Newborn

Released February 14, 1999 | Sleeveless

NEWBORN won Creative Child’s Top Creative Toy Award Seal of Excellence 2005, NAPPA Gold 2001, and Children’s Music Web Awards Winner, Classic Recording 2003!

Ever want to just sing to your newborn child? To sit and sing softly and watch as he or she plays or gently falls asleep?

Well, Sara found out that a lot of parents just don’t do that. That they are afraid to sing aloud, a concept she does naturally, but other parents just don’t do. That’s what this self-produced album is all about. To share the gift of song with your future. Put this record on, and sing along, aloud and always!

  • Hush
    Hush little baby, don’t say a word
    Mama’s gonna show you a hummingbird
    If that hummingbird should fly
    Mama’s gonna show you the evening sky
    When the nighttime shadows fall
    We’re gonna hear those crickets call
    While their songs drift from afar
    Mama’s gonna show you a shooting star
    When that star has dropped from view
    Mama’s gonna read a book with you
    When that storybook’s been read
    Mama’s gonna bring you your warm bedspread
    If that spread begins to wear
    Mama’s gonna find you your teddy bear
    If that teddy bear won’t hug
    Mama’s gonna catch you a lightning bug
    If that lightning bug won’t glow
    Mama’s gonna play on her old banjo
    If that banjo’s out of tune
    Mama’s gonna show you the harvest moon
    And as the moon drifts from the sky
    Mama’s gonna sing you a lullaby


    It’s Alright
    It’s alright
    It’s okay
    It’s alright
    It’s okay
    And I love you
    Night and day
    It’s alright
    It’s okay

    Times will be hard
    But we’ll get through
    Times will be hard
    But we’ll get through
    And I love you
    Night and day
    It’s alright
    It’s okay

    This house may fall
    But not on you
    This house may fall
    But not on you
    And I love you
    Night and day
    It’s alright
    It’s okay


    A-Tisket, A-Tasket
    A-tisket, a-tasket
    A green and yellow basket
    I bought a basket for my mama
    And on the way I dropped it
    Oh, I dropped it, I dropped it
    Yes, on the way I dropped it
    A little girly picked it up
    And took it to the market

    She went bop-bop-bopping down the avenue
    Without a single thing to do
    She went peck-peck-pecking all around
    When she spied my basket on the ground

    A-tisket, a-tasket
    I dropped my little basket
    And if that girly don’t bring it back
    I think that I will cry

    She went bop-bop-bopping down the avenue
    Without a single little thing to do
    She went bop-bop-bopping all around
    When she spied my basket on the ground

    A-tisket, a-tasket
    I dropped my little basket
    And if that girly don’t bring it back
    I think that I will cry

    Was it red? No, no, no
    Was it blue? No, no, no
    Was it green? No, no, no
    It was a little yellow basket!


    Lily
    Lily, I love you, I do
    Yes, I’ll always be true
    I’ve been true to you here in my heart
    Lily, I love you, I do
    Yes, I’ll always be true
    I’ve been true to you here from the start

    Here is your hand, it’s so tiny in mine
    With your eyes full of God’s wonderous light
    As I kiss your soft head, I will hold you so tight
    While I whisper, time after time:

    Lily, I love you, I do
    Yes, I’ll always be true
    I’ve been true to you here in my heart
    Oh Lily, I love you, I do
    Yes, I’ll always be true
    I’ve been true to you here from the start

    Oh, where did you come from, sweet angel of love?
    You descended from heaven on wings from above
    When you smile I remember what I’m thinking of
    These moments, where I long to say:

    Lily, I love you, I do
    Yes, I’ll always be true
    I’ve been true to you here in my heart
    Oh Lily, I love you, I do
    Yes, I’ll always be true
    I’ve been true to you here from the start

    There’s a world to be shared, and so much we will do
    Baby mine
    And life will unfold its secrets to you
    in time

    Lily, I love you, I do
    Yes, I’ll always be true
    I’ve been true to you here in my heart
    Lily, I love you, I do
    Yes, I’ll always be true
    I’ve been true to you here from the start


    Goops in it
    We went to the doctor, you and me
    I thought your eyes were booger-free
    Then, as the doctor opened the door
    I spied a little something I hadn’t spied before

    Goops in it
    Goops in it
    Your little eye’s got some goops in it
    Goops in it
    Goops in it
    Your little eye’s got some goops in it

    Playing with your nana, singing some songs
    You’re gettin’ kinda sleepy, the day’s been long
    She takes you to the tubby to wash you clean
    When she spies a little somethin’ that looks a little green

    Goops in it
    Goops in it
    Your little eye’s got some goops in it
    Goops in it
    Goops in it
    Your little eye’s got some goops in it

    We wake up in the morning, it’s time to nurse
    I look into your eyes and I check them first

    For goops in it
    Goops in it
    Your little eye’s got some goops in it
    Goops in it
    Goops in it
    Your little eye’s got some goops in it


    This Heart
    These hands, these hands, these hands
    Were made to hold
    And these lips are here to say these words
    And let this truth be told
    And these legs were made to weather our storms
    And hold up fast and true
    And this heart, this heart, this heart
    Was made for you

    And I know my heart was made for you
    Oh, I know my heart — this heart — was made for you
    And I know that the answer is a love so strong and true
    Oh, I know my heart — this heart — was made for you

    And these eyes, these eyes, these eyes
    Have wept lonely dreams
    And though some arms have held me close
    They were never what they seemed
    So, I looked inside for peace of mind
    And there I found a clue
    That this heart, this heart, this heart
    Was made for you

    And I know my heart was made for you
    Oh, I know my heart — this heart — was made for you
    And I know that the answer is a love so strong and true
    Oh, I know my heart — this heart — was made for you

    And I know what this heart sees
    My heart could not be wrong
    And I know you’re the one for me
    And I believe what I knew all along

    And I know my heart was made for you
    Oh, I know my heart — this heart — was made for you
    And I know that the answer is a love so strong and true
    Oh, I know my heart — this heart — was made for you
    Yes, I know my heart — this heart — was made for you


    Reserved For the One I Love
    There’s a thought I’m holding, it makes me proud
    Gotta keep it inside as I walk through the crowd
    Cannot say it out loud
    It is reserved for the one I love

    When I awake in the dark, my first thought is you
    I have no control now over things I do
    Your name is written on me, too
    I am reserved for the one I love

    Just for you, especially
    Praying that you will want to be the one who’ll have me
    My heart beats out of time
    When your body is this close to mine
    I want to feel like this all the time

    And I would cross my heart, and I would look to the sky
    There’s a million stars before my eyes
    And they remind me why
    I am reserved for the one I love

    Just for you, especially
    Praying that you will want to be the one who’ll have me
    My heart beats out of time
    When your body is this close to mine
    I want to feel like this all the time

    And I would cross my heart, and I would look to the sky
    There’s a million stars before my eyes
    And they remind me why
    I am reserved for the one I love
    I am reserved
    I am reserved for the one I love


    Big Bird, Little Bird
    Big bird, little bird
    Pecking at the ground
    Big bird, little bird
    No one else around

    Big bird took the little bird’s bread
    This is what the little bird said:
    Big bird, just ’cause you’re bigger than me
    And there’s no one else around to see
    Doesn’t mean that you can take my bread!
    That is what the little bird said

    Big bird, little bird
    Pecking at the ground
    Big bird, little bird
    No one else around


    Moonshadow
    I’m bein’ followed by a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow
    I’m leapin and hoppin’ on a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow

    And if I ever lose my hands, lose my plow, lose my land,
    And if I ever lose my hands, oh we…. I won’t have to work no more.
    And if I ever lose my legs, I won’t moan, no, I won’t beg,
    And if I ever lose my legs, weee…. I won’t have to walk no more.

    ‘Cus I’m bein’ followed by a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow
    I’m leapin and hoppin’ on a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow

    And if I ever lose my eyes, all my colours should run dry,
    And if I ever lose my eyes, oh we…. I won’t have to cry no more.
    And if I ever lose my mouth, all my teeth, north and south,
    And if I ever lose my mouth, well…. I won’t have to sing…

    Did it take long to find me? I asked the mother light.
    Did it take long to find me? And are you gonna stay the night?

    Yeah, I’m bein’ followed by a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow
    I’m leapin and hoppin’ on a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow
    Moonshadow
    Moonshadow


    You Are My Sunshine
    You are my sunshine
    My only sunshine.
    You make me happy
    When skies are gray.
    You’ll never know, dear,
    How much I love you.
    Please don’t take my sunshine away

    The other nite, dear,
    As I lay sleeping
    I dreamed I held you here in my arms.
    When I awoke, dear,
    I was mistaken
    So I hung my head and cried.

    You are my sunshine,
    My only sunshine.
    You make me happy
    When skies are gray.
    You’ll never know, dear,
    How much I love you.
    Please don’t take my sunshine away.


    A Slice of Heaven
    You’re a slice of heaven, you’re a bit of a dream
    And everyone that sees you knows just what I mean
    You’ve got your mommy’s eyes, you’ve got your daddy’s hair
    You’re my little angel rockin’ in your rocking chair
    You’re my little angel rockin’ in your rocking chair

    When we play patty-cake, I love you so
    You give so much to me, you’ll never know
    Your eyes are bright with life, your smile so dear
    You’ll learn to wave hello, to laugh, to cry, to cheer

    You’re a slice of heaven, you’re a bit of a dream
    And everyone that sees you knows just what I mean
    You’ve got your mommy’s eyes, you’ve got your daddy’s hair
    You’re my little angel rockin’ in your rocking chair
    You’re my little angel rockin’ in your rocking chair

    I’m glad you’ve chosen me to be the one
    Who holds you in my arms, safe from harm
    I’ll watch you learn to crawl, I’ll watch you run
    I’ll watch you walk away, out on your own

    You’re a slice of heaven, you’re a bit of a dream
    And everyone that sees you knows just what I mean
    You’ve got your mommy’s eyes, you’ve got your daddy’s hair
    You’re my little angel rockin’ in your rocking chair
    You’re my little angel rockin’ in your rocking chair

    I tuck you in when nighttime comes
    I hope your dreams are pleasant ones
    You wake me up, it’s a brand new day
    We’re off to see the world, let’s be on our way!

    ‘Cus you’re a slice of heaven, you’re a bit of a dream
    And everyone that sees you knows just what I mean
    You’ve got your mommy’s eyes, you’ve got your daddy’s hair
    You’re my little angel rockin’ in your rocking chair
    You’re my little angel rockin’ in your rocking chair


    All Things Bright and Beautiful
    All things bright and beautiful,
    All creatures great and small,
    All things wise and wonderful:
    God made them all.

    Each little flower that opens,
    And each little bird that sings,
    God made their glowing colors,
    God made their tiny wings.

    The purple headed mountains,
    The river running by,
    The sunset and the morning
    That brightens up the sky.

    The cold wind in the winter,
    And the pleasant summer sun,
    The ripe fruits in the garden,
    God made them every one.

    God gave us eyes to see them,
    And lips that we might tell
    How great is God Almighty,
    Who has made all things so well.


    We Are Each Other’s Angels
    Well, I hope I see you later
    Cuz it’s time for me to go
    And my ride has just pulled over
    But it sure was good to know you

    Go answer your calling
    Go and fill somebody’s cup
    And if you see an angel falling…
    Won’t you stop and help her up?

    Ohh Oh
    Cuz we are each other’s angels
    Ohh Oh
    And we meet when it is time
    Ohh Oh
    We keep each other going
    And we show each other signs…

    Sometimes you’ll stumble
    Sometimes you’ll just lie down
    Sometimes you will get lonely
    With all these people around

    Ohh Oh
    You might shiver when the wind blows
    Yea, you might get blown away
    Ohh Oh
    You might lose a little colours
    You… you might lose a little faith…

    Ohh Oh
    But we are each other’s angels
    Ohh Oh
    And we meet when it is time
    Ohh Oh
    We keep each other going
    And we show each other signs…

    Well, I reached my destination
    Yea, I finally made it home
    God sent ten thousand angels
    To make me one of his own…

    Ohh Oh
    But we are each other’s angels
    Ohh Oh
    And we meet when it is time
    Ohh Oh
    We keep each other going
    And we show each other signs…

    Oh, we are each other’s angels
    we are each other’s angels
    Oh, we are each other’s angels
    And we meet when it is time
    Oh, we are each other’s angels
    Ohhh, I’ve forgotten how to fly!
    Oh, we are each other’s angels
    Won’t you show me how to fly?
    Oh, we are each other’s angels…
