    Children's welcome songs or rhymes (English)

    Comment

    Can anyone inspire me with the names/lyrics of children's songs/rhymes that are about welcoming a new child into a group, or any other sort of welcome? My customer has a lovely play on the song title "Hallo, hallo, schön, dass du da bist" and I am drawing a blank. All I have in my head now is "Baby Shark". The context is welcoming new babies.

    Babies? Just sing them the German tune. I can't imagine they will notice. ;-)


    Ich meine, wir traktieren unsere Kids ja auch ständig mit "Häppi börßdeh tu juh", ohne dass denen das komisch vorkommt.

    I'm doing a translation for a company website that uses a play on words referring to the song "Hallo, hallo, schön, dass du da bist" in a text about welcoming new babies into the world, and was hoping for some inspiration as to a similar song in English I could use instead, or to be honest anything remotely similar that would make any sense at all to a non-German reader :)

    Das "Hallo, schön dass du da bist" kenne ich als Morgenkreislied aus der Kinderkrippe. Ich könnte mir vorstellen, dass es Sammlungen solcher Lieder für den frühpädagogischen Bereich gibt. Hast du nach so was schon gesucht?

    I have, grinsessa, but the only result is that I now have "Baby Shark" on loop in my brain! The song that keeps on giving.

    I think I'm just going for a different play on words instead, on the phrase "a welcome change", as the text is also about change. The customer will probably have no clue what it means anyway, but I have tried :)
