This little story is told in song, and is meant to express the love of a father and mother for their children, as well as the danger they will risk in order to get a child out of trouble. A textual transcription of this song, in English and entitled "Lebanese Lullaby," forms part of this collection. Mr. Nicholas Debs came to the United States in 1920.
