Mockingbird Parody

In the late sixties, A group of comedians in Canada called "The Brothers-In-Law" came out with an album that had a song like this one, but it's lyrics were using foreign sports cars for the words. I just wrote my own lyrics with the cars being updated for the people who are more familiar with cars being driven in North America. I claim rights to the lyrics only. The punchline was included in the original BIL album!
_____________________________________________________________________________________
Hush little baby, don't say a word
Daddys gonna buy you a Thunderbird
And if that Thunderbird don't go
Daddys gonna buy you a Camaro

Now, if you're not a Camaro fan
Daddys gonna buy you a Chevy Van
And if something in the van goes clang, clang, clang
Well, daddys gonna buy you a new Mustang

And if that Mustang don't bring new friends
Daddys gonna buy you a Mercedes Benz
And if you're still not as happy as can be
Well, daddys gonna buy you a new Ferrari

And if that Ferrari doesn't come in black
Daddys gonna buy you a Cadillac
And if you're still not as happy as you can get
Daddys gonna buy you a new Corvette

And if a Corvette still isn't your choice
Daddys gonna buy you a new Rolls Royce
And if that Rolls still makes you balk
Well I give up baby. Ya can damn well walk!
