Rock A Bye Baby

Rock-a-bye baby, on the treetop, 
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock, 
When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall, 
And down will come baby, cradle and all. 

Alternative Lyrics: 

Hush-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 fall baby
Cradle and all.

Alternative Lyrics:

Rock-a-bye, baby, thy cradle is green;
Father's a nobleman, mother's a queen;
And Betty's a lady, and wears a gold ring;
And Johnny's a drummer, and drums for the king.
