Hi Mama Lisa,
Ashley could have a look at Christina Stewart’s website http://www.kistodreams.org. Christina has two CD’s, one of Traditional Scottish lullabies, called Kist O’dreams and a second called Bairn’s Kist which has 25 songs, dandling songs, action songs, singing games and lullabies. The three craws, Ally Bally and dance to your daddy are on the second one. Christina is also on myspace.com, where you can download some of her songs
