Shit we sing to our babies 3: Sing shit with a vengeance

Beyonce – Single Babies (Throw It On The Floor)
You’re up in your buggy
With your favourite lovey
Cosy and cute as can be

So you go for a lob
And now you wanna sob
‘Cos you let your bunny roam free

If you like it then you shouldn’t throw it on the floor
If you like it then you shouldn’t throw it on the floor
Don’t be sad, you shouldn’t throw it on the floor
If you like it then you shouldn’t throw it on the floor
No no no, oh-oh-oh oh oh [repeat ad nauseum, pausing only to give soft toys a bath]

 

Everly Brothers – Wake Up Little Baby
Wake up, little baby, wake up
Wake up, little baby, wake up
dum dee dum dum…

When driving home and she’s at risk of dropping off in the car seat.  From Rick on Twitter 

 

The Smiths – Baby Strikes Again
Sweetness, sweetness I wasn’t joking when I said
You’re sleepy, little sleepy-head
Sweetness, sweetness I wasn’t joking when I said
By rights you should be tucked up in your bed

 

UB40 – Baby in my Kitchen
There’s a baby in mi kitchen what am I gonna do?
There’s a baby in mi kitchen what am I gonna do?
I’m gonna hug that baby that’s what I’m gonna do
I’m gonna hug that baby *snuggggggggggle*

 

The Producers – Bathtime for Scarlett
It’s bathtime, for Mummy and Scarlett,
Bathtime’s a fine time once more!
It’s bathtime, for Mummy and Scarlett,
C’mon Scarlett, go into your bath!

 

Nina Simone – I Put A Hat On You
I put a hat on you
‘Cos its cooold

From Dan on Twitter, to an apparently unimpressed son.

 

The Smiths – Roll Around the Carpet
Roll around the carpet
Snuggle on the patio
I’ll hug you nicely, wooooooah

We like a bit of Smiths in the Smith-Graham-Smith household.

 

As usual, send us the #shityousingtoyourbabies on the #shitwesingtoourbabies hashtag or even Rick’s neater suggestion of #swstob. We’re rapidly running out of days and weeks when this term will be applicable, so sing now while they’re still babies!
