Thread Name: Origins: Pataphysical Lullaby (Ray Nelson)
Subject: Origins: Pataphysical Lullaby
My wife taught me a lullaby some forty years ago and we have been singing it to kids of our own and others since then. She says she learned it from Ray Nelson, a science fiction writer in the Bay Area.
I can't reproduce the tune, but the lyrics start out:
Sunrise in the morning Does anyone know this song besides the two us and the kids we sung it to?
Moonrise in the evening
Star rise while my baby's asleep....
