Rock-a-bye baby

For some reason, this was a tough one. It seems that Russian words are longer in general, so it was hard to fit them into one syllable rhymes.
Rock-a-bye baby, in the treetop,
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock,
When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall,
And down will come baby, cradle and all.

Баю-бай, спи, малыш, засыпай
Ветер кроватку тихо качай.
Ветер подул сильней с высоты,
Кроватка упала, а с ней я и ты.
