I need this on a Daily Basis

 From the book I'm currently reading, Daily Life in Ancient Mesopotamia:

Many other genres and uses of magico-religious rituals were available to the ancient Mesopotamians, such as the generic incantation for "reconciling a man's god or goddess with him" or incantations for calming a baby (emphasis mine)--"Let Mother Get Her Chores Done." The baby incantations revealed the themes and style of earlier lullabies.  pg. 211

But then they don't share the incantation.  I need it, especially if I want to get my outfit finished in time for the wedding! :P
