Yeah, we all know that song (or at least I do). I was noticing the version I know doesn't exactly rhyme, so I inserted a couple lines. The one I sing to my son goes like this:

Hush little baby, don't say a word
Daddy's gonna buy you a mocking bird

If that mocking bird don't sing
Daddy's gonna buy you a diamond ring

If that diamond ring turns brass
Daddy's gonna buy you a lookin' glass

If that lookin' glass gets broke
Daddy's gonna buy you a can of Coke

If that can of Coke goes flat
Daddy's gonna buy you a kitty cat

If that cat doesn't clean its coat
Daddy's gonna buy you a billy goat

If that billy goat don't pull
Daddy's gonna buy you a cart and bull

If that cart and bull turn over
Daddy's gonna buy you a dog named Rover

If that dog named Rover don't bark
Daddy's gonna buy you a wooden ark

If that ark won't go too far
Daddy's gonna buy you a candy bar

If that candy bar is tart
Daddy's gonna buy you a horse and cart

If that horse and cart break down
You'll still be the cutest little baby in town

The new things I added are bolded to make it rhyme better. Any thoughts? I'm not a huge fan of the soda and candy, but hey, it rhymes.

A lot of the lyrics you're listing, I've never heard. This could easily move over to the "silly games" section of the forum.

And if I see another that's even more cute,
I'll hit him with a shovel so the point will be moot.
And if his parents squeal and daddy goes to jail,
Daddy's gonna buy you a baleen whale.
And if that whale eats its weight in krill,
Daddy's gonna buy you a textile mill.
And if that mill makes inferior cloth,
Daddy's gonna buy you a death's-head moth.

...And so on.
