ROCKING THE CRADLE (Rita MacNeil (m & l) ) Rita MacNeil She's rocking the cradle Her father, he made it He filled it with paper And an old rag doll. He's pulling the wagon His father, he made it He filled it with pine cones And the wheels go round. The Child in the stable He sleeps in a manger His father, he made it From golden straw. And here are the children Who face tomorrow The Child in the stable Will lead them on. (bridge) She's wearing a red dress Her mother, she made it She laced it with ribbons That all hang down. He's wearing a white coat His mother, she made it She filled it with goose down To keep him warm. The Child in the stable He's wrapped in a warm cloth His mother, she made it From a woven shawl. And they are the children Who face tomorrow The Child in the stable Will lead them on. And we are the people Who watch the children And He will teach us To love them all. NOTES: Lyrics as released by Rita MacNeil 1993 'Once Upon A Christmas'.
