Lovely Lullaby Lyrics and an Explanation

I've since found the lyrics to Hushabye Mountain (courtesy of my mother who found them and emailed them to me :) I don't have the ability or motivation to get the music for it, so you'll have to either remember the tune from the movie if you've seen it, or go rent the movie and memorize the tune while enjoying the movie for the first time. In fact, I recommend seeing the movie either way, since I like it so much. I'd like to see it again myself. Well, without further ado:

HUSHABYE MOUNTAIN
A gentle breeze from Hushabye Mountain
Softly blows o'er lullaby bay.
It fills the sails of boats that are waiting--
Waiting to sail your worries away.
It isn't far to Hushabye Mountain
And your boat waits down by the key.
The winds of night so softly are sighing--
Soon they will fly your troubles to sea.
So close your eyes on Hushabye Mountain.
Wave good-bye to cares of the day.
And watch your boat from Hushabye Mountain
Sail far away from lullaby bay.

Now for the explanation: I've not posted anything until now because I was in CA for a week and returned this last Wednesday. I returned safely but was very tired from staying up later than usual for the most of the nights (11pm-ish), and ridiculously later than usual on two of the nights (3am on Saturday with 2 sisters and a brother-in-law, and 4:30am on Tuesday with one sister (M)).

Needless to say, I was making great use of my mother's willingness to babysit. And it's fun to stay up late, even though I don't do it much anymore. Babies and husbands usually put the kibosh on that whole thing. But while my husband wasn't around to be the voice of reason, and my baby was being safely watched, I just couldn't resist staying up with sisters and friends and playing card games, and eating ice cream, etc. Now I'm content to be home and go to bed early for the sake of recovery.

I shall add Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to the netflix queue immediately (you convinced me with the netflix. more importantly, you convinced Paul.). The only thing I remember about that movie is the flying car and maybe a candy factory or something?

Anyway--glad you had fun in California. Husbands! Babies! They're such fun haters.
