{Please Help}My mother would sing this to me when I was little and don't know where this lullaby originated does anyone know it. I sing it to my grandson and would really like to know where and who wrote it. Here it goes :The girl that I marry will have to be as soft and as sweet as a nursery, the girl I call my own, will wear satins and laces and smell of cologne and in her hair she'll wear gardenia and I'll be there, instead of flippin' I'll be sittin' next to her and she'll purr like a kitten, although I can't carry the girl that I marry" must be".
