Hush-a-by, baby, your cradle is green;
Father’s a nobleman; mother’s a queen;
Betty’s a lady, and wears a gold ring,
And Johnny’s a drummer and drums for the king.
Rock-a-by baby on the tree top
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock
When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall
And down will come cradle, baby and all
Enjoyed that? Then you might like these...
