★ History of the Song:

“Hush, Little Baby” is a traditional lullaby, thought to have been written in the Southern United States. Like most folk songs, the author and date of origin are unknown. The lyrics promise all kinds of rewards to the child if they are quiet. The simple structure allows more verses to be added ad lib.
The song has been performed and recorded by many artists including Joan Baez, Burl Ives, Regina Spektor, Nina Simone, The Weavers and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

Additionally, the song has been adapted into pop songs such as Maurice King’s “Hambone”, Inez and Charlie Foxx’s “Mockingbird” and Bo Diddley’s eponymous song “Bo Diddley”, as well as Bobby McFerrin and Yo-Yo Ma’s “Hush Little Baby” and Eminem’s “Mockingbird”.

Aretha Franklin, Carly Simon, James Taylor, Etta James, Taj Mahal and Dusty Springfield have each recorded “Mockingbird”, which is an R&B variant of the song. “Mockingbird” was featured humorously as a car travel song in the films National Lampoon’s Vacation (1983) and Dumb & Dumber (1994).

“Hush Little Baby” has also been used in the play The Miracle Worker, about Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan.

★ Hush Little Baby Lyrics:

Hush, little baby, don’t say a word,
Mama’s going to buy you a mockingbird.

If that mockingbird won’t sing,
Mama’s going to buy you a diamond ring.

If that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama’s going to buy you a looking glass.

If that looking glass gets broke,
Mama’s going to buy you a billy goat.

If that billy goat won’t pull,
Mama’s going to buy you a cart and bull.

If that cart and bull turn over,
Mama’s going to buy you a dog named Rover.

If that dog named Rover won’t bark,
Mama’s going to buy you a horse and cart.

If that horse and cart fall down,
You’ll still be the sweetest little boy in town.

So hush little baby, don’t you cry,
Daddy loves you and so do I.
