Lyrics:

 ^ Hush, hush, little baby, don't you cry x2
Daddy works in a rock and roll band, he's a drummer man
Plays all night in a crummy dive down on Lincoln Street
Living in a rat trap, hassle and a-hustle with the welfare plan
Lord, it's tough when you're living with a dream of a drummer man

Hush, hush, little baby, don't you cry, don't you know, little baby, by and by
Daddy's really going to make it big, like Ringo done
Be a Hollywood cat and live up in the canyon where the sun shines
If we can just hold on till we find that once in a lifetime plan
Oh, Lord, it hurts to be living with a dream of a drummer man

He's a drummer man, that's what he is and I love him so and I clean his jeans
And I dry his tears, when the breaks don't come and it ain't no fun
He's my man and he's a real good drummer, it's a bummer
When you've got to play the nickel and the dime kind of job that don't pay enough
To buy a can of beans, chicken bone's clean

Hush, hush, little baby, don't you cry x2
Daddy works in a rock and roll band, he's a drummer man
He beats out time, drinks a lot of bad wine down on Lincoln Street

One day daddy's going to be a star but in the meantime, oh Lord, it's tough
To be living with a dream of a drummer man
Child, it's tough but your daddy is a dream of a drummer man
