Marlena wrote asking for help with a Spanish kids song or lullaby.  Here’s her email:

Hi, 

I am looking for a song with the refrain "soongee, soongee, soongee" that is sung to infants.   

The song is in Spanish.  My grandparents were originally from Mexico.  My family has sung that song to babies ever since I can remember, usually holding and bouncing them, but all they sing is the refrain and I was told there are actual lyrics, like a lullaby.   It’s either a nursery rhyme or lullaby – although now that I think about it, lullabies are to put a baby to sleep, and this song was definitely for bouncing a baby on your lap. 

Any idea what this can be?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Marlena

If anyone can help wit this song, please let us know in the comments below.

Thanks!

Mama Lisa
