Thread Name: Bouncing baby rhymes
Subject: RE: Bouncing baby rhymes
I must admit, I use Banbury Cross whilst bouncing my granddaughter on my knee. My mum used to sing Christopher Robin. Once my lads were too old for that, they'd lay in bed whilst I first read them a story then get the guitar out. Morningtown Ride, Puff the Magic Dragon, Liverpool Lullaby....
In The UK, some of us might smile at the term "bouncing baby" as it denotes a rather large baby. "Bonny" being another way of saying they like their milk.....
