Versione class consciousness della classica lullaby settecentesca.
Nella raccolta "Working-Class Heroes: A History of Struggle in Song", a cura di Mat Callahan e Yvonne Moore (PM Press/Free Dirt Records, 2019)

Rock-a-bye baby, on the tree top
When you grow up, you'll work in a shop
When you get married, your wife will work, too
So that the rich will have nothing to do.

Hush-a-by baby, on the tree top
When you grow old, your paycheck will stop
After you've spent the little you save,
First to the poorhouse, then to the grave.
