Hush Little Baby

Listen

Hush little baby don't you cry
Mama's gonna make you some rhubarb pie
And if that rhubarb pie's too sour
Mama's gonna buy you a wildflower
And when that wildflower wilts
Mama's gonna buy you a pair of stilts
And if that pair of stilts aren't steady
Mama's gonna buy you a bowl of spaghetti

And if that spaghetti is not al dente
Mama's gonna buy you a horn of plenty
And if that horn doesn't have the right fruit
Mama's gonna buy you a two-piece suit
And if that suit's not the right material
Mama's gonna buy you a bowl of cereal
And if that cereal is not low-carb
Mama's gonna make you more rhubarb
So hush little baby and don't you moan,
It's been thirty years of A Prairie Home.
