There are some new words to "Hush! There's a Baby..."! Loads of people love the song, but some would rather not say "shut" and "up" in the same breath, so there are new words so that you don't have to! HOORAY!
"There's a danger - that we'll wake this sleepy boy, he's such good news we jump with joy!" is the new couplet. I hope you like it, and that you can use it. In particular, it preserves the whole meaning of the song, which is that on the one hand you want to be quiet, because here's a sleeping baby, but on the other hand you want to jump around and make loads of noise because he's so brilliant. So brilliant that you just can't
shut up! Oops!
I was singing "Hush..." with some little children (3-5s) the other day, and realised it might be an idea to have a shorter version, without the repeats in the choruses - so here it is! Now available to download as MP3 files (full / backing) and a 1080p HD Video with subtitles - click here!
