Rock A Bye Baby Nursery Rhyme With Lyrics

Rock A Bye Baby Lyrics

Rockabye baby, on the treetops,
When the wind blows the cradle will rock
When the bough breaks the cradle will fall
And down will come baby, cradle and all
Baby is drowsing, cosy and fair
Mother sits near, in her rocking chair
Forward and back the cradle she swings
And though baby sleeps, he hears what she sings
From the high rooftops down to the sea
No one’s as dear as baby to me
Wee little fingers, eyes wide and bright
Now sound asleep until morning light

Rockabye baby, on the treetops,
When the wind blows the cradle will rock
When the bough breaks the cradle will fall
And down will come baby, cradle and all
Baby is drowsing, cosy and fair
Mother sits near, in her rocking chair
Forward and back the cradle she swings
And though baby sleeps, he hears what she sings
From the high rooftops down to the sea
No one’s as dear as baby to me
Wee little fingers, eyes wide and bright
Now sound asleep until morning light.

RockABye Baby Meaning

Rock A Bye Babies is Singing a nursery Rhyme is a great way to bond with little one. This very Popular rhyme probably originates from the days when women working in the hop fields, would tie their babies cradles to the branches of trees to allow the wind to rock them to sleep.

Another possibility is that a Pilgrim youth, a passenger on the Mayflower, wrote the rhyme after seeing the way Native American women rocked their babies in birchbark cradles. Although this supposition makes sense, there is absolutely no written reference to support it.
