A LULLABY.



Hush ye, hush ye! honey, darlin',Hush ye, now, an' go to sleep;
Mammy's got to wash them dishes,
An' she's got this floor to sweep.

You must think I'm made uv money,
An's got nothin' else to do,
But to set here, in this rocker,
Like a lady, holdin' you.

Now you's gone to laughin' at me;
Little rascal! Hush! I say,
Mammy's got to wash them dishes,
She ain't got no time to play.

Ef you don't quit lookin' at me,
With that little sassy eye,
I declare, I'll tell your daddy,
An' tonight, he'll make you fly.

Now jest look how you's a-laughin'!
See you's bound to have your way,
I'll jest have to set an' hold you;
Won't git nothin' done today.
