When I was little my parents would sing “It’s All In The Game” while rocking me to sleep.
I swear I remember being in my mom’s arms while she rocked and sang this.
When Izzy was born it was the first song I sang to her.
Occassionally, she’ll want to be rocked before bed, and when I ask her what she wants me to sing she’ll reply, “tears”.

When it gets to the part where he sings, “and he’ll kiss your lips” she turns her head in and gives me a kiss, every time.
She now sings along with me the best she can, and I get teary eyed imagining my little one holding her little one while singing this same song 🙂
