Hush, Little Baby

Can I go to sleep now?
This world’s just too absurd.
Can I go to sleep now?

Because I’m tired, so tired.
Hush, little baby, don’t say a word.
And I’m tired, so tired –

But I’m a baby no longer –
Mama didn’t buy me that mockingbird
And I’m a baby no longer.

Hush, little baby, I won’t say a word –
Now you’re grown, sing for me,
Be your own mockingbird.
