momma gonna buy you a diamond ring lyrics
Scene: Trying to put a very sick CC down for a nap this morning. Neither one of us slept last night and she's screaming her little head off because she's overtired and can't breath - which made her even more pissed because she couldn't breath because she was overtired and screaming. And this went on until brain matter started leaking from my ears.Then I dared try to swipe at her nose with a tissue which caused her to howl like someone possessed. I'm pretty sure her first word was said just then. "Bitch", I think it was.Nursing is not working, neither is the pacifier (let's face it, it's hard to give a pacifier the love it deserves when your nose is plugged with all manners of ick) and I'm afraid a little demon is about to spring forth from my baby's head if I don't do something drastic. So I sing to her. Believe me, this is drastic.The problem: I never remember the words to this damn lullabye. The solution: Make it up as I go along."Hush little baby, don't say a word.Mama's gonna buy you a mockingbird.If that mockingbird don't sing,Mama's gonna buy you a diamond ring.If that diamond ring don't shine,Mama's gonna buy you a, uh, valentine.If that valentine's not.... uh, red?Mama's gonna buy you a... uh, puppy instead?If that puppy's fur is not, uh, soft...(Oh crap, what rhymes with soft? Soft, soft...)If that puppy's fur is not soft,Mama's gonna... buy herself some Zoloft."
Oh my! Much sympathy. andIf that diamond ring proves glassDaddy's gonna buy you a looking glassAnd if that looking glass gets brokeDaddy's gonna buy you a billy goat.I think, anyway.Yours is a lot better.
omg, that is my favorite song to make up words to. It's like an improv acting exercise.If that diamond ring should break,Mommas gonna buy you a chocolate cake.If that chocolate cake gets eat,Mommas going make you smell her feet.I like your ending best, though, lol.
Traditional - origin unknown.Hush little baby don't say a word, Mama's gonna buy you a mocking bird.If that mocking bird won't sing, Mama's gonna buy you a diamond ring.If that diamond ring turns brass, Mama's gonna buy you a looking glass.If that looking glass gets broke, Mama's gonna buy you a Billy goat.If that Billy goat gets bony, Mama's gonna buy you a Shetland pony.If that pony runs away, Mama's going to buy you another some day.
Hush little baby don't say a wordMomma's gonna buy you a mockingbird.And if that mockingbird don't singMomma's gonna buy you a diamond ringAnd if that diamond ring turns brassMomma's gonna buy you a looking glassAnd if that looking glass gets broke.Momma's gonna buy you a billy goatAnd if that billy goat don't pullMomma's gonna buy you a cartAnd a bull and if that cart and bull turn overMomma's gonna buy you a doggy named RoverAnd if that doggy named Rover won't barkMomma's gonna buy you a horse and a cartAnd if that horse and cart fall downYou'll still be the sweetest little baby in the town!
"if the diamon ring turns brass...momma's gonna buy you a looking glass...if that looking glass gets broke...momma's gonna buy you a billy goat...if that billy goat don't pull....momma's gonna buy you a cart and bull"..etc...
..if the diamond ring don't shine, mama's going to buy you a five and dime. if the five and dime go broke, mama's going to buy you an ox and yoke. if the ox and yoke break down, mam's going to buy you a funny clown. If the funny clown gets sad, mama's going to buy you an awesome pad. If the awesome pad burns down, you'll still be the (handsomest, adorablest, best, etc) baby around.
Howie Mandel sang the following lyrics in his stand up act in the 1980's in a little boy's voice; Hush little baby don't say a word Mommy's gonna buy you a mocking bird And if that mockingbird don't sing I'm gonna grab his feathers and rip his wing And if that mockingbird can't fly I'm gonna grab a needle and stick it in his eye And if that mockingbird can't see I'm gonna grab his leg and break his knee And if that mockingbird is dead I'm gonna buy you a parrot and name him "Fred"
Most of us have at least a basic understanding of the idea that jokes, slang terms, nursery rhymes, expressions and songs sometimes filter down on top of us like cultural volcanic ash. We don't know where "Liar, liar pants on fire" or "London Bridge is falling down" came from or why we know what they are, though this process in the 21st century is less connected to the distant past. A number of melodies and songs, like "Yankee Doodle," are genuine widely distributed folk songs, though they probably spread far more now by sound recordings than by one person hearing another person sing them. For the most part, we can't accurately trace songs backwards to figure out how they spread around or where they originated, but a handful of very well-known "folk songs" have left enough footprints that we can follow at least parts of their travels. One of those is the simple children's lullaby, "Hush, Little Baby," where papa is going to buy the baby a mockingbird, a looking glass, a diamond ring, a cart and bull, a billy goat, or a dog named Rover. We know almost nothing about what it did before about 1920, but since 1937 it has left all sorts of tracks.
(Ha)It's funnyI remember back one year when daddy had no moneyMommy wrapped the Christmas presents upAnd stuck 'em under the tree and said some of 'em were from me'Cause daddy couldn't buy 'emI'll never forget that Christmas I sat up the whole night crying'Cause daddy felt like a bum, see daddy had a jobBut his job was to keep the food on the table for you and momAnd at the time every house that we lived inEither kept getting broken into and robbedOr shot up on the block and your mom was saving money for you in a jarTryna start a piggy bank for you so you could go to collegeAlmost had a thousand dollars 'til someone broke in and stole itAnd I know it hurt so bad it broke your mamma's heartAnd it seemed like everything was just startin' to fall apartMom and dad was arguin' a lot so momma moved backOn the Chalmers in the flat one bedroom apartmentAnd dad moved back to the other side of 8 Mile on NovaraAnd that's when daddy went to California with his CD and met Dr. DreAnd flew you and momma out to see meBut daddy had to work, you and momma had to leave meThen you started seeing daddy on the T.V. and momma didn't like itAnd you and Lainnie were too young to understand itPapa was a rollin' stone, momma developed a habitAnd it all happened too fast for either one of us to grab itI'm just sorry you were there and had to witness it first hand'Cause all I ever wanted to do was just make you proudNow I'm sitting in this empty house, just reminiscingLookin' at your baby pictures, it just trips me outTo see how much you both have grown, it's almost like you're sisters nowWow, I guess you pretty much are and daddy's still hereLainnie I'm talkin' to you too, daddy's still hereI like the sound of that, yeahIt's got a ring to it don't it?Shh, mama's only gone for the moment
And if you ask me toDaddy's gonna buy you a mockingbirdI'mma give you the worldI'mma buy a diamond ring for youI'mma sing for youI'll do anything for you to see you smileAnd if that mockingbird don't sing and that ring don't shineI'mma break that birdie's neckI'll go back to the jeweler who sold it to yaAnd make him eat every carat don't fuck with dad (ha ha) 041b061a72
