Karoo, Karoo

A Lullaby that my mom sang to me when I was a baby.
I sang to my daughters.  My daughters to my grandchildren.
I hope my great grandchildren will hear it someday, too.
Listen to it here --  accompanied by photos of my sleepy daughters, and my 10 sleepy grandchildren!

Lovely! The tune sounds familiar but I don't recall the words. I also sang a lot to my babies and they loved it for years. Well except for Zak, he used to tell me to shut up! Little brat! Gameboys favourite was hush little baby! The girls loved the song about rainbows.

What beautiful babies.

Kim said...

Sweet. I always sang "Winkin, Blinkin and Nod" and, of all things, Paul Simon's "St. Judy's Comet". I don't remember my mother ever singing to me.

The tune sounded familiar. Now I'll be humming it all day. You have a lovely voice and lovely babies!

Oh how sweet...have never heard the song, but loved it. You have a great voice (it is you isn't it?)Nothing like a cute baby sleeping. How proud you must be of your lovely family. My singing to the kids consisted of "Twinkle little Star", "Itsy Bitsy spider" and "Rockabye Baby"

Ah-h-h-h! This one word sums it up.

Oh, your comments at my place are better than my entire post.

That's so adorable, I don't find any words. I can't remember that my mother ever sang or even read a story for me !

ChrisB said...

That is lovely, I'm not familiar with it but from the photos I would say you had some happy children/grandchildren.

Hi Pamela ~~ Nice little song and beautiful sleeping babies. Lovely.
I prefer to remember my cane, as I am a wobbly walker. And I haven;t got a gun anyway. Cheers, Merle.

Just popped back over...everytime I see that word, I think it says, "Kangaroo Kangaroo."
Thank goodness for my lysdexia. Keeps life interesting.

Now I need another cup of coffee, as I am falling asleep listening to your lullabye! That was fantastic! You have a soothing voice and it reminds me of Julie Andrews in the Sound of Music! Thanks for sharing the photos too! So cute!
