This tune has a bit of a story. I remember as a child always being horrified as when I heard the lullaby, "Rock-a-bye-Baby". I think this was because at a very young age like every other kid in winter in Alberta, you learned how to skate. There were no helmets back then and I did a back-flop on the ice and cracked the old noggin a good one ... 57 years later it still hurts. So I knew from first hand experience the kind of pain the baby would feel if down came "baby cradle and all" to the sidewalk.

I was thinking about this one night a few years back and decided to write ... yes by God! ... a PROTEST LULLABY! In my lullaby the baby and his teddy bear take care of business ... actually, you probably wouldn't want to sing this to your child
