Sarah wrote asking for help with a childhood song that her father used to sing to her. Here’s what she wrote…
My father died [recently]… While rolling through memories of him & my childhood a song kept repeating.
We were an Air Force family & had been stationed at Lajes Field AFB [in the Portuguese archipelago of the Azores] when I was a small child. The terrible rains and winds used to frighten me. Daddy would sing me a song he had picked up while we were there to calm me.
I don’t speak any Latin language, so I don’t know what he was singing.
I can recall phonetically the words. If you could help me that would be so awesome

Again its in American English phonetics.
Thank you, Sarah
