Papa is gonna buy you a Billy Goat

Walking with Nicole in pasos y pedales (The Avenida de las Americas on Sunday mornings becomes a pedestrian street) I took this picture of a boy who gives goat rides.
It immediatly reminded me of the lullaby I loved singing to her.

There are three pasos y pedales (steps and bike pedal), that I know of, in the city on Sundays (in zone 14, 11 and 2) and they are deffinetly and oasis in the city a beatiful opportunity to hang out with the kids.

Hush little baby, don't say a word,
Papa's gonna buy you a mockingbird.

And if that mockingbird won't sing,
Papa's gonna buy you a diamond ring.

And if that diamond ring turns to brass,
Papa's gonna buy you a looking glass.

And if that looking glass gets broke,
Papa's gonna buy you a billy goat.

And if that billy goat won't pull,
Papa's gonna buy you a cart and bull.

And if that cart and bull turn over,
Papa's gonna buy you a dog named Rover.

And if that dog named Rover won't bark,
Papa's gonna buy you a horse and cart.

And if that horse and cart fall down,
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town!
