American Lullaby by Gladys Rich


Hush-a-bye you sweet little baby
(The Youngest) "you mean little girl."
(Me) "of course"
Hush-a-bye you sweet little girl, and close those pretty blue eyes
(The Youngest) "you mean green eyes"
(Me) "yes ma'am"
Hush-a-bye you sweet little girl, and close those pretty green eyes.
Mother has gone to her weekly bridge party to get her wee girl the prize.
Nursie will turn the radio on
so you can hear a sleepytime song
sung by a lady whose poor heart must long for a baby
(The Youngest) "For a GIRL"
For a GIRL like you.
(The Youngest) "Like ME"
