Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Goodnight Mr Moon
Hi, my grandpa used to sing this to me when I was little. I've always wanted to find out more about the song/lullaby as its a precious memory to me of him.. and onedayyy id like to pass it on to my children in memory of him. I can't remember the version that he used to sing and can only vaguely remember the tune which saddens me, but thanks to this site Iv deffinatly come close to re-discovering. It's strange how Goodnight Mr moon seems to have been forgotten about, perhaps it was a lullaby from my grandfathers generation, perhaps something related to the war? Would be so interesting to find out more about it before the lullaby dies out completley. My grandpa was from northamptonshire and was a policeman. If somebody knows more about the history of Goodnight Mr Moon, please share!! Thanks :)
