    Terrifying song. But I never thought about it being scary when I was little.

    Was that song taken from a part of the tornado sequence of “The Wizard of Oz” that ended up on the cutting-room floor?

    Very old nursery rhyme! 18th century England, when the women working in the fields tied their baby’s basket to the tree branches to rock them to sleep! Yes, I had to look it up!

    A traditional song about premeditated child endangerment.

    The late Shari Lewis used to have her characters alter the last verse: When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall, And if I were a baby… this is not the sort of thing I would want to hear at allllll.

    From Wonderopolis: The popular lullaby was first printed in 1765 in Mother Goose’s Melody. Some historians believe it was written in response to King James II’s conversion to Catholicism. He had a son in 1688 and many feared his heir would lead to a Catholic dynasty in England.

    According to this political theory, the lyrics of “Rock-A-Bye Baby” were a death wish directed at the infant son of King James II, hoping he would die and be replaced by a Protestant king.
