Lullaby

This might surprise you from JD:

“Golden slumbers kiss your eyes
Smiles awake you when you rise
Sleep, pretty wanton, do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby.”

You all thought Paul McCartney wrote that, didn’t you?  In fact it was written by the English playwright and poet Thomas Dekker (1570 – 1632).

I wonder if he received any royalties?
