First Of The Month Projects

First of the Month Creative Time: Write a Lullaby

Who doesn’t love 90’s rap? Coolio’s ‘Gansta’s Paradise‘ was one of my favorites growing up. I distinctly remember my mother throwing my CD single of the song out the window because she hated the lyrics – I think that made me like it more. For some reason this song has been stuck in my head lately – so I figured I would use it in my creative project for the month.

As discussed in my “first of the month” project post – March creativity is devoted to writing a lullaby. Here’s my offering – to the tune of Gansta’s Paradise. I really had fun with this and am considering recording it. Enjoy!

As I walk to the nursery, not a noise I make

I take a look at my babe and realize shes awake

Guess I’ve been snugglin and laughin so long

That even my baby thinks that the night is gone

But she aint pooped oh man, why do I deserve it

I be quiet as a monk, you know how I word it

I better watch how I’m talkin and where I’m walkin

Or me and my babe be up all night squakin

I really hate to trip, but those leg-os

As I tip toe, I see my face in the window

Fool, Im the kinda mom-ee that other honies wanna be like

On my knees in the night saying, babe hope your tucked tight.

Keep spending most these nights

Singin lots a nursery lulla-bys

Been spending all these nights

Singin all the nursery lulla-bys

We keep spending most our nights

Singin lots of nurseery lulla-bys

So many sleepless nights

Singin lots of nursery lulla-bys

Look at the situation she got me facin

I cant live a normal life, I was stripped of my sleep

So I gotta be down with night cream

Too much television watchin, givin up my dreams

Im a caffeinated fool with baby on my mind

Got my nuk in my hand and a gleam in my eye

Im a zonked out momster, knee bouncin swayer

And when my baby is down, dont arouse my anger

Fool, the crib aint nothing but a stair case away

Im spending nights with my babe, what can i say

Its two now will she be asleep by 3 or 4

The way things is going I dont know

Tell me how can we go right to sleep

All the songs we heard say sleep bay-bee

Keep spending most these nights

Singin lots a nursery lulla-bys

Been spending all these nights

Singin all the nursery lulla-bys

We keep spending most our nights

Singin lots of nurseery lulla-bys

So many sleepless nights

Singin lots of nursery lulla-bys

Rock a bye baby, bear and some powder

Minute after minute, hour after hour

Everybodys sleepin, but shes still up lookin

She wants somethin from the kitchen, but Im all done cookin

She really has to learn and daddys here to help me

If she cant understand, how can she sleep gee?

I guess she cant, I guess she wont

Sleeps just a front, thats why I know my night is out of luck fool!

Keep spending most these nights

Singin lots a nursery lulla-bys

Been spending all these nights

Singin all the nursery lulla-bys

We keep spending most our nights

Singin lots of nurseery lulla-bys

So many sleepless nights

Singin lots of nursery lulla-bys

Tell me how can we go right to sleep

All the songs we heard say sleep bay-bee (x2)
