All the Pretty Little Horses

Hush-a-bye
Don't you cry
Go to sleep my little ba-by;
When you wake,
you shall have,
all the pretty little horses.
Dapples and Greys,
Pintos and Bays,
Coach and six little horses.
Hush-a-bye
Don't you cry
Go to sleep my little baby
When you wake,
you shall have,
all the pretty little horses.
Way down yonder
in the meadow
poor little baby cries mama
birds and butterflies
flutter 'round his eyes
poor little baby cries mama
Hush-a-bye
Don't you cry
Go to sleep my little ba-by;
When you wake,
you shall have,
all the pretty little horses.


(This Lullaby, was originally written by an African American slave, who could not take care of her baby, because she was too busy taking care of her master's child, so she would sing this song to her master's child)
