Unconventional lullabies

My daughter was a little fussy when I tried to put her to bed this evening so I opted to sing to her. I had two songs stuck in my head and neither were really lullabies (but I figure any song can be a lullaby if you sing it right).

"I met her in a club down in old SoHo
Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like
Cherry Cola
Cee-Oh-El-Ay Cola..."

that didn't seem right to me so instead I went with...

"John Jacob Jingleheimerschmitt his name is my name too
Whenever we go out
The people always shout
There goes John Jacob Jingleheimerschmitt!
tra la la la la la la la..."

Very cute! I used to sing the Beatles to my son when he was a baby.

I actually wrote lullabies for my boys - because if I started to sing one of the 'Standards', they'd sing along with me and that, it seemed, belabored the point - which was that they go to sleep.

I think that earns you the "cool Dad" award!
