Re: songs about mothers, fathers and mothers in law

Just off the top of my head:
Hobn mir a nigndl
Di mizinke
There's a song whose name I can't remember right now about Di mekhutonim
geyn, sha shtill...something like that.  I'll look it up later.
Lullabies, if you're going that route.
Di mashke
Meyerke (or Nokhumke-depending on which version you're aiming for) mayn
Nor a mame
Mayn tate
A yidishe mame

Feel free to email me privately about anything you aren't familiar with.
