Rock-a-bye, baby, in the tree top
When the wind blows the cradle will rock
Who put the cradle in the tree??? How did they even do that?
When the bough breaks the cradle will fall
Down will come baby, cradle and all
This is so scary…I hope the baby wasn’t hurt!
Baby is drowsy, cozy and fair
Is the baby drowsy and fair because he hurt himself falling out of the tree?
Mother sits near in her rocking chair
Mother is sitting in a chair while her baby was falling out of a tree…hmm…maybe someone needs to call CPS on her!
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
Mother wasn’t near when the baby fell! Or when he was being put in a tree!
Wee little fingers, eyes are shut tight
Now sound asleep – until morning light
The baby will need his sleep to escape from his dangerous home life!
This song is pure nonsense and downright scary!!
