Filksong Lullabye

This song is dedicated to the young lady who made Westercon in 1985 an unforgettable experience for me.

You're Daddy's little darling, and a trufan from your birth
Cutest thing I've ever seen, on or off the Earth.
You were born at your first Westercon one evening in July,
So I just had to write you a fanish lullabye.
    And it's hey, diddle diddle, the cow jumped over the moon
    The moon is a sandbox 'way up in the sky
    Maybe we can play there soon,
    And it's hey, Katy diddle, little Katy don't you cry;
    Your Daddy's here to sing you a filksong lullabye.
When the trufen get together, they have fun in many ways,
But I've had one convention I'll remember all my days.
I missed the Masquerade this year, and the filksong concert too,
But all of that was worth it, 'cause I ended up with you.
It wass sixteen years that summer since Man first reached the moon,
Sixteen 'til next century--my Ghod it seems so soon,
You'll be sweet sixteen at Westercon in the year 2001.
Bet you'll be fan guest of honor; don't you think that would be fun?

    Coda:  (To the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star".) 
    Twinkle, twinkle, little star;
    Katy wonders what you are.
    Up above the world you fly
    Out in space, beyond the sky.
    Twinkle, twinkle on your way;
    Katy's going there someday.
Written during Westercon 38 in 1985, when Katy was 2 days old.
