Hush, little baby, don't say a word,
Mama's going to buy you a mockingbird.
If that mockingbird won't sing,
Papa'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,
Papa's going to buy you a billy-goat.
And if that billy-goat runs away,
Mama's going to buy you another one today.
And all of these things your parents will do,
Because you're the best little child in the world.
