    A folk song my mum used as a lullaby for us when we were babies, and I used for my own family. It has also always been sung or played on the bagpipes at family funerals!

    Not strictly a childhood song but I recently went to a Christening and this was played. I thought it was brilliant.

    My mother used to sing: Listen to the mockingbird, and you are my sunshine.

    From my daughter's childhood actually: I sang this to her almost every night from about age 4 up to 8 or 9. Sometimes guitar, sometimes not, but she always wanted this song. After that funny bedtime stories were the standing order, but I still love this little lullaby.
