ABCKIDSTV – Cocomelon
★ History of the Song:
Originally titled “Hush-a-bye Baby,” this nursery rhyme was said to be the first poem written on American soil (according to 1904’s Book Lover). There’s no official record, however, that proves when the song was written. Some sources claim it was as early as the 1500s. It first appeared in print in Mother Goose’s Melody in 1765 and contained a stern morality lesson in the footnote: “This may serve as a Warning to the Proud and Ambitious, who climb so high that they generally fall at last.”

★ Rock a Bye Baby Lyrics:
Rock a bye Baby in the tree top
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock
When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall
And down will come baby, cradle and all
Baby is drowsing, cozy and fair
Mother sits near in her rocking chair
Forward and back the cradle she swings
Though baby sleeps, he hears what she sings
Rock a bye Baby, do not you fear
Never mind, Baby, Mother is near
Wee little fingers, eyes are shut tight
Now sound asleep until morning light
With My Heart
