Awwwww! I had to hum everything at first, too! And I am a horrible singer. (never thought I was that bad until dh made a comment before we were married Anyhoo, we do Clementine, Golden Slumbers, Twinkle, Twinkle (which has a ton of verses), Braham's Lullaby, Fais Do-Do (french one), Rock-a-Bye Baby, My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean (probably not a lullaby, but whatever works), You are My Sunshine...and right now my ds's favorite of all that I have to sing at least three times before nap and bed time is Sinead O'Connor's "My Darling Child". I never get tired of that one.

Whenever I don't know the words, I fake them until I can get to the computer. Just "google" the title and lots of choices will come up. I copy and paste them into a Word document to refer to later, until I have them memorized. I'm a geek, I know , but we sing a LOT around here!

I kind of just drone "Sleeeeeeeepy Tiiiiiiiiime" because anything more interesting doesn't help her calm down and go to sleep!

Haha I have THE WORST voice, "singstar" the game told me I was tone deaf!! : As I said in another thread that I've found singing helps Arienne fall asleep without too much crying which is fantastic.

I sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star", with the other verses "Twinkle Twinkle Little Bat" and "Twinkle Twinkle Little Car". Other than that I don't know any other childrens songs. So I just sing her songs I listen too, whatevers playing on the radio or whatever CD I happen to be listening too.... I mainly listen to rock type music and she seems to love it - Although that may just be because I'm singing along to it
