SA - Easy/Beginner - Digital Download
Composed by Folk Song. Arranged by Andrea Gaudette. Folk, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Children's Music, Americana. Octavo. 11 pages. Published by Andrea Gaudette (S0.506173).

Item Number: S0.506173

This playful 2-part arrangement intertwines two pentatonic partner songs. The lullaby Bye-lo, Baby-o functions as a sol-mi-la ostinato alongside the humorous Appalachian folk song, What’ll I Do with the Baby-o. Gaudette’s adapted lyrics offer ways to soothe a baby who won’t go to sleep: 

Wrap him up in calico, send him to his mammy-o.

Tickle his chin, wiggle his toes, blow on his belly and touch his nose.

Dance him north, dance him south, put a little binky in his mouth.

The energetic music offers 2nd-3rd grade students an experience of 16th-note patterns while remaining in a middle- to high-D octave range. 

This is an upbeat piece suitable for any concert occasion. It is especially appropriate for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day celebrations.
