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

http://bemuzic.bandcamp.com/

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...

LYRICS:

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.

Chorus
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.

Chorus

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!

Chorus

Played on a three string Cigar Box Guitar which you can see more of here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2tqLX_7sY8

Don't feel bad Be, I'm 67 now myself. Getting older ain't too bad, it's all those folks who want you to grow up that are a problem.
