My dad sang a lullaby to me back in the mid to late 1940's and also to my daughter when she was growing up in the mid to late 60's. We also sang it to my grandson when he was little.
We disagree on the wording. I think it went like this.. she thinks it is different.
60 years later, I need to know if my memory of the lullaby is right or wrong! I really need help locating the correct words of this song... They go something like this:
My cherry blossom, you stole my heart.
Made me the target for Cupid's dart.
You're sweeter far than violet or rose.
How much I love thee nobody knows.
High as the mountain, deep as the sea;
Such is the love dear, I have for thee.
Winter may come and summer depart,
Still cherry blossom, you're in my heart.
I hope someone can help!

Well done, Francis. That's quite a find.
Thank you so much for this information. I have been looking for many months for this and, in less than 3 hours, I have the information I was searching for.
Thanks again! Cat Purrson
