I was just sitting here singing to Emily and started wondering what songs you all sing to your babies??? BTW, in my family kids are "babies" until they are grown. I sing two songs to Emily all the time. One is called "Baby Close Your Eyes" and I sang that one to her during my pregnancy so when she was a brand new baby it would soothe her immediately. Now I've found one called "Bring It On Home" and she loves it. She smiles and "sings" along. It's the most wonderful, precious, perfect thing I've ever experienced! If you have time, include the lyrics because I would love to read them.

Baby Close Your Eyes

Sun is creeping down
Behind the hill
Everything is calm
Everything is still

So baby close your eyes
And rest your weary mind
Let me hold you close I'll sing you this lullaby

Let your worries go
You fall asleep
Think of nothing more
Memories will keep

Your dreams will turn to gold
And you will wake and find
That you'll hold a smile all day from this lullaby

Maybe somewhere in the silence
You will wake and you're alone
Just call out and I'll be there

Even when I'm gone
Each day will end
So I'll say 'goodnight'
'Til we meet again

Now baby close your eyes
And rest your weary mind
I'll let you know the joy you bring
you this lullaby


"Bring It On Home"

You got someone here wants to make alright
Someone who loves you more than life right here
You got willing arms that'll hold you tight
A hand to lead you on through the night right here
I know your heart can get all tangled up inside
But don't you keep it to yourself

When your long day is over
And you can barley drag your feet
The weight of the world is on your shoulders
I know what you need
Bring it on home to me

You know i know you like the back of my hand
But did you know I'm gonna do all that I can right here
I'm gonna lie with you till you fall asleep
When the morning comes I'm still gonna be right here
So take your worries and just drop them at the door
Baby leave it all behind

Baby let me be you safe harbor
Don't let the water come and carry you away

You got someone here wants to make it alright
Someone who loves you more than life right here

For abby I sing: You are so wonderful, wonderful you are so great! (just that over and over)

And to Adwyn I sing: "she's not as pretty as you she's not as pretty as you no doubt about it she's not as pretty as you!"

But to all we sing "you are my sunshine, my only sunshine!"

'It's me again, Margaret...
Hello, is this Margaret?
Margaret, I know it's you, Margaret
Are you naked?

And when I get out, Margaret
I'm going to come over there with an egg beater
And a live chicken, and some peach preserves!
We'll have a good old time, Marga

"I see the moon the moon sees me, down thru the leaves of the old oak tree, God bless the moon and God bless me and God bless the ones I love. I believe the Lord above created you for me to love, he picked you out from all the rest, because he knew I could love you the best!"

My Mom sang it to me and my sister and it made us feel so special, so now I sing it to all my kids even those that I foster. But to them I especially sing a silly one that goes like this

"I love you Timothy oh yes I do, I love you Timothy and I'll be true, when you're away from me I'm blue, oh Timothy I love you" - I just have had newborns to love so far in my fostering years so they don't know the words, but somehow it makes me feel like they know that I love them and will miss them when they aren't with me. I sing it to my own kids too, but they love to sing it to their special brother and sister too to soothe them and that is the sweetest thing to see a 4yr old and 6 yr old do!!

My favorite Lullaby for Bethany was "All through the night". I first heard the instrumental version, when I had Nicholas, but didn't learn the words 'til I had Bethany.
A song I made up for Beth when she was real little was,

"Bethany Boo,
Bethany Boo,
little, little Bethany Boo,
Bethany Boo,
Mommy loves YOU!
Little, Little Bethany boo!"

She still smiles when I sing it to her now (at 2yrs). She evens bobs her head back and forth with the tune!!

For my oldest I always sang 'All the pretty little ponies'

Hush a bye
Don't you cry
Go to sleep little baby
For when you wake
We;ll have cake
And all the pretty little ponies

Blacks and bays
Sorrels and greys
All the pretty little ponies

Now for my 2yr old, I made up a song when she was an infant and nursing. She had bad colic and I read that to help soothe, some babies like a monotone repetitious song. I sing to her...

Night night baby
Mamas baby
night night baby
baby girl

Oh now its night night
time to be sleeping
night night my baby
baby girl

Oh how I love you
You're my little baby
Night night little baby
baby girl

I still sing her to sleep with that song every night we snuggle for a bit and I sing to her wub.gif She loves that song and even likes it when my 7yr old sings it for her.

To my daughter I sang "You are my Sunshine" too! She changed the words a tad when she learned to sing with me, "You are my Shunshine". I also loved singing "The Ballad of Curtis Loew" to her....weird, huh?

To my son, I sang "Sweet Baby James", one of my favs:

There is a young cowboy he lives on the range
His horse and his cattle are his only companions
He works in the saddle and he sleeps in the canyons
Waiting for summer, his pastures to change

And as the moon rises he sits by his fire
Thinking about women and glasses of beer
And closing his eyes as the doggies retire
He sings out a song which is soft but it’s clear
As if maybe someone could hear

(chorus)
Goodnight you moonlight ladies
Rockabye sweet baby james
Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose
Won’t you let me go down in my dreams
And rockabye sweet baby james

Now the first of december was covered with snow
And so was the turnpike from stockbridge to boston
Lord, the berkshires seemed dream-like on account of that frosting
With ten miles behind me and ten thousand more to go

There’s a song that they sing when they take to the highway
A song that they sing when they take to the sea
A song that they sing of their home in the sky
Maybe you can believe it if it helps you to sleep
But singing works just fine for me

- chorus -

I have videos of my granddaughter Victoria singing Amazing Grace, when she was 4. She is 8 now, she is a crooner. Her voice is so sweet.

My grandchildren also like, Walk in the garden, How great thou art, Wondefrful World.

She sings " Whoever's in New England by Reba Mcyntire really good.

And she sings along with Brooks and Dunn songs.

i would just sing what ever came to mind! Sometimes I make up songs. I would always have children songs playing in the car, even when they were an infant! I felt like it would help their learning. My daughter learned to count, her ABC's and other things with the help of music.

One of the gift's that I got my granddaughter for her first birthday was a duck that sings "You are my Sunshine" so I sing that to her. We also sing the ABC song, Barney's "I love You", and some other songs that she likes from shows.

When my daughters were young I would Sing "Bingo", "One, Two, Buckle My Shoe", I'm A Little Teapot", Itsy Bitsy Sider", and "Knick Knack Paddy Whack". I only sang to them when no one was around. By the time they were around 5 I stopped singing to them because I didn't want to embarrass them or myself. tongue.gif

I sing "Jesus Loves Me" to Aubrey a lot. And to hear her sweet precious cooing to sing along is such a wonderful sound. I also sing the Barney song, I love you, you love me, and Kum by ya My Lord. When we're playing then we do I'm a little tea pot and Itsy bitsy spider, and The Wheels on the bus. She loves having her legs and feet messed with when we do Wheels on the bus. It's always a sure way to quiet her when she's fussy too.

We actually came up with a couple of songs on our own and sing them to our kids. Just little songs that mean nothing, but they truly enjoy. My oldest even came up with his own song before he could talk and would sing it back to us.

When Me & Sis were little I always remember how
my Mom would sing the " I Hate Bosco " song to us...
(yes my Mom is a bit weird...)

I hate Bosco,
and Bosco hates me,
Mommy puts it in my milk
and tries to poison me...
One day I fooled Mommy
and put it in her tea,
No there is no Mommy
to try and poison me...

Cole is 12 yrs old now, but when he was a little guy he fell in love with "The Lion King" he could barely talk & walk when it came out, but every saturday & sunday morning for 2 months, he would scoot on his bottom down the stairs saying "Cat Movie".
So the song that I sang then was "I just can't wait to be King". He loved it. I would read a story to him every night at bedtime & usually would sing him a song too. Some of his favorites were:
Rockabye Baby
You are my sunshine
The little drummer boy & Away in a manager - at Christmas Time
Can you feel the love tonight - from Disney's The Lion King
A whole new world - from Disney's Aladdin
You'll be in my heart - from Disney's Tarzan
Reflection - from Disney's Mulan
Someday - from Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame
I sing all the time anyway to anyone who will listen & so both my son's were kinda stuck with the singing stuff.
Cole loves all Disney movie's & still does on saturday we are going down to Orlando & Walt Disney World for a week long vacation. He is so excited he can hardly sleep I hope he enjoys it. My husband & I will too, but Disney World just wears us out.
Hope that wasn't to many. Guess I got carried away or the memories were so fond that I just didn't want to stop. biggrin.gif

My favorite lullabys have been:
"My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean"

and

"Fallen Embers" by Enya

Once, as my heart remembers,
all the stars were fallen embers.
Once, when night seemed forever
I was with you.

Once, in the care of morning
in the air was all belonging.
Once, when that day was dawning.
I was with you.

How far we are from morning.
How far are we
and the stars shining through the darkness,
falling in the air.

Once, as the night was leaving
into us our dreams were weaving.
Once, all dreams were worth keeping.
I was with you.

Once, when our hearts were singing,
I was with you.
Ask me why I homeschool. . .

My oldest Ches like Merle Haggard (That's the Way love goes), George Strait (You look so good in love, Amarillo by morning), Keith Whitley (Tell Chesni I love her), Westlife (Swear it again). She has like them since she was born and she still asks to have them sung to her. She prefers Daddy sing them to her.

My boy, Leej, never took a pacifier and never cared much for songs or lullabies, but he loves stories. Anything that starts with "Once upon a time, "

My baby baby, Chlo, like the eency weensy spider. It is like magic. When we were in the hospital it was the only thing that would calm her down, but she only wants momma to sing it to her. I won't ever forget her momma singing that to her. She likes to listen to the Enya's CD as well. I do not know the name of the song but it is #3 on the cd.

Carrie Underwood... Before He Cheats

The boys are 20 and 13. Don't want them to think that is a good idea... EVER!!!

"Before He Cheats"

Right now he's probably slow dancing with a bleach blonde tramp,
and she's probably getting frisky...
right now, he's probably buying her some fruity little drink cause she can't shoot whiskey...

Right now, he's probably up behind her with a pool-stick, showing her how to shoot a combo...

And he don't know...

That I dug my key into the side of his pretty little suped up 4 wheel drive,
carved my name into his leather seat...
I took a Louisville slugger to both head lights,
slashed a hole in all 4 tires...

And maybe next time he'll think before he cheats.

Right now, she's probably up singing some
white-trash version of Shania karoke..
Right now, she's probably saying "I'm drunk"
and he's a thinking that he's gonna get lucky,
Right now, he's probably dabbing on 3 dollars worth of that bathroom polo...
And he don't know...

That I dug my key into the side of his pretty little suped up 4 wheel drive,
carved my name into his leather seat,
I took a Louisville slugger to both head lights,
slashed a hole in all 4 tires...

And maybe next time he'll think before he cheats.

I might saved a little trouble for the next girl,
Cause the next time that he cheats...

Oh, you know it won't be on me!

Ohh... not on me...
Cause I dug my key into the side of his pretty little suped up 4 wheel drive,
carved my name into his leather seat...
I took a Louisville slugger to both head lights,
slashed a hole in all 4 tires...

Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats.

Ohh.. Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats...

Ohh... before he cheats...

I always hummed "Baby of mine" by Bette Midler from Beaches. I love it and it always soothed them. That and "You are my sunshine". smile.gif



I sing Baby Mine too. I danced with my oldest nephew to that song at my wedding. wub.gif

The most beautiful album of lullabys I ever found was given to me as a gift when my daughter was small. I think it's a must-have for parents with babies. It's just beautiful. Here's a link to the Amazon page, where you can listen to samples:

http://www.amazon.co...-5442509?n=5174

One of my favorites was the "Appalachian Lullaby"

"Well I love my baby sweet and fair
Got the sky in your eyes
The sun in your hair
I rock you to sleep
most every night
And I sing you this song while I hold you tight:

Sleep my baby
Nestled in your momma's arms.
While your father above
cradles you in his love
Safe and warm
Sleep my baby
Nestled in your mamma's arms....
Sleep my baby,
The angels keep you from harm."


Another favorite from that album was "Wings":

If I could, I would give you wings
To carry you out of the storm
They'd flutter soft around you and
You'd be safe and warm.

Wings, little wings--
Wings in the blink of an eye!
Soon your little wings will be
Big enough to fly.

Wow, what a nostalgia trip!

But really, it's a great album for parents of little ones. Check it out! I couldn't have loved it more to sing to mine when they were small. wub.gif

And DUH...I forgot to mention the name of the album..."A Child's Gift of Lullabys"

Trust me, you'll love it!

I sing "O Holy Night" All year long

And

Peas, Peas (substituted for Beans)
good for your heart,
the more you eat
the more you're smart!

I sang "One Tin Soldier" to both of my girls - I think it was the first song that I ever learned all the words to. I also used to sing "My Brown Eyed Girl" to both of them.
