Subject: Lyr Add: DO-DO (Spanish lullaby) 'Little shoes...'
This was requested in another thread.

From The Elementary School Teacher, Volume 3 (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, May, 1903) page 644:

Spanish Lullaby.

Little shoes are sold at the doorway of heaven,
And to all the tattered little angels are given;
Slumber, my darling, slumber, my darling,
Slumber, my darling baby. Do-do, do-do, Ave Maria, do-do.

[from] Sturgis and Blake, Songs of the Pyrenees. Boston: A. P. Schmidt, [1877].
