tell me a tale of kings and queens, tell me of peter pan

by Samantha Boechler

Tell me a tale of Kings and Queens...
Tell me of Peter Pan...
Tell me of when you were a boy, of when I shall be a man
I like to lay here in the dark...listening to all you say.
(now I draw a blank on the last line)

Next Verse
Tell me a tale of kings and queens...
tell me of snow white too...
tell of when you were a girl...of when i shall be like you
I like to lay here in the dark, listening to all you say

next verse
Tell me a tale of Kings and Queens,
: tell me of Peter Pan,
: tell me of when you were a boy,and of when I shall be a man,
: I want to stay here in the dark listening to all your say,
: I feel so lonesome by myself and I wish you let me stay...

its important to me because my mother played it for me while i was in her stomach and while i was a child and now i am pregnant and would like to find it for my unborn child

please email me if you know the name or can find it online...

The music you are looking for is The Rock -a-Bye collection ny Tonya Goodman. It included Teeter Totter, Lavander's Blue and a lot of other wonderful songs. I bought it for my oldest in 1991 and it is still my favorite set of lullabyes

update I think
by: Mike

My wife thinks the singer is Joanie Bartels. She has a bunch of songs I remember and the voice sounds right but the song on this post is not listed anywhere for her. You can hear them on Amazon and Itunes.

I still need to find that tape.

love this tune
by: Mike

My family has this tape somewhere. My kids were very young when we got it, they are now 19, 20 and 22.
I came across this site looking for the name of the song. As I recall, it was a 2 tape set and was dark purple in color. The one we have is the same song as mentioned here that you can get on Amazon but not the same singer. The Amazon one, although decent is no where near as soothing as the version we have. The lady's voice is very sweet on ours. I will save this link and when I find the tape (which I will find), I will put it on Youtube. I could have grandkids in the next 5 years so need to find it. :-) Annoying to me is that I got it out a couple years ago so I could find it in CD form for my niece. I wasn't able to find the correct one anywhere.

Same song different version
by: Anonymous

I'm also searching for the song that goes "tell me a tale of kings and queens, tell me of Peter Pan, tell me of when you were a boy of when I shall be a man" The one by Pamela ballingham was the closest I could find but I'm really looking for the version of the one I had on cassette almost 20 years ago, had all the same lyrics but added a softly spoken story inbetween verses, that same tape also had all through the night and I think a song called vitamin c and maybe a willy wonka song? I can't remember them all but I would love to find original cassette for my son. Might be a long shot but worth a try. If anyone else happens to recall this tape from their child hood and can remember anything else about it it would be greatly appreciated!!

Tell me a tale of queens & kings

I used to sing this to my son. It was his favorite lullaby of all times. I loaned my CD to my sister in law and never got it back. I'm looking for it too.
