Thread Name: Origins: Hush little baby, don't say a word
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Hush little baby, don't say a word
I sing to Harry (our cat) various ad hoc verses starting with

      Hush, little kitty, don't be absurd,
      Poppa's gonna feed you a mockingbird.

      If that mockingbird tastes bad,
      Poppa's gonna feed you a pickled shad.

etc. (whatever comes to mind)

You can see Harry and my wife Paula coming together over a frozen rat if you scroll down a ways on this page (may take a while to load) from our photo album:
