Crow on the Cradle
The sheep`s in the meadow The cow`s in the corn Now is the time for a child to be born He`ll laugh at the moon And cry for the sun And if it`s a boy he`ll carry a gun Sang the crow on the cradle And if it should be that this baby`s a girl Never you mind if her hair doesn`t curl With rings on her fingers And bells on her toes And a bomber above her wherever she goes Sang the crow on the cradle The crow on the cradle The black and the white Somebody`s baby is born for a fight The crow on the cradle The white and the black Somebody`s baby is not coming back Sang the crow on the cradle Your mother and father will sweat and they`ll slave To build you a coffin and dig you a grave Hush-a-bye little one, never you weep For we`ve got a toy that can put you to sleep Sang the crow on the cradle Bring me my gun, and I`ll shoot that bird dead That`s what your mother and father once said The crow on the cradle, what can we do Ah, this is a thing that I`ll leave up to you Sang the crow on the cradle Sang the crow on the cradle
