Well mama go a tippy tippy toeing through the house
Gotta see what's the matter with the baby
It's been a bawlin' and a squallin' and a kickin' on the wall
Well I guess it's dropped its little bottle maybe
Well daddy come a running with the water and a rag
Gonna need another little diaper maybe
No need a hesitatin' or a wonderin' and a waitin'
I know what's the matter with baby we know what's the matter with the baby
Oh mama rock a baby daddy rock a baby too
It's a yawnin' and a gettin' sleepy maybe
So mama keep a rockin' daddy rock a little too and at last it's a sleepin' little baby

Well mommy tippy toeing daddy tippy toeing too gonna try to do a little sleepin' maybe
Whether it'll be a minute or an hour or two is depending entirely on the baby
Well I hear the clock a ringing just a dongin' and a dingin'
Daddy go and make a little money maybe
Mama sleep a little longer but remember while he's gone
Won't you please take care of the baby after all it's just a little baby
Oh mama rock a baby...
At last it's a sleepin' little baby at last it's a sleepin' little baby
