Welcome, my Nephew
Here is a little song I wrote for my nephew, who was born two weeks ago, to welcome him into this world and hopefully give him some comfort while he rests from the tiring all-day business of processing his mother’s milk. It is thus called Benjamins Schlaflied (Benjamin’s Lullaby) and I play the piano and an accordion, which I borrowed from my sister (the mother) a while ago. It is the first time I used an accordion in a song, so please excuse my less than virtuoso playing.
According to the internet, Benjamin may mean “son of the south” or “son of fortune”, among other things. If Nomen est Omen, he seems to be destined for a bright future. I give him my best wishes for the journey of live he has embarked on!
