This is a good song for beginning players, singers and harmonizers - and for rocking babies to sleep. It's simple melody is repeated in the verse and chorus. This is one to sing for as long as it pleases you to sing it. This is the first song we use with dojo groups - easy to learn and room for harmony. We first sing the chorus twice and after every verse and give it an a capella ending. The salty images delight and calm the senses throughout the gentle 4/4 time and a sweet lull gentles the storm and with the power of a lullaby croons babes, young and old, to sleep.
