"All La Glory" as written by and Robbie Robertson....
I want to hear pitter patter
Climb up your ladder now

It's time for you to dream away,
For what a big day you've been through.
You've done all the things that you wanted to do.
All la glory, I'm second story,
Feel so tall like a prison wall.

I'm lookin' for a star bright
To shine down your light now
And keep the little one safe and warm,
'Cause to her it's just a fantasy
And to me it's all a mystery.
All la glory, I'm second story,
Feel so tall like a prison wall.

And before the leaves all turn brown,
Before they fall to the ground,
You will find the harmony,

Wait and see.
Listen to the serenade,
Little girl, promenade now.
You've got the sunshine in your hand
And maybe come some sweet day
You'll walk that Milky Way.
All la glory, I'm second story,
Feel so tall like a prison wall,
That tall.

    General CommentThis is such a sweet song. I remember wanting to learn this for my little girl, as a bedtime song, to send her off. It's almost like a prayer, like so many songs are.

    "I'm second story" must be something that means something personal to Robbie Robertson, I'd think. Maybe it was something he heard a kid or someone say, meaning that they feel very up or even "high".

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful and sweet, as befitting an ode to a (Robbie's) newly born daughter. But
    "Feel so tall like a prison wall" is a strange line to have in a lullaby, and what's the significance of saying "La" instead of "The"?
