Dance to your Daddy

Dance to your Daddy, known also as When the Boat Comes In, is a Northumbrian dandling song which sings of the seas and those who fished them in the old times of dependence on the little boats coming in with their catch.

Lightly dance a little baby on your knee or on your shoulder to the rhythm of the melody. Find this song and many more like it in Sleepytime Playsongs, our relaxing lie back into baby’s day. Sandra and Leon sing it unaccompanied in one of their loveliest performances together.
