about

"A Little Heart Like You", by Martha's Trouble is a genuine folk-song sounding album of children's lullabies.

"Dreamland has come and it is peaceful. It's where imaginations fly." -Goodnight Sweet Child by Martha's Trouble.

Martha's Trouble released their first children's album that not only is soothing for baby, but it's not boring for mom and dad. After touring the country for years and talking to parents all over, Martha's Trouble realized the need for thier music to reach the youngest generation. Being parents themselves they know how important music is for children's developement and it only made sense that they would add this to their catalog. Not only does the album provide audio stimulation, but it has visual stimulation as well from the beautiful artwork that the album includes.

The duo created a very organic, acoustic record, utilizing soothing, calming instruments and repetitive beats (with only hand percussion such as djembe, cajon, kanjira, and frame drum) for a sound that is both feel-good and relaxing. This album contains a total of ten songs, with four originals and some traditional lullabies thrown in, as well, such as “Twinkle Twinkle,” “Hush Little Baby,” and “You Are My Sunshine.” From iPads to iPods, video games and all things electronic, it’s not just adults who are so often receiving such a steady stream of stimuli these days. Kids are, too. Folk duo Martha’s Trouble decided to go unplugged in hopes that children might, as well. At least at bedtime.

"A Little Heart Like You" is simply an expression of parental love and one that every child should hear.

Track Name: Goodnight Sweet Child
It's quiet out the moon is sleeping                                       
The stars take their place up in the sky
Now close your eyes it's time for dreaming
As I sing to you this lullaby

Goodnight sweet child goodnight
You are Gods delight
So precious in His sight
Goodnight, goodnight

Goodnight sweet child goodnight
Angels take their flight
To watch over you tonight
Goodnight, goodnight

Dreamland has come and it is peaceful
It's where imaginations fly       
These safe and loving arms that keep you
Will always be by your side
Track Name: Slocumb's Lullaby
You are so beautiful to me            
You are so beautiful to me
Can't you see
You're everything I've hoped for
You're everything I need
You are so beautiful to me
                     
Go to sleep, go to sleep
Go to sleep little baby
Go to sleep, go to sleep
Go to sleep

You are so beautiful to me            
You are so beautiful to me
Can't you see
You're everything I've hoped for
You're everything I need
You are so beautiful to me

La La la, la la la
la la la, la la la la

You are so beautiful
to me
Track Name: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are

When the blazing sun is gone
When he nothing shines upon
Then you show your little light
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night

Then the traveller in the dark
Thanks you for your tiny spark
He could not see which way to go
If you did not twinkle so
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are

In the dark blue sky you keep
And often through my curtains peep
For you never shut your eye
Till the sun is in the sky

Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
Track Name: You Are My Sunshine
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine         
You make me happy when skies are gray           
You'll never know dear how much I love you      
Please don't take my sunshine away 

So let the sun shine in                 
Face it with a grin
Smilers never loose
And frowners never win
So let the sun shine in
Face it with a grin
Open up your heart and let the sun shine in

You are my sunshine 
My only sunshine 
You make me happy 
When skies are gray 
You'll never know dear
How much I love you 
Please don't take my sunshine away 

So let the sun shine in
Face it with a grin
Smilers never loose
And Frowners never win
So let the sun shine in
Face it with a grin
Open up your heart and let the sun shine in
Track Name: A Little Heart Like You
Let's count 1, 2, 3
Close your eyes and see
You will have sweet dreams
Now, goodnight       

As this world is changing
The one thing that stays true
Is the love I have for 
A little heart like you
                
4, 5, 6, 7, sheep  
Count them as they leap
So you fall asleep
Now, goodnight

As this world is changing    
The one thing that stays true
Is the love I have for
A little heart like you

Let's count 8, 9, 10
We are at the end
Then we'll start again
Now, goodnight

As this world is changing
The one thing that stays true
Is the love I have for
A little heart like you

Let's count 1, 2, 3
Close your eyes and see
Track Name: Precious Love
As I watch you sleep tonight
I see Gods light
What a blessing you are
Oh beautiful love of mine
I treasure these times
You're my shining star

Precious love
My sweet sunshine
Rest your head till morning time
Precious love
You'll always be
The sweetest thing to me

These tender moments I adore
I love you more
Than any words could say
Even when you grow with time
My little child
You will always stay

Precious love
My sweet sunshine
Rest your head till morning time
Precious love
You'll always be
The sweetest thing to me
Track Name: Bedtime Prayer
As I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
May angels watch me through the night
And keep me in their blessed sight

oh oh oh oh

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
May God guard me through the night
And wake me with the morning light

oh oh oh oh

As I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
And in the morning when I awake
Help me God, the path of love to take

oh oh oh oh
Track Name: Hush Little Baby
Hush, little baby, don't say a word
Mama's gonna buy you a mockingbird
And if that mockingbird won't sing
Mama's gonna buy you a diamond ring

And if that diamond ring turns brass
Mama's gonna buy you a looking glass
And if that looking glass gets broke
Mama's gonna buy you a billy goat

And if that billy goat won't pull
Mama's gonna buy you a cart and bull
And if that cart and bull fall down
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town

Hush, little baby, don't say a word
Daddy's gonna buy you a mockingbird
And if that mockingbird won't sing
Daddy's gonna buy you a diamond ring

So hush little baby and don't you cry
your daddy loves you and so do I
Track Name: Jesus Loves Me
Jesus loves me this I know       
For the Bible tells me so               
Little ones to Him belong       
They are weak, but He is strong               

Yes Jesus loves me   
Yes Jesus loves me    
Yes Jesus loves me 
The Bible tells me so            

Jesus loves me he who died       
Heaven's gates to open wide  
He will wash away my sin         
Let His little child come in                     

Jesus loves me when I'm good       
When I do the things I should    
Jesus loves me when I'm bad      
Even though it makes him sad
Track Name: Special To Me
Don't you worry, don't you cry   
The moon is dancing in the sky
The day is done, this day was bliss
Now poems, prayers, and promises                 

You're so special
You're so special to me
You're so special
You're so special to me
la da da

From my hands now feel my love
My voice brings peace just like a dove
These prayers I pray will wrap you tight
Now snuggle down as I whisper goodnight

You're so special
You're so special to me
You're so special
You're so special to me
la da da
