Hush, little baby.
Don't say a word.
Mama's going to buy you
a mocking bird.

And if that mocking bird won't sing,
Mama's going to buy you
a diamond ring.

If that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama's going to buy you
a looking glass.

If that looking glass gets broke,
Mama's going to buy you
a billy goat.

If that billy goat won't pull,
Mama's going to buy you
a cart and bull.

If that cart and bull turns over,
Mama's going to buy
a dog named Rover.

If that dog named Rover won't bark,
Mama's going to buy you
a horse and cart

If that horse and cart falls down,
You¹ll still be the sweetest one in town.
