Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Do-do (Spanish lullaby) 'Little shoes...'
Azizi's post from Sept, 2009 explained that 'doux doux' meaning sweet, often accompanies 'darling.' Finally, after 40 years, I understand this deathless verse from the Kingston Trio:

Took me girlfriend home the other night,
Go meself in an awful fight.
She said, "Doux, doux darling, won't you please come in?"
Her old lady socked me a rolling pin!
