Paul Origins: Hush little baby, don't say a word (60* d) RE: lyrics for Mockingbird lullaby 17 Sep 98


Bo Diddley Bo Diddley have you heard
Papa's gonna buy you a mockingbird
If that mockingbird don't sing
Papa's gonna buy you a diamond ring
And if that diamond ring don't shine
Papa's gonna take it to a private eye
If that private eye can't see
He'd better not take no ring from me

Hey Bo Diddley (echo)
Hey Bo Diddley (echo)


...OR...


Hush little baby don't say a word
Daddy's gonna buy you a Thunderbird
If you don't like that type of car
Your daddy's gonna buy you a Jay-goo-arr
If that Jay-goo-arr won't do
Daddy's gonna buy you a Ferrari, too
If that Ferrari isn't your choice
Daddy's gonna buy you a new Rolls Royce
If you don't like the Rolls, we'd better have a talk
'Cause after that baby you can damn well walk


The first one is from my days as a blues musician, the second is from my childhood.
