koty dwa lullaby

Hello!

When I was little my Mum used to sing:
Ah ah ah, koty dwa
Szare bure obedwa
Jeden poszedl na myszy
Drugi thymes2 kolyszy

Well I think that was it anyway. My Mum passed away before I had the need to sing lullabies and I have spent the last 5 years singing that to my children. My problem is that I am sure that over the years I have the tune horribly wrong. Does someone know of a link to the tune and whether the words are correct?

I'm glad I've found this place. :-)

Here's the tune :-) The text is a little different from yours. And it's for sure 'kotki', not 'koty'.

Thank you!!
I have been wondering why I couldn't find it on the internet and it was because it's kotki and not koty.
I sing it so differently you wouldn't believe. Shows what about 30 years of not hearing a tune does for the memory. Also my Mum wasn't the best singer in the first place God rest her soul and I'm not either.

Thanks again Zajec.

[Moved from]: What is the lullaby said to babies in Poland?

There is a song my mom used to sing to me when I was little but my dad refused to let her teach my siblings and I Polish so I have no idea how to spell it. I wish to remember it. It starts off .. for lack of proper spelling ... Ah ah AH! Kotki Wa!

Does anyone know?

I did not have success as I did not know how to spell the words of it myself until I found this thread.
