Lyrics

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

If that mockingbird won't sing,
Papa's going to buy you a diamond ring.

If that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama's going to buy you a looking glass.

If that looking glass gets broke,
Papa's going to buy you a billy-goat.

And if that billy-goat runs away,
Mama's going to buy you another one today.

And all of these things your parents will do,
Because you're the best little child in the world.

Moving around like the Pop It crew is the way to the perfect dance for you!
Some primates live in trees and some live on the land and in trees. In this episode we meet KINDERZOO’s finest primates like our host Gabby the Gibbon, Deni the Douc Langur, Marty the Mandrill, Colin the Colobus Monkey and Mike the Proboscis Monkey. We also learn how Mike got his large nose in Kinderzoo Tales.
In this episode we go on safari in Africa and meet Polly the Springbok Antelope, Harry the Hippopotamus, Rhiannon the Rhinoceros and we see two of our favourites running around – Debra the Forgetful Zebra and Ryan the Lion. Our KInderzoo Tale this week is about how Gerry the Giraffe got his long neck.

This version goes through other things being given to the baby

Hush little baby don't say a word
Momma's gonna buy you a mockingbird.
And if that mockingbird don't sing
Momma's gonna buy you a diamond ring
And if that diamond ring turns brass
Momma's gonna buy you a looking glass
And if that looking glass gets broke.
Momma's gonna buy you a billy goat
And if that billy goat don't pull
Momma's gonna buy you a cart
And a bull and if that cart and bull turn over
Momma's gonna buy you a doggy named Rover
And if that doggy named Rover won't bark
Momma's gonna buy you a horse and a cart
And if that horse and cart fall down
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in the town!
