Match the song title with its lyric:

1. __________________________________, on the treetop, When the wind blows the cradle will rock. This song was first printed in the 1700s. It was common practice for mothers in the 1700s to tie their baby's cradle up to a tree branch in the back garden as they worked, in hopes of the wind lulling the infant to sleep.

2. ___________________________________, don't say a word, Papa's going to buy you a Mockingbird. The beginning of this american folk song is unknown. But this beautiful melody has lured many a child to sleep.

3. Hush-a bye, don't you cry, go to sleepy little baby, When you wake you shall have ________________________________________________. This song is of unknown origin, but thought to be written in America.

5. ________________________________________________________, How I wonder what you are, Up above the world so high, like a diamond in the sky. This song was a poem set to music in the 1800s. It uses the same melody as the ABC song and Baa, Baa, Black Sheep.

6. ________________________________________ have you any wool? Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full. This is perhaps the one of the oldest passed down lullabies. Where did this song originally come from? Some believe that the song sang of a medieval tax on wool. The earliest written record of the song was from the mid 1700s. The words have remained largely the same since that time.
