SWING ME A LULLABY Don Raye / Hughie Prince / Waring as rec by Connee Boswell w Bob Crosby & his Orch June 9th 1936 "Rockabye my baby", my momma sings to me, "In a treetop, going sleepy bye." But I'd rather have a hot band to rock my cradle And swing me a lullaby! "Bye bye baby buddy" is such a silly song, And I know the bogeyman's a lie! I know a better way to sleep Than just by countin' sheep, Oh, swing me a lullaby! "Little fishy in the brook, Poppa catch 'im by the hook" Puts me to sleep quick enough, But for my lullaby, Give me a "Hi-de-hi!" (scat) and stuff! Oh, guess my mom will always sing me lullabies, But I wish she'd really learn to try; Instead of "Mighty lak' a rose", Sing me "Honeysuckle rose" And swing me a lullaby! Guess my mom will always sing me lullabies, But I wish she'd really learn to try; Instead of "Mighty lak' a rose", Sing me "Honeysuckle rose" And swing, Oh momma, swing me a lullaby!
