro
Rock her cradle to and fro
Rock her cradle to and fro
Cozy by the fire’s glow.

What’ll I do with the baby-o
What’ll I do with the baby-o
What’ll I do with the baby-o
If he won’t go to sleepy-o?

Bounce him on your lappy-o
Bounce him on your lappy-o
Bounce him on your lappy-o
Bounce him till he’s happy-o.

Toss him here, toss him there
Toss him ten feet in the air
Do a dance, sing a song
Keep it up the whole night long.

What’ll I do with the baby-o
What’ll I do with the baby-o
What’ll I do with the baby-o
You tell me, ‘cause I don’t know!
