Subject: Lyr Req: Old German lullaby?
I swear I posted this two days ago, but I cannot find the thread anywhere...

I am looking for the title of a song, perhaps a lullaby, that was probably sung in German. A very phonetic rendering of the chorus would be "Hi-chee boom bi-chee boom boom." This was a song that my German-American father, who grew up in the 1920s in Minnesota, used to sing to us when we were small.

I don't know enough German to know if the lyric could make any sense if translated.
