Does Anyone Know of a Lullaby with a Cucumber from Suriname?

Amelia wrote:


I am looking for a certain lullabye or nursery rhyme that has to do with a cucumber…

‘Go to sleep baby and I will give you a cucumber’ or ‘Stop to cry baby…’

I would have posted it but I have no idea where this rhyme is from. Have you heard of it?

Thank you very much,
Amelia Smith

    My name is Ruth Koenders,I am a songwriter from Suriname,and I am very curious about the song: a cucumber from Suriname.
    I am sure its a good cucumber:)
    I know a lot of Songs,especially Surinamese songs and I also write songs for children,but I never heard of this cucumber song. I guess its made outside of Suriname.
