Baby's teething, oh my, oh my!

Rock-a-bye-baby, crying out loud

Turn up the TV to block out the sound

Of Mum and the baby as she rocks to and fro

I'd like to move out but there's nowhere to go.

She's teething you see and these are the worst

Where the eyes meet the teeth, I remember the first

That she cut and the nights that I lost as she rocked

To and fro and her face grimaced and locked

Like a pike that's latched on to the hum

And the strum of lullabies from mum

And the clock ticking on, for goodness sake

A night of drama, now we're all awake.

Rock-a-bye-baby, fast asleep

Through the curtains the sun will seep

To start a new day but today will keep

Cause now the whole house is fast asleep.
