    I think I read someone say how a lot of these lullabies is just the parents saying “go the f*** to sleep” to their babies. And after last night’s putdown of my baby, I’m sympathetic to the lullaby writers.

    Absolutely! The frustration of parents whose baby won’t go to sleep comes through very clearly in a lot of those lyrics.
