0009 Cradle Song – Dekker (1603)

Thomas Dekker

Thomas Dekker

Cradle Song, also known as Golden Slumbers, is a lullaby written by the dramatist Thomas Dekker. It first appeared in the comedy Patient Grissel in 1603. The original poem goes:

Golden slumbers kiss your eyes,
Smiles awake you when you rise;
Sleep, pretty wantons, do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby,
Rock them, rock them, lullaby.

Care is hevy, therefore sleep you,
You are care, and care must keep you;
Sleep, pretty wantons, do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby,
Rock them, rock them, lullaby.

Paul McCartney used some of the lyrics in The Beatles’ 1969 song Golden Slumbers from the album Abbey Road.
