Where does this lullaby come from?
The original melody and words were composed by Paul McCartney of the Beatles and featured on the White Album in 1968. I always loved the song and sang it to my children when they were babies. This version combines McCartney’s with additional lyrics I added, which evolved over the years of trying to get babies to sleep. Interestingly, a previous set of lyrics written by McCartney for this melody, was based on a ‘moon theme’. Perhaps his original intention was to compose a lullaby? However, he decided to change them to create a love song.
