Dumbest song in the world.

"Hush, little baby, don't say a word. Mama's gonna buy you a mockingbird."

Seriously? A mockingbird?
Why in the world would someone want a mockingbird in their house?

THEN! If the mockingbird doesn't sing, which I would personally prefer, the baby would get a diamond ring!!???
That's quite the upgrade!
And why would a baby need a diamond ring? I didn't get one until I was 28!

The silly song goes on to offer the baby other useless items: a looking glass, a billy goat, a cart and bull, a horse and cart...

All that baby probably wants is a clean diaper and to be fed!

That's it!
I will not be singing that song to Alice.

This post cracked me up. That song has always baffled me too. Also, Humpty Dumpty. That's just a disturbing thing to sing to children. :)

Thank you so much for your prayers yesterday! May God bless you.

Rock a bye baby, in the tree top...
when the wind blows, the cradle will rock.
When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall... and down will come baby, cradle and all!!!

WAAAAY worse than the promise of useless gifts!!

I didn't say it was the worst baby song, just the dumbest. :)

I agree, rock-a-bye baby is probably the worst. Tragic, really.
