Thread Name: Tune Req: The Man in the Moon (J. R. R. Tolkien)
Subject: RE: Tune Req: Tolkien's 'The Man in the Moon'
I heard Ken Landsbury sing this at Stroud Singer's Club on Tuesday. He's been doing it for a number of years but I doubt he's ever written the tune down. It was, though, very similar to the nursery rhyme 'Old Mother Hubbard' with the fourth line stretched and then repeated - try it and see.
