life's unanswered question

Why do we sing "Rock a bye baby" to lull our little ones to sleep when the song is about putting your baby in a tree and letting the wind crash the cradle to the ground?

  • LMAO! No shit, I think that about that every time I sing it to my daughter. What a horrible song for a baby! Kinda like Ring Around the Rosie...it's about an effing disease, ack!

  • My ds has hated that song ever since I can remember. He understands falling out of a tree is not so relaxing!!
