MA CURLY-HEADED BABY (George H Clutsam 1926) as recorded by Maxine Sullivan January 28th 1942 New York Oh my baby, my curly-headed baby, We'll sit below the sky and sing a song to the moon, Mm-mm-mmm, mm-mm-mmm. Oh my baby, my curly-headed baby, Your daddy's in the cotton field, a-workin' for the food, Mm-mm-mmm, mm-mm-mmm. So la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la bye-bye, Does you want the moon to play with, Or the stars to run away with? They'll come if you don't cry! So la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la bye-bye, In the mammy's arms be creepin' And soon you'll be as-sleepin', La-la, la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la bye. Oh my baby, my curly-headed baby, I'll dance you fast asleep and love you so as I sing. Mm-mm-mmm, mm-mm-mmm. Oh my baby, my curly-headed baby, Just tuck your head like little bird below its mammy's wing, Mm-mm-mmm, mm-mm-mmm. So la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la bye-bye, Does you want the moon to play with, Or the stars to run away with? They'll come if you don't cry! So la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la bye-bye, In the mammy's arms be creepin' And soon you'll be as-sleepin', La-la, la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la bye. (Transcribed by Peter Akers - January 2014)
