Rock a Bye Baby

Rock a bye baby on 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.
Down on the ground the baby will wait
Though lets out no tear, is this her fate?
The cradle lay there, all battered and broken
This is a terrible waste and it is left unspoken

And now the rain falls, and baby is wet
A man walks by and he has no regret
A women comes by and holds the baby close
And puts baby back down, anxiety grows

She walks away, and baby now cries
Sooner or later, the poor baby dies
Your love and your care is way overdue
Baby died all because of you
