Hush little baby, don't say a word, papa's gonna buy you a mocking bird and if that mocking bird don't sing, papa's gonna buy a diamond sing.

If that diamond ring is brass papa's gonna buy a looking glass,and if that cooking glass should crack,papa's gonna buy you a jumping jack.

If that jumping jack won't hop, papa's gonna buy you a lollipop. when that lollipop is done, papa's gonna buy you another one.

If that lollipop's all eaten up,papa's gonna buy a real live pup, if that puppy dog won't bark, papa's gonna buy a meadow lark.

Hush little baby don't say a word, papa's gonna buy you a mocking bird, if that mocking bird don't sing papa's gonna buy you a diamond ring.

If that diamond ring is glass, papa's gonna buy you a cup of brass, and from that cup you'll drink your milk and papa's gonna dress you in the finest silk.

yes papa's gonna dress you in the finest silk, and mama's gonna raise you with honey and milk, so hush little baby sleep safe and sound, your still the sweetest little babe in town.

great vocal presentation
real cool acoustic guitar & piano
keep doin what you do

This is a good old traditional song, very nicely put together and produced. It is well sung and played. Perfect for getting baby to sleep. Nice subtle reverbs add to the calming atmosphere. The key change halfway through renews interest.
Nice 3 part harmonies sweeten the whole production. The song key is pitched perfectly for the singers.
A lovely rendition.

Soft, serene and dreamlike....which is perfect. The arrangement had a sense of direction that I really liked. The quality of voice is very good. A vibrato that is pleasant and energized, which works perfect for this style of song. The harmonies worked and added a nice additional layer to really hone in the lullaby idea.

Gentle version of a traditional lullaby, beautifully sung and well arranged. A soothing listen at a quiet time.

this is a beauty..

a lovely cover of the classic mockingbird. gentle sweet and a good rendition of this classic. nice vocals and backing vocals add something extra as the song builds.

Very pleasant version of the classic. Nice modulation adding the vocals as it goes. Instrumentation very well performed.
