Mary wrote me looking for the full lyrics to an Irush lullaby:
My sister-in-law is trying to find a lullaby sung to her as a child but she doesn’t know the title. She has a very new little grandson…
I remember the day that I was born
T’was a frosty winter morn
The doctor said I was a chubby chap
And when the nurse she put me on her lap
She washed me all over I remember
And powdered me all up you see
Then she put me in the cradle by the fender in that little shirt
me mother made for me.
Anything you can help us with would be appreciated.
If anyone knows more lyrics to this lullaby, or the name of it, please comment below.
