Singing with Mamma

Saturday, February 14th 2015

On Valentine’s Day of 2015 the Cambridge Winter Farmers Market gave me my first (U.S.) gig as *Musical* Guest.  I recall singing mostly songs about heartbreak and bad traffic.  The kids took it upon themselves to join me on stage; and while neither my hosting, their performing nor Daddy’s videography were exactly professional, to me they were priceless.

The Continent Song– Lyrics for your edification (from a three year old, btw):

You Are My Sunshine – Lyrics

[CHORUS]:  You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
you make me happy when skies are gray
you’ll never know dear, how much I love you,
please don’t take my sunshine away.

The other night dear, as I lay sleeping,
I dreamed I held you in my arms,
but when I woke dear, I was mistaken,
and I hung my head and cried.


I’ll always love you and make you happy
if you will only say the same
but if you leave me to love another
you’ll regret it all some day


You told me once dear you really loved me
that no one else could come between
but now you’ve left me and love another
you have shattered all my dreams.
