A lullaby to remember NEW
by: Peter S. the Programmer

My Grandfather used to sing this to my Dad. My dad used to sing this to me when I was young. I'm 39 now and I sing this to my baby girl who was just born 3 weeks ago. One day my daughter will hopefully sing this to her child/children.

My Mother Sang this to Us NEW
by: Anonymous

I am from Pittsburgh and my mother sang this to us. It went like this:

Oh a Lu A Lu A Lu A Lu a Bye Bye
Do you want the Moon to play with
Or the stars to run away with
They'll come if you don't cry

Oh a Lu A Lu A Lu A Lu A Bye Bye
In your Mammy's arms I'll rest you
And soon you'll be a sleeping
Oh a Lu A Lu A Lu A Lu A Bye

Go lula lula lula lula bye bye , in your mommy and daddy’s loving arms.

So don’t you cry.....and don’t you sigh.... go lula lula lula lula bye

I will sing this to my kids every night when we have them.

Lula lula bye bye Lullaby NEW
by: SuzyB

Lula lula lula lula bye bye. Does you want the moon to play with, all the stars to run away with, they'll come if you don't cry. And its lula lula lula lula bye bye in your mammy's arms you're creeping and soon you'll be asleeping lula, lulua lula lula lula bye.
My Mum used to sing this to me as a baby (I'm 66 now) and my sister (59). We sang it to all our babies as well.
I've often wondered if it was a Deep South lullaby.
She followed it with "Oh my babby, my curly headed babby, your Daddy's in the cotton fields aworking for his coon, oo oon, oo oon." And then Golden Slumbers.
Not very PC now I know but its what I remember. As far as I am aware all my ancestors were English (traced back to 1776)and not American so where it came from I don't know.
