ハッシュ・リトル・ベイビー/Hush little baby

「ハッシュ・リトル・ベイビー/Hush little baby」は、赤ちゃん泣かないで、ママやパパが何でも買ってあげるからとあやして寝付かせるマザーグースの子守唄。

歌詞 意味

小鳥を買って、もし小鳥が鳴かなくてもダイヤの指輪を買ってあげる
ダイヤの指輪が真鍮になったらママが鏡を買ってあげる
鏡がわれても雄ヤギを買ってあげる
もしヤギが逃げてもまた別のを買ってあげる
雄牛の荷車がひっくりかえっても、Roverという犬がほえなくても、荷馬車を、荷馬車が倒れてもあなたは私の宝物
この街一番の

Hush, little baby, don't say a word,
Mama's going to buy you a mockingbird.

And if that mockingbird don't sing,
Mama's going to buy you a diamond ring.

And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama's going to buy you a looking glass.

And if that looking glass gets broke,
Mama's going to buy you a billy goat.

And if that billy goat won't pull,
Mama's going to buy you a cart and bull.

And if that cart and bull turn over,
Mama's going to buy you a dog named Rover.

And if that dog named Rover won't bark,
Mama's going to buy you a horse and cart.

And if that horse and cart fall down,
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town.
