Mockingbird - Regina Spektor

Hush, little baby, don't say a word.
Papas going to buy you a mockingbird.
And if that mockingbird don't mock real well,
well then, Papas going to buy you a freedom bell.
Oh, and if that freedom bell don't ring,
Papas going to buy you a cubic zirconia ring.
And if that cubic zirconia ring don't shine.
you're going to give your papa a real hard time now ain't cha? ain't cha baby, ain't cha?.

And if that real hard time don't pass,
Papas going to get wrinkles all over his face.
And then he'll blend in with all the other Papas then.
Screw the whole mockingbird situation, we can't even afford a medical plan now, can we?
Oh baby now can we?

This song won't do.
Lets start this over,
lets start this over.

Hush little baby here comes the sandman
papas going to buy you a medical plan.
And if that medical plan don't cover your ass,
Papas going to buy you a pregnancy test.
And if that pregnancy test comes out positive,
then girl i don't know how the hell we're going to live.

Maybe on your bright ideas,
maybe on cigarette b_tts,
maybe on bubblegum wrappers,
maybe on penalty shots.

Hush little baby, don't you cry,
you know to you, your papa would never ever lie.
Oh hush while i sing to you this crude little lullaby.
And i'll get you all that sh_t one day
one by one by and by,
but in the meanwhine...

Hush little baby, don't say a word.
Papas going to buy you a mockingbird.
And if that mockingbird don't sing,
Papas going to buy you a diamond ring,
a real diamond.
No cubic nothing,
Like in the movies with that, whats her name?
Monroe, Marilyn,

A real, a real diamond, hush hush.
A real, a real diamond, hush hush.
A real, a real diamond, hush hush hush hush, hush.
A real, a real diamond, hush hush, hush, hush, hush, hush, hush, hush, hush, hush, hush.
