lyrics to The Hand That Rocks The Cradle / Glen Campbell

Glen Campbell
Hand That Rocks The Cradle

He got here red and wrinkled, scared and crying
and she took him up and held him to her breast
and he sure was glad to get what mama offered
and he went to sleep and put his fears to rest
There ought to be a hall of fame for mamas
Creation's most unique and precious pearl
And Heaven help us always to remember
That the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world
She taught him all the attributes of greatness
That she knew he couldn't learn away from home
And by the time she wore the cover off her bible
Her hair was gray and her little man was gone
There ought to be a hall of fame for mamas
Creation's most unique and precious pearl
And Heaven help us always to remember
That the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world

He got here red and wrinkled, scared and crying
She took him up and held him to her breast
He sure was glad to get what mama offered
Then he went to sleep and put his fears to rest

It didn't seem to matter what he needed
He could always count on mama to supply (&)
Regardless of the sleep she might be losing
He always found a twinkle in her eye

There ought to be a hall of fame for mamas
Creation's most unique and precious pearl
Heaven help us always to remember
That the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world

She taught him all the attributes of greatness
That she knew he couldn't learn away from home
And by the time she wore the cover off her Bible
Her hair was gray and her little man was gone

There ought to be a hall of fame for mamas
Creation's most unique and precious pearl
And Heaven help us always to remember
That the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world

Yes the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world

Then she took him up and held him to her breast
And he sure was glad to get what mama offered
Then he went to sleep and put his fears to rest

And regardless of the sleep she might be losin'
He always found a twinkle in her eye
There ought to be a hall of fame for mamas

She taught him all the attributes of greatness

And by the time she wore the cover off her bible
Her hair was gray and her little man was gone
There ought to be a hall of fame for mamas
Creation's most unique and precious pearls
And heaven help us always to remember
That the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world
Yes, the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world

SONG MEANING / BACKGROUND INFO
What does The Hand That Rocks The Cradle mean?

... update background information ...

Provided courtesty of songfacts.com:
-In the 1950s and 1960s, Campbell became known as one of the best session musicians in the industry. However, he jumped at the chance to join the Beach Boys temporarily in 1964 and 1965 after Brian Wilson became ill. Campbell said the money was a lot more than he was making in the studios, but it was odd at first to sing the high harmonies that the Beach Boys were noted for. He believes that the experience raised his vocal range about a tone and a half. In 1967, after modest success as a solo artist, Campbell had his first hit record with "<a href="http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=7229">Gentle On My Mind</a>." He followed it up later that year with "<a href="http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=1958">By the Time I Get to Phoenix</a>." Jimmy Webb wrote another Campbell standard, "Wichita Lineman," after being inspired by seeing a lone telephone pole worker out on the Kansas-Oklahoma border.
