Thread Name: Tune Req: The Man in the Moon (J. R. R. Tolkien)
Subject: RE: Tune Req: Tolkien's 'The Man in the Moon'
The tune of Old Mother Hubbard is similar to that of Hey Diddle Diddle. It would appear that Tolkien's poem provides the "back story" to that nursery rhyme, so why not adapt that tune in the way that Greenjack suggests? I can post a MIDItext here if you're not familiar with it.
