...is brass,
Mommy's gonna buy you a looking glass.
If that looking-glass gets broke,
Mommy's gonna buy you a billy-goat.
If that billy-goat won't pull,
Mommy's gonna buy you a cart and bull.
If that cart and bull turn over,
Mommy's gonna buy you a dog named Rover.
If that dog named Rover won't bark,
Mommy's gonna buy you a horse and cart.
If that horse and cart fall down,
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town.

At least, that's the way I learned it; I'm sure there are endless variations.

Probably based on "Hush Little Baby Don't You Cry! Or You'll Be An Angel Bye and Bye," 1884, words and music by F. Belasco (M. H. Rosenfeld). In Levy Sheet Music: HUSH, LITTLE BABY, DON'T YOU CRY!

Sorry-
Hush Little Baby

The picture on the cover of the sheet music tells it all.

Here's the text from the Levy site. (See link above.)

HUSH, LITTLE BABY, DON'T YOU CRY.
Words & Music by F. Belasco (M. H. Rosenfeld), 1884.
"Written expressly for and inscribed to the inimitable Lotta, The Queen of Soubrettes, The Favorite of Favorites."

No use for to weep and cry in de morn,
You'll be an angel bye and bye.
Dig up de taters. Hoe up de corn
You'll be an angel bye and bye.
Tie on de armor, armor of de Lord.
You'll be an angel bye and bye.
Put on de helmet, swing on de sword,
You'll be an angel bye and bye.

CHORUS: Hush, little baby. Don't you cry.
You'll be an angel bye and bye.
Singing sweetly all the day, all the day, happy day.
Hush, little baby. Don't you cry.
You'll be an angel bye and bye.
Softly, sweetly, gently sleep.
You'll be an angel bye and bye.
Don't you cry.

Ole Satan's a-comin'. Don't you run.
You'll be an angel bye and bye.
Put on de armor. Level up yo' gun.
You'll be an angel bye and bye.
Aim for his bosom. Hit him in the back.
You'll be an angel bye and bye.
Keep on a-shootin'. Keep him off de track.
You'll be an angel bye and bye.

Put on de robe and frissle up yo' har,
You'll be an angel bye and bye.
Get out yo' ticket for de gospel car.
You'll be an angel bye and bye.
Pin on de armor, armor of de Lord.
You'll be an angel bye and bye.
Watch de train. Jump on board.
You'll be an angel bye and bye.

Jim Dixon, thanks for posting that. It is much more interesting than it seemed to me when I glanced through the sheet music.
