Song Description

Mother singing to baby about a fishing father who is on the sea.

Story Behind the Song

Song for my grandchildren

Broadjam Member Reviews

I love the motivational sentiment of this song of a mother singing to her baby about her beloved husband who is away at sea. These are the lullabies that shape our destiny, our character, our capacity to love as we grown and learn in this crazy mixed up world. We need more of this as a world community. Bravo!

Fresh start for this number! Beautiful voice and recorded correctly!

Lyrics

Ba Loo Loo my Lammie, ba loo loo,my dear.
Now ba loo loo ain minnie is here.
What ails my wee bairnie?
What ails it this nicht?
What ails my wee barinie? is barinie no richt?

Ba Loo Loo, my Lammie, now ba loo. my dear
Does wee lammie ken that its daddie's

Ye're rockin fu' sweetly on mommies warm knee,
but daddie's a rockin' upon the sauté sea.

Now hush a ba, Lammie, Now hush a, my dear;
Now hush a ba Lammie, ain minnie is here;
The wild wind is ravin; and mammie's heart's sair
The wild wind is ravin and ye'dinna care.
Sing ba loo, my Lammie, sing ba loo, my dear;
Sing ba loo, my Lammie an minnie is here
My wee barinie's dozin, it's dozen now fine, and
Oh! may its waukin be blyther than mine.
