No, I have not heard these children's songs.<br />

I used to sing in public a lot, solos, duets, trios, quartets, choirs, chorals but after my kids were born it was all reserved for them - lullaby's every night. I'd sing the same song over and over again and would hope they would go to sleep. I'd wait until their eyes were closed and try to sneak out of the room. They'd lay they with their eyes closed and say "sing it" and I'd have to come back in the room and sing some more. We still sing the old songs together. I'd sing the songs my mother sang to me. I need to write all of these old songs down and maybe make a CD of them sometime so they won't be lost forever. Songs like "A Nice Tame Squirrel" and "Yankety Zan" and "Hans Is The Dutch Boy". Anybody heard of any of these old songs?

Somehow, I believe your kids will remember your singing and when you are gone, they make up a few songs in tribute to you. <br />

Hello there,<br />
You don't know me but I am a private singer too. In my car driving along I come up with words and music just naturally but when I get home I've always forgotton.<br />
I just enjoy doing it. I used to tell my children I was writing songs for Robbie Williams new album, but they were too smart to believe me!

Moxi, <br />

I also LOVE to sing..anything reasonable.<br />
<br />
Sometimes when the day is gorgeous, I will make up a tune and words, as I offer up a dance of gratefulness to the Almight or Universe for granting me life. <br />
<br />
A lot of songs convey my life experience but sometimes there is no song so I make one. <br />
<br />
Lets keep it going...<br />
