Cradle of love – Música

Cradle of Love” is a song released in 1960 by Johnny Preston. The song spent 15 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at No. 7, while reaching No. 2 in the United Kingdom, No. 4 on Canada’s CHUM Hit Parade, No. 5 on Norway’s VG-lista, No. 7 in Australia, No. 15 in Japan, and No. 15 on Billboard’s Hot R&B Sides.
The lyrics of “Cradle of Love” quote several well known nursery rhymes with variations that tie them to the song’s title. The song’s chorus quotes Rock-a-bye Baby, the first verse quotes Jack Be Nimble, the second verse quotes Hey Diddle Diddle, and the third verse quotes Jack and Jill.
Using the name “Bobby Stevens”, Ray Pilgrim recorded a version of the song in 1960.

Johnny Preston Cradle of love

Well, rock-a-bye baby, in the treetop
When the wind blows the cradle will rock
So rock-a-bye baby, in the treetop
When the wind blows, mmm

Well, Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
Jack jumped over the candlestick
He jumped so high up above
He landed in the cradle of love

Well, rock-a-bye baby, in the treetop
When the wind blows the cradle will rock
So rock-a-bye baby, in the treetop
When the wind blows, mmm

Hi diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle
The cow jumped over the moon
And on the way down she met a turtle dove
Said “Let’s go rockin’ in the cradle of love”

Well, rock-a-bye baby, in the treetop
When the wind blows the cradle will rock
So rock-a-bye baby, in the treetop
When the wind blows, mmm

Jack and Jill went up the hill
To get a pail of water
Jack fell for Jill, gave her a shove
They fell into the cradle of love

Well, rock-a-bye baby, in the treetop
When the wind blows the cradle will rock
So rock-a-bye baby, in the treetop
When the wind blows, mmm
