SONGS :


  • Golden Slumbers  "is a song by the Beatles, part of the climactic medley on their 1969 album Abbey Road...
    "Golden Slumbers" is based on the poem "Cradle Song", a lullaby by the dramatist Thomas Dekker.
     The poem appears in Dekker's 1603 comedy Patient Grissel..." 

    Golden slumbers kiss your eyes,
    Smiles awake you when you rise.
    Sleep pretty wantons, do not cry,
    And I will sing a lullaby;
    Rock them, rock them, lullaby.
    Care is heavy, therefore sleep you;
    You are care, and care must keep you.
    Sleep pretty wantons, do not cry,
    And I will sing a lullaby;
    Rock them, rock them, lullaby."
