I'm looking for the words to Hush Little Baby (Mama's Gonna Buy You a Mockingbird, or Papa's Gonna Buy You a Mockingbird). If anyone knows, please let me know.

Whoops, Hit return too soon.

Does anyone have the parody that starts?...
Katie, katie is no good
chop her up for firewood
If that firewood don't burn, put her in the butter churn.

Bert.

Dear Bert,

I am very, very sad to say I remember another one, though:

Hush little baby, don't say a word,

or Mama's goin to feed you to the devil bird,

and if that devil bird don't choke,

We'll put you with a pig in a poke,

And if that pig don't snarfle you up,

We'll drown you with a blinded pup.

And if that blinded pu don't puke,

We'll give you to a man named Duke...

(At this point my memory thankfully fades)

Yours, Peter

Burl Ives sing the lyrics as in D/T but adds the following line on the end.

Hear, oh, hear the night birds call

Soon, oh, soon the dark will fall.

Hm.. I don't remember all of it, but I do Remember

Hush little baby don't say a word Daddy's gonna buy you a mockingbird

If that mocking bird won't sing Daddy's gonna buy you a diamond ring

If that diamond ring turns to brass Daddy's gonna buy you a looking glass

But beyond that, my memory is gone.. *sigh.. getting senile at age 17! *smile*

Lomax collected a version of Ollie Jackson from a sawmill worker, 'Hush, girls and boys,don't you-all say a word. I'm gonna sing you a new song now that you haven't ever heard, refrain; When you lose your money, learn to lose.

thats the the start and the only similarity, but I thought an interesting peice.

While I remember the lyrics as the ones that are two messages above me, I have a Sesame Street version, though my friends and I have always liked making it up as we go...
