I know my mother’s told me a long time ago what she used to sing to me, but I can’t remember it now. I do know it wasn’t a children’s song but some old traditional Croatian tune.

Most traditional Croatian tunes are about some bloke getting madly in love with a lass, neglecting his field, cows, chicken and horse, losing it all, her not wanting him because he has no crop, cows, chicken or horse, and him throwing himself into the river, or something like that.

I didn’t sleep to well when I was a kid.

Do you remember if anything special was sung to you as a child? Perhaps your father did an Elvis impersonation routine, with be-bop-a-lula and the whole package, or your mom would head-bang, air-guitar and sing out loud….. It’s a long way to the top, if you wannna rock’n’roll. What do I know?

How about the parents here, do you sing to your kid(s)?

"Rock-a-bye baby
on the tree top,
when the wind blows
the cradle will rock,
I was that baby,
and what bothers me
is why mum and dad
shoved me up a tree!"

I think I need to invite you, JPunk and Pietro on a round of beers for the laughs you two brings. There should still be a fairly direct connection between Gothenburg and Edinburgh, right?

Just to see you two have a go at common thinking and turn things up-side-down laugh

beer beer

Yes, I remember singing a few things to my kids...but not usually the traditional lullabies. Couldn't remember them then, and still can't now. dunno Never did like the message in "Rock-a-bye baby", so I refused to sing that one!

Now that they're older I don't torture them by singing. tongue
