Hush, Little Baby

Hush, little baby, don't say a word.
We don't want papa to be disturbed

And if you feel like singing a song
Papa's gonna beat mama all night long

And if you cry or yell or scream
Papa's gonna haunt you in your dream

And if the boogie man's still around
Mama's gonna pretent all is sound

And if you try to safe the day
They'll hear you but they'll look away

And if you grow up anyway
Nobody will help you or come your way

And if you feel angry, sad or mad
They' ll make sure it was all your bad

And if you fail to be just fine
its better to end it now than in time.
