Hush a Bye Baby
Hush-a-Bye, baby, on the tree top!
There you are put, and there you must stop!
This way and that way the cradle will swing,
high on the tree where the birds sit and sing.
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock!
Then, baby, take care of your pretty new frock!
For if the strong wind should blow it away,
And take you inside it, why, what would you say?
And should the bough break, the cradle would fall
Then down would come baby, the new frock and all!
But hush-a-bye baby, don't cry, pretty dear,
The bough is quite strong, there is no need to fear!
