What'll I do with baby-o

 

What'll I do with baby-o
What'll I do with baby-o
What'll I do with baby-o
If she/he won't go to sleepy-o

Wrap her/him up in calico,
Wrap her/him up in calico,
Wrap her/him up in calico,
And send her/him to her/his daddy-o.

Wrap her/him up in a table cloth,
Wrap her/him up in a table cloth,
Wrap her/him up in a table cloth,
And toss her/him up in the old hay loft.

Send her/him east and send her/him west,
Send her/him east and send her/him west,
Send her/him east and send her/him west,
Send her/him up the old craw's nest.

Send her/him north and send her/him south
Send her/him north and send her/him south
Send her/him north and send her/him south
And put a little moonshine in her/his mouth.

 

(If singing this lullaby you might find it fun to use the tune to 'What will we do with the drunken sailor)
