Robert wrote to us that his dad sang this song to him... "My Dad sang a German lullaby to me when I was little. My Great Grandfather came to the U.S. in the late 1800 – early 1900's. I'm sure he sang it to my Dad also! My Great Grandfather was from the town of Heide in the Northwest part of Germany."
