Hush a Bye Baby


Hush a Bye Baby

Hush-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.

History:

The words and origin of this rhyme records a young pilgrim in the Americas seeing how natives hung their children from tree branches. This is thought to be one of the first rhymes created in the Americas.
