Thread Name: Lyr Req: Goodnight Mr. Moon
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Goodnight Mr Moon
My Mother and Grandmother (b. 1904) used to sing this to me and my sister when we were little and I sang it to my daughter too.
The words we sing are exactly the same as Debbie Guest wrote them ("reply to thread" dated 30 Dec 07) but we sing another "Good night" after the final "Good night Mr Moon".
I have trawled the internet and haven't been able to find out who wrote it or sang it originally.
It is good to know that other people are still singing this lullaby.
