The Bairnies Are Crying

This song is by Malvina Reynolds.

The bairnies are cryin in the hall
And my singing can't be heard,
And I love the little children
But I also love the word,
Love the word.
And the babies have a right to cry
And I've a right to sing,
And you've a right to listen
So what's the answer?
Give the baby a nipple
And rock it or walk it
Don't sock it, amuse it
Don't abuse it,
Just make it shut up.
