"And down will come Oma..."
Chelsea (2) and Lucy (3) are having a sleepover at Oma's. The girls are snuggled in their sleeping bags and Oma begins her lullaby repertoire.
Lucy: Oma, why are you singing?
Oma: I'm singing you to sleep. (Sings a few bars...)
Lucy (sitting up): How long are you going to sing?
Oma: Until you fall asleep.
Lucy (quickly faking sleep): I'm asleep.
Oma: I'm singing until Chelsea falls asleep, too.
Lucy: You said you'd just sing until I fell asleep. I'm asleep.
Oma: Shall I stop singing?
Lucy: Yes. You can just stop singing and you can just go out of here.
