My kids have been asking me to sing bedtime songs to them again. Here are the favorites:
Maddie: “Are You Lonesome Tonight” Elvis Presley–I used to sing that to her as a newborn when she would cry incessantly at night; the mockingbird song(I don’t know the name or all the words–“hush little baby don’t say a word…”)
JD: “Sweet Baby James” James Taylor–that was his newborn song; The original Winnie-The-Pooh theme song(pre-Disney?); his infant comfort song was “What A Friend We Have In Jesus”–southern gospel style
Annaliese: “You Are My Sunshine”; “Mona Lisa” Nat King Cole–I change the words to Annalisa. The song lyrics are so-so but it has a definite lullaby tune
All the kids love the old standard “The Way You Look Tonight” preferrably by Frank Sinatra.
What do you sing to your kids?
