Help me pick out songs to sing and play on the guitar for my soon-to-be-born son.

My first son will be born in 2 months. I have played guitar for over 20 years, but don't know or play a lot of songs. I want to learn some songs that would be:
- Fun, stimulating for a baby.
- Easy for me to sing. I have a fairly limited vocal range, close to the 2 octaves between the low and high E strings on a standard tuned guitar.
- In simple English, as I will be in charge of teaching him that half of his expected bilingualism, this should be a part of it
- Memorable, a sort of keepsake if you will.
My tastes are fairly wide, from rock to country to folk to trip hop. Available guitars are nylon and steel acoustics and an electric.
