For The Blueberry by bemuzic/Granny! (played on a three string Cigar Box Guitar)

This song was written soon after finding out I was going to be a Granny : -)
I'd been looking on a website that compared foetus size each week to pieces of fruit. At the time it was the size of a blueberry, which for some reason made it all seem very real!!
I'm not really into knitting, so I wrote a song instead. Wrote another one recently and will do a demo of that soon...


For The Blueberry

I don't know what your name is
or who you're gonna be,
but you became so real to me when you were
the size of a blueberry.

We are gonna love you
whatever you say or do.
We are gonna love you
more than you could know,
little blueberry

I want to sing some songs to you
before you're even born,
so when you get to meet me then you won't
be too alarmed.


You're due the first of August,
I won't forget that date.
Though if you're like your Dad then you will
...........................probably be late!
