The Beatles Song Of The Day :”Little Child”

The Beatles Song of the Day is “Little Child.” “Little Child” is one side 1, track 4 of “With The Beatles.” “Little Child” was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney. It was just a knock off song.Paul has called it ‘an album filler.” It was never part of their live act. It took over twenty takes and three sessions go get it down. The element of this song that has always stuck with me the most is John’s harmonica. John Lennon: vocal, rhythm guitar and harmonica/ Paul McCartney: vocal, bass guitar and piano/ George Harrison: lead guitar/ Ringo Starr: drums. The song was recorded at Abbey Road on September 11th, 12th and October 3rd, 1963. Producer: George Martin.

“Little Child” {Lennon-McCartney}

Little child, little child Little child, won’t you dance with me?
I’m so sad and lonely
Baby take a chance with me
Little child, little child Little child, won’t you dance with me?
I’m so sad and lonely
Baby take a chance with me
If you want someone
To make you feel so fine
Then we’ll have some fun
When you’re mine, all mine
So come, come on, come on
Little child, little child
Little child, won’t you dance with me?
I’m so sad and lonely
Baby take a chance with me
When you’re by my side
You’re the only one
Don’t you run and hide
Just come on, come on
So come on, come on, come on
Little child, little child
Little child, won’t you dance with me?
I’m so sad and lonely
Baby take a chance with me
Baby take a chance with me
Baby take a chance with me
