Customize With Your Child's Name

Cutie Baby is a lullaby constructed in a way where you can use your little one's name in the lyrics. All you've got to do is replace the word “Cutie” with a different name and you're good to go. If your little one's name is long, or doesn't rhyme why baby, that's OK. All you've got to truncate the name and add an “a” or a “y” so it does.

For example: David becomes Davy. William becomes Billy. Katrina becomes Katey. Susan becomes Susy. Samuel become Sammy etc.

If you are a gay couple or a single parent, you can simply change the lyrics of “mama” and “papa.” The song is meant to be inclusive of all parents.

Cutie Baby Sheet Music

A Samurai Lullaby Sheet Music - Cutie Baby

I wrote this song when my son was a couple months old. When it was my turn to take the night/morning shift, all I could do was think to myself while he slept for 1-2 hours at a time. The lyrics reflect my fears, my hopes, and my appreciation as a newborn dad.

I hope this lullaby will soothe your baby and let him or her more easily fall asleep. All your baby wants is to hear your lovely voice and feel safe.

Concert Pianist Reader Version!

One day while I was trying to sing my son to sleep, I remembered a long-time FS reader, Charlie Albright was a concert pianist. So I reached out to Charlie to ask whether he could do an improvisation with his genius mind, and he said yes!

The very next morning, he sent me this. Check out his amazing rendition!
