Bye lo Baby O

I love this song, and we sang it at playgroup today.

It is beautiful in its simplicity, and so versatile with young children.

They love to hear their name in any song.

This one is a lullabye, however can be used to send children off to lunch or whatever.

Today we went around the circle and put everyone’s name in the song, one by one.

Bye lo Baby O off to dreamland you must go.  I heard someone singing Bye Lo as they rode their tricycle.  Even 5 year old boys like this one.

Baby SOH and I sang it when we came home, and we put lots of different names in the song – friends, family, pets.

When Mumma came in the afternoon, Baby SOH sang it to her and put Mumma’s name in there and other names as well.

What a great song to share, Baby SOH.  Love from Nannyjay







About nannyjay

I am an early childhood music specialist, with a passion for music, music for singing, music for children, classical music, contemporary, good quality folk recordings, moving to music that comes from a feeling within. Having recently become a grandmother, the months are flying past too quickly!! I have decided that I would like to record the musical journey Baby SOH and I will take together. Music enhances my own life, and I have seen the contribution music makes to family lives, and children's lives from their youngest days. I am also interested in the contribution music makes to family relationships. I love to sing myself, and so the Kodaly philosophy of music education sits very well with me. Zoltan Kodaly was a Hungarian music educator and composer, and believed that singing is the foundation for all music education. I will soon be attending the early childhood music seminar of the International Society of Music Educators in Beijing, China, which is very exciting. People from the world over meet to share the latest research in music for children 0 - 8 years. So the journey begins.
