Loo La Lay

Sing this gently like a lullaby, or loud and silly. Suzy, the amazing librarian I learned this from, switches up the phonemes to play subsequent verses with different consonants. How perfect for little babies learning their sounds! You can make it extra goofy by singing as cows (moo ma ma), ghosts (boo ba ba), babies (goo ga ga), or anything else you think up. Listen to it here.

Thanks to Els for reminding me what a great ukulele song this is, and to Julia who mentioned that she could use a few more lullabies for her babytime.
