What's your favorite Baby Lullaby?

There is nothing like a mama singing a tune to soothe the littlest of babes.  When any of the babies would fuss, my favorite go-to song would be "Hush little baby, don't say a word...." except I didn't know all the words.  Then, suddenly, after I bought baby a "looking glass" and said glass got "broke", I'd buy baby a "billy goat".  And after said billly goat wasn't "fine", I was somehow buying baby a "porcupine" or "turpentine".  It was all downhill from there.  The goal was to keep the song going for as long as possible for the best soothing results.

Now, instead of making up strange-but-rhyming lyrics for baby tunes, I am sticking with the "ABC Song" as my go to baby lullaby.  But, it gets a little boring.  And, I have to say that my two older kids are getting tired of the ABCs too.  Help a mama out: What is your favorite baby lullaby to sing?  And, are the lyrics easy to remember?!
