Hush Little Baby Don't Say a Word ...

Each of my kids have their own special lullaby. My son's is a musical version that I came up with to Winken, Blinken, and Nod. My daughter's is my own version to Hush Little Baby. I could never remember the words to the real version, but my version I could remember.

The kids are getting older now. Eleven and seven respectively, but they still like for me to sing their special lullabies to them when they are sick or really tired.

Here's my version of Hush Little Baby for Em:

Hush little baby, don't say a word,
Momma's gonna buy you a mockingbird.

If that mockingbird don't sing,
Momma's gonna buy you a diamond ring.

If that diamond ring don't shine,
Momma's gonna buy you a bucket of brine.

If that bucket of brine don't swim,
Momma's gonna buy you a pass to the gym.

If that pass to the gym is closed,
Momma's gonna buy you a doll that's posed.

If that doll that's posed is broke,
Momma's gonna tell you a funny joke.

Hush little baby don't say a word,
Momma's gonna buy you a mocking bird.

"and if that billy goat runs away
grandpas going to buy you a pony some day
so when your feeling down and blue
grandpas going to sing this song for you
hush little baby don't you cry
grandpas coming home soon by and by"
