Hush Little Baby, the Lullaby.

Hush Little Baby Online Gifts was named after this wonderful lullaby. Many people know the tune, but few know all the words. Such a gorgeous song to sing to your little one when they need soothing.

"Hush, Little Baby" is a traditional lullaby, thought to have been written in the United States (mockingbirds are from the New World), but the author and date of origin are unknown. The lyrics promise all kinds of rewards to the child if he or she is quiet. 

Lyrics

There are several versions of the song, but the most common lyrics are:

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

If that mockingbird won't sing,
Mama's gonna buy you a diamond ring

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

If that looking glass gets broke,
Mama's gonna buy you a billy goat,

If that billy goat don't pull,
Mama's gonna buy you a cart and bull.

If that cart and bull turn over,
Mama's gonna buy you a dog named Rover.

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

If that horse and cart fall down,
You'll be the sweetest little baby in town.

Mama is sometimes substituted by PapaDada, etc. according to the singer's relation to the child or personal preference. There are simple revisions to the lyrics, but all remain true to the promise of rewards for being quiet.

Here is one of many versions of Hush Little Baby on Youtube.
