about

Tyler Lewis (violin), Veronika Adams (bass), special guest, Misha Bodnar (cello) and Valerie hunkered down in a cave-like apartment in Santa Barbara while on a Southern California tour to create this sweet recording. Despite its lullaby genre, this song was brilliantly recorded and mixed by iconic political gangster Ice Cube's engineer, Dave "Dizmix" Lopez.

lyrics

One look into Mama's eyes, she sings a beautiful lullaby
A melody like a rocking chair to satisfy
those dreams you dream all day and night

she sings, Here's to you, Maribel
A song for you, sweet angel
So many will come your way, Maribel
But this one's from me to you, angel

Maribel, you got the world waiting for you

So when you cry, the rivers and oceans flow
When you smile, the sun comes out to say hello
When you sleep, even the birds stop chattering
When you wake, they make a new song to sing

they sing, Here's to you, Maribel
A song for you, sweet angel
So many will come your way, Maribel
But this one's from me to you, angel

Maribel, you got the world waiting for you
