OK guys, so one of my mates just had his first child and my nephew (Well, not biologically, but you know how it goes).

I'm playing a solo gig tomorrow (opening for a friend's band in a backyard) and I want to do a cover of a song that's about and appropriate for the birth of a baby boy. Unfortunately most of the songs that come to mind about childbirth are ****ing lame (With Arms Wide Open, Lightning Crashes etc).

Anyone able to think of any good songs that can be played acoustically for such an occasion? Folk/punk type stuff is best but open to anything. Nothing too hard though - only a few hours to learn it right.

Baby Baby by Justin Bieber.

That won't be too hard to learn
If you have never checked out the Wood Brothers. Do yourself a favor and look them up. Best. Band. Ever.

This one's less lame than the ones you mentioned, at least.

If your audience doesn't mind a 4-and-a-half-minute lecture to your friend's kid, and they have a high tolerance for pretentiousness, go for it.
Really, I got nothin'. All my songs about newborns are about how tasty goblins think they are.

This may have already been suggested (can't see the vids at this time) but Creed's "With Arms Wide Open" is pretty much exactly what you've asked for.

It's a baby. Just play anything, it's not gonna really care. Save yourself the effort and just shake a rattle toy in front of the mic.

Um...no, I'm not. And I wouldn't be even if you shoved a gun in my face and told me I had to.

You're right, I didn't read closely enough. Thank you for you courteous and polite mention of that...
