‘Rock A Bye Baby’ which is also known as ‘Hush a Bye Baby’ is both one of the popular English nursery rhymes and a lullaby which was found in the 18th century.
This popular rhyme originates from those days when women would work in the hop fields. They would tie their babies cradles to the branches of trees so the slow wind could rock them so that they could sleep.
Rock-a-bye Baby – Nursery Rhymes
Rock-a-bye 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.
