Cradle Of Love - Johnny Preston

Cradle Of Love

Johnny Preston

(Jack Fautheree - Wayne Gray, MERCURY 71598, 1960)

Well, rock-a-bye baby in the treetop
When the wind blows, the cradles will rock
So, rock-a-bye baby in the treetop
When the wind blows, mmm...

Well, Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
Jack jumped over the candlestick
He jumped so high up above
He landed in the cradle of love


Hi diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle
The cow jumped over the moon
And on the way down she met a turtle dove
Said "Let's go rockin' in the cradle of love"


Jack and Jill went up the hill
To get a pail of water
Jack fell for Jill, gave her a shove
They fell into the cradle of love
