Lyrics

Ain’t got no use For your red rocking chair I ain’t got no sugar baby now I ain’t got no honey baby now Who’ll rock the cradle Who’ll sing this song Who’ll rock cradle when I’m gone Who’ll rock cradle when I’m gone It’s I’ll rock the cradle I’ll sing this song It’s I’ll rock the cradle when you’re gone It’s I’ll rock the cradle when you’re gone It’s all I can do It’s all I can say Gonna send you to your momma next payday Gonna send you to your momma next payday It’s all I can do It’s all I can say I can’t get along this a way I can’t get along this a way
