Bye-Lo, Sweet Baby
Bye-lo, sweet baby, don't say a word,
Daddy's gonna buy you a mockingbird.
If that mockingbird don'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.
If that looking glass gets broke,
Daddy's gonna buy you a billy goat.
If that billy goat runs away,
Daddy's gonna whip you every day.
