Golden slumbers fill your eyes
Smiles awake you when you rise
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullabye

Your dog reminds me of Anubis, the Egyptian god. What's his name?

cariadus says:

TOH, thank you. Obviously the HL fairies listened to you. Thank you HL fairies :)

Twiglet, :)

Taroma, his name is Tim, short for Timber Lad. Greyhounds do look a little like Egyptian dogs, could be descendants I suppose.

Crickson, thanks :)

Viv, thanks. I think McCartney based the song on Dekker's 'Cradle Song' but I believe the words aren't quite the same?

AF, thanks. Thought you might appreciate the verse :) And thanks for the fave.

Caine, thanks :)

Wendle, thanks.

Viv, I think McCartney changed the music too, don't know how it compares with the original. Dekker's lullaby is also a little similar to Blake's poem, also called Cradle Song. The medley on side 2 of Abbey Road is one of my all time favourite pieces of music.

Rhys & SLG, thanks.

I've been listening to Abbey Road a lot lately, with it being the 40th anniversary of their break-up and all. Also takes me back to college and listening to Abbey Road while...umm... not entirely sober ;)

SLG says:

"not entirely sober"! what's that then ? ;p

*Looks innocent
Let's just say it wasn't alcohol induced (not on that occasion anyway). Those guitar twirls in In The End were like catherine wheels going off in the brain :)
