Mom’s favorite lullaby to sing the babies...

A Bushel and a Peck.

I love you a bushel and a peck
A bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck

A hug around the neck and a barrel and a heap
A barrel and a heap and I'm talkin' in my sleep

About you, about you
'Cause I love you a bushel and a peck
