Sabrina's songs

These are my two favourite songs to sing to Sabrina.
Tallulah from Bugsy Malone (with Tallulah replaced by Sabrina):

and the other is a country number by Charlie Rich

And am adding the rockabye series to her repertoire, The Cure has gone down well with the whole household and the neighbours

Twitter's just like having fun with your facebook status really. Will see if it takes.

Musically - I'm in love. With Dan Black and Johnny West. Different sounds, but both with an uncanny way with lyrics.
