Kushagarnie, kushagarnie

Baby on your mother’s knee

Kushagarnie, kushagarnie

Eating marmalade for tea.


Buy a rainbow for a penny

Tie it to a tumtum tree.

April showers for pretty flowers

Give them marmalade for tea.


Wrap the wind up in a wigwam

Till it blows a melody

Children dancing, horses prancing

After marmalade for tea.


Find a snowman cold and shivering

Make for him a cup of tea.

Sit him by the fireside glowing,

Give him marmalade for tea.


Chase the sun in grey clouds hiding,

Paint him orange, set him free

Oranges so sweetly growing

Marmalade for you and me.

Me again, Yvonne.
When you first posted this without the audio I heard it in my head not as a lullaby but as a skipping song. If I craptised it on the geetar perhaps I could post as an alternative for you?
Incidentally, the lullaby does it for me!

OOPS I tried to add an audio file to the original entry and managed to delete it! So here it is again.
Technology is alright in its place but that does not appear to be under my fingers!
