Beautific lullaby, for young and old.
Makes me feel warm, on a cold winter night.
Now it's time to say good night.

'Yes it is' and a John Lennon song for Ringo to sing, I believe.
It is indeed. Pretty sure Lennon said he wrote it as a lullaby for Julian. Then when they decided to record it, I think it was McCartney who particularly pulled for the super-syrupy, Mantovani style arrangement heard on the tune-- although Lennon might have been involved in that decision, too.

Imagine if The Beatles had been their last album, and that was the last track on that last album. Makes the tune sound kind of poignant to me.

Sang that tune to my little one when she was an infant...she now listens to it regularly when she beds down. It's her official lullaby and I'm sure the tradition will continue when she is old enough to have her own.
