Thread Name: Lyr Add: Do-do (Spanish lullaby) 'Little shoes...'
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: A las puertas del cielo
I have put a 'Lyr. Add' so that the song posted above by Monique may be picked up by Mudcat search.

Monique, correct me if I am wrong, but arrú would be the imperative of the verb arrullar, to lull babes, noun arrullo, lullaby. Of course Pyrenean Spanish may be different.
Just trying to get it straight in my mind.

Thanks for posting this lullaby. I have looked for it in some Latin American compendia, but haven't found it.

The do do in the old school book cited may have been to make it less strange to English-speakers.
