“Golden Slumbers” is a wonderful lullaby written by Thomas Dekker, an English Elizabethan dramatist. The song’s first edition was in 1603, and it is based on the poem “Cradle Song”, a lullaby that it was included in Dekker’s play Patient Grissel.
The Beatles used part of “Golden slumbers” in their song of the same name, although Paul McCartney claimed he composed it without ever having listened to the lullaby.
1. Golden slumbers kiss your eyes,
Smiles awake you when you rise;
Sleep, pretty baby, do not cry,
I will sing a lullaby.
2. Cares you know not, therefore sleep
While over you a watch I’ll keep
Sleep pretty darling, do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby.
