New Acquisition: "Cry Baby Cry" Handwritten Lyric
The newest acquisition by PMAC is truly one of a kind. John Lennon's handwritten lyrics to the song, "Cry Baby Cry" featured on the White Album.
Demos indicate that Lennon composed the song in late 1967. The original lyrics were "Cry baby cry, make your mother buy." Lennon described to biographer Hunter Davies how he got the words from an advertisement. Some of the lyrics of the song are loosely based on the nursery rhyme "Sing a Song of Sixpence".
