Subject: Lullaby; The MoonMan
From: Uncle Jaque
Date: 08 Jan 01 - 01:14 AM

Heard Jean Redpath sing this apparantly Celtic lullaby a long time ago and rather admired it - can't seem to find it on the DB and don't remember quite all or it though.

Starts out:

"Zoon, Zoon, cuddle and croon
out o're the wrinklin' sea;
The Moonman casts his silvery net,
Fashioned from moonbeams three.
And the tide rolls out
And the waves roll in;
Balmy the night winds blow;
And why that old Moonman still fishes the sea,
Only the Moonman knows."

The rest of the lyrics and guitar chords would be appreciated; I've got the tune pretty well in me head. It's a pretty one.

Thanks!

Here's all the words. I won't be able to help you with the melody:

Zoom, Zoom, cuddle and croon, Down by the wrinkling sea,
The moon man casts with a silvery net, fashioned from moonbeams three,
And some folks say when the net lies long, and the midnight hour is ripe,
The moon man fishes for some old song that fell from a sailor's pipe.

CHO: Well the waves roll out and the waves roll in,
And the nodding night winds blow,
But why the moon man fishes the sea,
Only the moon man knows.

Zoom, zoom, cuddle and croon, down by the wrinkling sea,
The moon casts with his silvery net, fashioned from moonbeams three,
And some folks say when the net lies long, and no one else is nigh,
The moon man fishes for the baby stars that fall from the slippery sky.

Zoom, zoom, cuddle and croon, down by the wrinkling sea,
The moon man casts with his silvery net, fashioned from moonbeams three,
And some folks say when the net lies long, and no one else is there,
The moon man fishes for the silvery comb that falls from a mermaid's hair.

This was a signature song of Walt Robertson, THE WANDER. B. Buck Ritchie was a radio, stage character in the Seattle area in the 1940 - 50's. I believe he adapted this song from a Eugene fields poem. CHEERS

MOON SONG

Zoon, zoon, cuddle and croon--
Over the crinkling sea,
The moon man flings him a silvered net
Fashioned of moonbeams three.

And some folk say when the net lies long
And the midnight hour is ripe;
The moon man fishes for some old song
That fell from a sailor's pipe.

And some folk say that he fishes the bars
Down where the dead ships lie,
Looking for lost little baby stars
That slid from the slippery sky.

And the waves roll out and the waves roll in
And the nodding night wind blows,
But why the moon man fishes the sea
Only the moon man knows.

Zoon, zoon, net of the moon
Rides on the wrinkling sea;
Bright is the fret and shining wet,
Fashioned of moonbeams three.

And some folk say when the great net gleams
And the waves are dusky blue,
The moon man fishes for two little dreams
He lost when the world was new.

And some folk say in the late night hours,
While the long fin-shadows slide,
The moon man fishes for cold sea flowers
Under the tumbling tide.

And the waves roll out and the waves roll in
And the gray gulls dip and doze,
But why the moon man fishes the sea
Only the moon man knows.

Zoon, zoon, cuddle and croon--
Over the crinkling sea,
The moon man flings him a silvered net
Fashioned of moonbeams three.

And some folk say that he follows the flecks
Down where the last light flows,
Fishing for two round gold-rimmed "specs"
That blew from his button-like nose.

And some folk say while the salt sea foams
And the silver net lines snare,
The moon man fishes for carven combs
That float from the mermaids' hair.

And the waves roll out and the waves roll in
And the nodding night wind blows,
But why the moon man fishes the sea
Only the moon man knows.

I searched some Jean Redpath CD's and didn't find it at CD Now. If she recorded it, I would really like to hear it. There is a singer on mp3.com, Terry Grosvenor, who has written childrens music, adapting poems from Lewis Carroll, James Whitcomb Riley, and others. She includes the poem "Johnny Fife and Johnny's Wife", by Mildred Plew Meigs. I didn't see Moon Song on her page. I searched CD Now for Moon Man and Moon Song. Didn't find anything that matched the poem, yet. Maybe we need to track down the Seattle performer?

Hi, I'm probably the 'Seattle performer' you're referring to. I'm Bob Nelson, Everett. My e-mail is deckman@earthlink.net. I REALLY think this was taken from Eugene Fields work. "Buck Ritchie" was an early T.V. character in Seattle. He was a western singer, mostly cornball, except for this magnificant song he put together for his children. I got to know him when I was a teenager. Walt Robertson, legendary singer from these parts, performed on his show several times, and got the song from B. Buck Ritchie (the "B" stood for butterfat!) To my knowledge, it's not been recorded by Walt, but maybe Don Firth can jump in here and correct me. This is a precious lullaby. CHEERS, Bob

Bob,

An advanced search at http://www.google.com locates the site http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0688081606/ at which the page says MOON SONG was by Mildred Plew Merryman.

The site at http://www.wenaus.com/poetry/moonsong.html says it is written by Mildred Plew Meigs. A search on the name Meigs brings up lots of poetry sites.

Many of Field's poems were put to music, and I think Bob is thinking of "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod", which is by Eugene Field. Lots of sites have that poem also, including http://users.sedona.net/~imboo/poetry/field1.html.

John Dwyer put Field's "The Little Peach" to music many years ago. Another bedtime favorite is Field's "Little Boy Blue."

Being totally clueless, I am therefore an expert.

'Twould appear that the poem was written by By Mildred Plew Meigs (I probably followed Maggie through cyberspace, stepping on her heels without being aware of it) and subsequently discovered by B. Buck Butterball Ritchie, who put it to music. I don't really know, but it seems logical. That sort of thing happens a lot.

The tune, at least the one I learned from Walt Robertson, was written by B. B. B. Ritchie. I would be most curious to know if the tune Jean Redpath sings is the same one. If not . . . that sort of thing happens occasionally, too. Two diffent people discover the same poem, each one writes a tune for it, and there you are. I think that's what may have happened with William Butler Yeats's Song of the Wandering Aengus. I learned it from a fellow named Dick Adams back in the late Fifties, then Judy Collins (I think it was Judy Collins) recorded it some years later, and credits the tune to someone other than Dick Adams. The tunes are awfully close, but especially with that poem, it's likely that more than a couple people have taken a crack at it.

Here's to confusion. It leads us to rummage through the resources and learn.

Alice,

It looks like Mildred had a name change at some point, hence some confusion. And Eugene Field added to the mix. What a subversive field we're discussing, lullabies--gentle songs with the message "be quiet and go to sleep!"

(Second try--the browser seems a tad touchy this morning).

Alice,

I'll try to put the tune I learned from Walt Robertson into a MIDI file. I'm still in the process of learning to use NoteWorthy Composer, and I'll need to check with Bob (Deckman) Nelson to make sure I have it right, so it might take awhile (few days, maybe). Someone may have it ready to go and can get it to you before I can, but if not, have no fear, it's coming.

I'm curious to know what tune Jean Redpath uses.

Thanks for your post of 1:53 a.m., Jan 8th. I was so dead-sure that Buck Ritchie had written the whole thing that I just had to check it for myself. Sorry. You were right.

Y'know, I think that the tune is on Ed Trickett's first recording, The Telling Takes Me Home, on Folk Legacy. I'll check in a minute. I'm sure I heard Ed sing it, and it was on the same album as Sea Fever.
Now, I knew and loved the poem from when I was too small to know the words and what they meant. It was in the Childrens golden Book of Poetry (with the author listed as Mildred Plew Meigs) and with a lot of wonderful poetry, including my all time favorite, Custard the Cowardly Dragon, by Ogden Nash.
When I heard the tune Ed sang, I didn't like it. It was too major, and the poem to me was always mysterious. So I wrote my own. If any of you are interested in that one, I can post it. It's more modal.
Blessings,
Barbara

Thanks much for the Lyr., Mates!

These are more than I recall Jean REDPATH singing, although I have no problem remembering the lovely 3/4 tune, in a minor key I think.

If memory serves me correctly, she sang this live on a "Prarie Home Companion" Public Radio show with Garrison Keioller. I don't know if she ever recorded it or not.

"Wynken" et al. is another of my favorites, which I don't get to sing much any more; Daughter grew up!

I have a book of kid's songs somewhere from my "Ed Tech / Special Ed" days - a lot of fun stuff there. Performing that sort of thing for a bunch of little crumb-crunchers can be a hoot for sure, God Love 'em!!

Thanks to everyone!!

This thread solves a mystery for me (wish Vaughn was here to read it).
Lawrence Older - Adirondack traditional singer and incorrigible song sponge - learned this song from Jean Redpath. Both frequented Caffe Lena regularly many years ago. We learned it from Lawrence and his wife Martha, and taught it our own kids and to generations of kids and parents at Pinewoods Camp as a "going to bed song". It is now in our grandkids' repertoires.

I'll do a midi tonight or Monday. No guarantee that it is anything but our version, but I think it may be close to Jean's. Heck, it was only forty years ago.

Here is the original poem from which "Only the Moon Man Knows" was taken.


                      MOON SONG


Zoon, zoon, cuddle and croon—
Over the crinkling sea,
The moon man flings him a silvered net
Fashioned of moonbeams three.

And some folk say when the net lies long
And the midnight hour is ripe;
The moon man fishes for some old song
That fell from a sailor's pipe.

And some folk say that he fishes the bars
Down where the dead ships lie,
Looking for the lost little baby stars
That slid from a slippery sky.

And the waves roll out and the waves roll in
And the nodding night wind blows,
But why the moon man fishes the sea
Only the moon man knows.

Zoon, zoon, net of the moon
Rides on the wrinkling sea;
Bright is the fret and shining wet,
Fashioned of moonbeams three.

And some folks say when the great net gleams
And the waters are dusky blue,
The moon man fishes for two little dreams
He lost when the world was new.

And some folk say in the late night hours
While the long fin-shadows slide,
The moon man fishes for cold sea flowers
Under the tumbling tide.

And the waves roll out and the waves roll in
And the gay gulls dip and doze,
But why the moon man fishes the sea
Only the moon man knows.

Zoon, zoon, cuddle and croon—
Over the crinkling sea.
The moon man flings him a silvered net
Fashioned from moonbeams three.

And some folk say that he follows the flecks
Down where the last light flows,
Fishing for two round gold-rimmed "specs"
That blew from his button-like nose.




And some folk say while the salt sea foams
And the silver net lines snare,
The moon man fishes for carven combs
That float from the mermaids' hair.

And the waves roll out and the waves roll in
And the nodding night wind blows,
But why the moon man fishes the sea
Only the moon man knows.

Actually, after I heard someone sing it long ago, I sat down and wrote my own tune to it, because I loved this poem as a kid, and the other tune didn't evoke for me what the poem did.
Give me a bit and I'll see if I can write it out and post it.
The poem is in The Golden Treasury of Children's Verse, and was written by Margaret Pliew Miegs, if I recall right.

I remember hearing Buck play a recording of himself singing "The Moon Man" several times late at night on KVI when I was about 12 or 14 years old. I am 65 now so that must have been about 1955-57 or so. I still remember the tune and have sung it to my children and grandchildren over the years. There was a full moon tonight when I saw it I remembered the song and started singing it again. I never knew all the words exactly so I thought I would look on the internet and found this site. I also thought Buck wrote it. He had another of his songs he would also play but I can't remember it right now.

My Dad used to sing this song to us at bedtime. He found the lyrics for it in a magazine called Child Life published in November 1923. Dad had a copy of the original lyrics sent to him before the publisher went out of business and shared them with us as my sisters and I began our families. I am now going to share the lyrics and melody with my daughter, her husband and my first grandchild to carry on the tradition. I don't know where my Dad got the melody but he sang it to us when I was less than 5 in 1953, but it sounds somewhat like the recording Barbara has shared with us all.

Hello, just a note from northern Minnesota. My father, Dean Looper, and B Buck Ritchie collaborated together to write ''Only the Moon Man Knows.'' My dad does give full credit to the fact that B Buck finished it up and wrote most of the chords for it. I have one of only 54 records made by B Buck, himself, and one recording of Bonnie Guitar singing it in my father's studio in Seattle. Unfortunatley it's in litigation now and noone can record it legally--which I must say is a shame for children.

I learned this song from Walt Robertson in Vancouver BC around 50 years ago. Walt said he had learned it from Bonnie Guitar. Jean Redpath was also around about that time and she may well have learned it from Walt. I still sing the song occasionally. Last time was at me son's daycare a few years ago.
