Hi, one of my favorites is Baby Of Mine. I think it was an original Disney soundtrack from Dumbo.

Baby of Mine

Baby mine, don't you cry

Baby mine, dry your eyes

Rest your head close to my heart

Never to part, baby of mine

Little one, when you play

Pay no heed what they say

Let your eyes sparkle and shine

Never a tear, baby of mine

If they knew all about you

They'd end up loving you too

All the same people who scold you

What they'd give just for the right to hold you

From your head down to your toes

You're not much, goodness knows

But you're so precious to me

Sweet as can be, baby of mine.

Hi OCDmom,

I can identify with 2 songs: "Rainy Days and Mondays" by the Carpenters, and "Dust in the Wind" by Kansas. If you want to see the lyrics, I can go find it for you.

Thanks.

p.s. I'm not familiar with Baby of Mine--can you hum a few bars? ;-))

My favorite song is "I Believe I Can Fly" by R Kelly. I like the dumbo song to, it sounds like it would be cute.

I Believe I Can Fly

By R Kelly

I used to think that I could not go on

And life was nothing but an awful song

But now I know the meaning of true love

I'm leaning on the everlasting arms

If I can see it, then I can do it

If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

I believe I can fly

I believe I can touch the sky

I think about it every night and day

Spread my wings and fly away

I believe I can soar

I see me running through that open door

I believe I can fly

I believe I can fly

I believe I can fly

See I was on the verge of breaking down

Sometimes silence can seem so loud

There are miracles in life I must achieve

But first I know it starts inside of me, oh

If I can see it, then I can be it

If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

Hey, cuz I believe in me, oh

If I can see it, then I can do it

If I just believe it, there's nothign to it

Hey, if I just spread my wings

I can fly

I can fly

I can fly, hey

If I just spread my wings

I can fly

Fly-eye-eye

Hi OCDmom,

I'll check out youtube and see if I can find that song. Thanks!

I did find the words to Rainy Days... and also the Kansas song....

Rainy Days and Mondays

by the Carpenters

Talkin' to myself and feelin' old

Sometimes I'd like to quit, nothing ever seems to fit

Hangin' around, nothing to do but frown

Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

What I've got they used to call the blues

Nothin' is really wrong, feelin' like I don't belong

Walkin' around, some kind of lonely clown

Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

Funny but it seems I always wind up here with you

Nice to know somebody loves me

Funny but it seems that it's the only thing to do

Run and find the one who loves me

What I feel has come and gone before

No need to talk it out, we know what it's all about

Hangin' around, nothing to do but frown

Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

Funny but it seems that it's the only thing to do

Run and find the one who loves me

What I feel has come and gone before

No need to talk it out, we know what it's all about

Hangin' around, nothing to do but frown

Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

Dust In the Wind

by Kansas

I close my eyes,

Only for a moment, and the moment's gone

All my dreams,

Pass before my eyes, a curiosity

Dust in the wind,

All they are is dust in the wind

Same old song,

Just a drop of water in an endless sea

All we do,

Crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

Dust in the wind,

All we are is dust in the wind

Don't hang on,

Nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky

It slips away,

And all your money won't another minute buy

Dust in the wind,

All we are is dust in the wind

(All we are is dust in the wind)

Dust in the wind,

(Everything is dust in the wind)

Everything is dust in the wind

Hey OCDmom,

That Baby of Mine song is just too sad! Don't think I'll listen to it again soon!

Hey malign,

A lot of the Carpenter's songs have that same effect on me when I'm sad, can't really listen to them either. But, somehow when I sing with the song, it tends to make me feel a little better, probably because I can relate to the words, especially the Rainy Days song. Dust in the Wind was also used in the Highlander tv series when the Highlander's long time girlfriend dies--yes, it's also a sad song, but I love the music.

Hi renol,

I like "I believe I can fly" only when I'm in a good mood already! Go figure!--but don't read into that (get enuf of that in therapy!).

thanks.

Pink's "Don't let me get me" isn't really a favorite of mine, but I sure can relate to the words some days....

and you're correct OCDMom - "Baby Mine" is from the Dumbo soundtrack. Here's the info on it: (from this web site: http://disney-lyrics.us/dumbo/Baby-Mine.php)

Baby Mine

From "Dumbo"

Music composed by Frank Churchill

Lyrics written by Ned Washington

Hi all,

When my children were babies I used to sing commercials to them, and nursery rhymes as well. Now, my daughter is about to give birth and I wonder what I, as grandpa, will sing??? :o

By the way, I am back.

Hi Alan,

Rhetorical question? but I'm answering anyway (sorry)!

"patty cake" is a good one that all the babies I babysat really love. "twinkle twinkle little star" is another one. (Gotta do the hand motions to the song or it's not fun.) Yes, the classics; they never seem to fail.

Commercials? what commercials did you sing to your kids? I can't think of anything current that would be a nursery-rhyme equivalent.

I think most of the songs from Disney movies would work, tho' I can't remember any right off the bat, sorry.

And, glad you're back Allan. I missed you! :)

Hi everyone and sing along:

If all of the rain drops were lemon drops and gum drops,

oh what a world this would be,

I would sit out side with my mouth open wide

(now open your mouths) and "ahhhhhh."

I guess I'm a kid at heart. I still love it and as we wait for our first grandchild to be born, I am trying to remember more.:)

theres a really great soundtrack to the cartoon film Spirit: Stallion of the Cimmaron. its a kid movie about a horse, but the music by Bryan Adams can relate to anything. its not not nursery ryhmish, singalongy type stuff at all. i have the songs on my ipod and listen to them when i get worried(hence my name.) theyre not enormously popular but you cna search it on itunes etc. if your interested:)

Hi Allan! You can't go wrong with nursery rhymes --- they're timeless. Even some of the commercials. I definitely sing my baby commercials too! But you should try singing "Baby of Mine" to your grandchildren. I think it's therapeutic to the one singing as well.:)

"Baby of Mine" is still a sad song to me 'cuz I see that video everytime I think about it! I couldn't sing it to a baby w/o crying!

I just remembered I have another favorite song, the Superman song that is also kind of sad but beautiful:

(maybe not for kids, but still a personal favorite about being accepted for one's self and not just for who people want you to be, to put it simply)

Superman (It's Not Easy)

by Five for Fighting

I can't stand to fly

I'm not that naive

I'm just out to find

The better part of me

I'm more than a bird, I'm more than a plane

I'm more than some pretty face beside a train

And it's not easy to be me

I wish that I could cry

Fall upon my knees

Find a way to lie

'Bout a home I'll never see

It may sound absurd but don't be naive

Even heroes have the right to bleed

I may be disturbed but won't you concede

Even heroes have the right to dream?

And it's not easy to be me

Up up and away away from me

Well it's all right

You can all sleep sound tonight

I'm not crazy or anything

I can't stand to fly

I'm not that naive

Men weren't meant to ride

With clouds between their knees

I'm only a man in a silly red sheet

Digging for kryptonite on this one way street

Only a man in a funny red sheet

Looking for special things inside of me

Inside of me, inside of me, yeah

Inside of me, inside of me

I'm only a man in a funny red sheet

I'm only a man looking for a dream

I'm only man in a funny red sheet

And it's not easy, it's not easy to be me

For Alan,

when my babies were small we got a set of Disney Kids Sing-Along songs and kept the tapes in the car. (yes, this was before CDs were the thing and cassettes were still very prevalent for car audio.... guess I'm dating myself just a little!) Everyone would sing along with everything, and it was great fun. We even learned a few new songs to sing, and some days we'd sing without the tapes.

Also, Itsy Bitsy Spider was fun too, especially when you have the "spider" (your fingers) crawl up the kid's belly or back in place of the water spout!!

congrats on the new grandbaby!

Oh yeah, I've been trying to decide on a favorite song, that is a hard thing to try and decide, but at the moment I think I will go with Wildflowers, by Tom Petty. I don't however have the lyrics, sorry.

Hi smallstar,

I found the lyrics to your Wildflowers song on a website called Allspirit (http://allspirit.co.uk/index.html). I also listened to it on another site; first time I've heard it and I really like the words and the music.

Check out that Allspirit website. It has "spiritual unfoldment, poetry, writings, quotations, song lyrics and sacred texts"; you may enjoy it.

Hey Allan, I found a site with lots of nursery rhymes and lullabies. It also has a grandparent's page! (http://www.nurseryrhymes4u.com/) Congrats on your grandbaby!

Wildflowers

by Tom Petty

You belong among the wildflowers

You belong in a boat out at sea

Sail away, kill off the hours

You belong somewhere you feel free

Run away, find you a lover

Go away somewhere bright and new

I have seen no other

Who compares with you

You belong among the wildflowers

You belong in a boat out at sea

You belong with your love on your arm

You belong somewhere you feel free

Run away, go find a lover

Run away, let your heart be your guide

You deserve the deepest of cover

You belong in that home by and by

You belong among the wildflowers

You belong somewhere close to me

Far away from your trouble and worry

You belong somewhere you feel free

You belong somewhere you feel free

My favorite song is "wish you were here" by Pink Floyd.

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,

blue skies from pain.

Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?

A smile from a veil?

Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?

Hot ashes for trees?

Hot air for a cool breeze?

Cold comfort for change?

And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.

We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,

Running over the same old ground.

What have you found? The same old fears.

Wish you were here.
