Best songs about babies/children? - Page 2

Watching Scotty Grow by Bobby Goldsboro

yes, it's corny 1970's country, but you get this lyric:

In four short years I've gone from rags to riches,
And what I did before that I don't know,
So let it rain on my windowpane, I got my own rainbow,
And we're sitting here shining watching Scotty grow.
it's also the tune used on The Simpsons when Homer helps Bart build his soapbox derby car. tee hee hee

There's a song I heard once and have been trying ever since to find - it's by Connie Calder (Kalder?) and has a line about "with our babies in our arms". Anybody know it? It made me cry - and I didn't even have kids then!

Here's a few I like:

At Last (Etta James)
Sang this to my first baby all the time. Still get choked up.
"You smiled, you smiled---and then the spell was cast. Now
here we are in Heaven, for you are mine at last."

I Don't Want to Miss a Thing (Aerosmith)
"I could stay awake just to hear you breathing
Watch you smile while you are sleeping
While you're far away dreaming
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
I could stay lost in this moment forever
Every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure . . ."

Ahh--gets me in tears every time.

I Need You (LeeAnn Rhimes)

You Belong to Me (Written by Pee Wee King, Chilton Price and Redd Stewart )

For Once in My Life

And there's one I am trying to think of--it is by a female country singer, I guess. It has the line "I want to wake up every morning to your sweet face . . .". I don't know the title, but I love it as sung to a baby!!

"Sweet Child of Mine" by Guns-N-Roses (I know, I know, but it IS a sweet song!)

"Asleep and Dreaming" by Magnetic Fields
Here are some of its lyrics:
"I've seen you laugh at nothing at all, I've seen you sadly weeping./ The sweetest thing I ever saw was you asleep and dreaming./ I don't know if you're beautiful, but it's not for me to judge./ I can't tell if you're beautiful, because I love you too much."
!!!!!!! (It's on the 69 Love Songs 3-CD set, which is all really incredible.)

"The One Who Knows" by Dar Williams

one last hurrah for this old thread...

...hey mamas, just wanted to share a great tune that I was reminded of the other day, Lady Madonna by the Beatles:

Lady Madonna, baby at your breast, wonder how you manage to feed the rest

Indeed....much more challenging to feed my 2 1/2 year old than my 8 month old!

"Little Creatures" and "Up All Night" by the Talking Heads - on the same album too!

and how about "Cry Baby Cry" by the Beatles

These are pretty smarmy but I like the Celine Dion song "Because you loved me" and the Josh Groban song, "You lift me up".

"Joy" by Talib Kweli

He rhymes about how beautiful his wife is during during her pregnancies, how they used a midwife & describes the births, how he cried when they put his daughter in his arms. It's about how much precious joy his children bring him. In the background Mos Def (also a daddy) is saying "I know how ya feel, Kweli I know how ya feel..."

It's AWESOME hearing a daddy describe how joyous & wonderful children are. Now if only Outkast will do something like that...

Sweet Honey in the Rock has a song version of "On Children" by Kahlil Gibran that I've always loved. Also, John McCutcheon's Room at the Top of the Stair.
