Shlof mayn kind mayn tsutsik: weary father rocks the baby while his wife is out dancing the Charleston.

I don't actually know for certain that this tune, from Sholom Aleichem's famous lullaby, is the correct one for these lyrics, but it fits, and most parodies are set to famous melodies.

I haven't been posting lately because I've been too sick to sing for three weeks. Ken Bloom played this guitar part for me almost a month ago. While I was waiting to get better, I made the music video:

Maybe some day another tune will show up for this song.
