Hush, little baby, don’t say a word.
Papa’s gonna buy you a mockingbird
And if that mockingbird won’t sing,
Papa’s gonna buy you a diamond ring
And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Papa’s gonna buy you a looking glass
And if that looking glass gets broke,
Papa’s gonna buy you a billy goat
And if that billy goat won’t pull,
Papa’s gonna buy you a cart and bull
And if that cart and bull turn over,
Papa’s gonna buy you a dog named Rover
And if that dog named Rover won’t bark
Papa’s gonna buy you a horse and cart
And if that horse and cart fall down,
You’ll still be the sweetest little baby in town.
Tips for a low-budget music nursery:
- Record frames can be found cheap, and the records don’t have to be worth big bucks. Husbanks sifted through my parent’s old records and I went to antique stores to search for specific albums. Most were $3.00.
- If you want a 1960s mod look, head to IKEA. They will have inexpensive furniture providing great storage and clean lines. Oh, and they still offer several shag rugs.
- The changing table was a floor sample (it has scratches on it, but when you live with a cat you don’t worry) from the now defunct Austin USA Baby. Jerks.
- Use the instruments you already have for wall decorations and utilize the empty cases for storage: Free.
- Sheet music from college musical auditions gathering dust? Pick a song that means something to you and use it as decoration.
- And if you didn’t get the detail of the poster by the window – it’s two cats in a bike. Idea from Sarah. Love the look:
