Speaking of lullabies, the other song in my tiny bed-time repertoire is, ironically enough, Wake Up Song from an album with Swedish jazz star Viktoria Tolstoy. Oh, by the way, kid does not know English (other than by name) but enjoys it nonetheless.
WAKE UP SONG (Esbjörn Svensson / Per Holknekt)
Listen little love of mine,
Time to wake up, rise and shine,
A new day's here to show me all
The colors thru your baby eyes.
Get up sweetheart take my hand,
Show me to the promised land,
I need you there to tell me all
Is well and help me understand.
Open up the skies
Come heavenly surprise
You are my guiding miracle,
You show me and my spirit flies.
You're my angel here with me,
Help me see, what you can see...
