Thread Name: Poems of A.A.Milne Set to Music/Christopher Robin
Subject: RE: Poems of A.A.Milne Set to Music

I know of two others, the first being "Christopher Robin is saying his prayers". It was definately released on record and used to be played on the radio when I was a kid, (we're talking about 25 years ago. It started,

"Little boy kneels at the foot of the bed,

Droops on his little hands, little ?brown head,

Hush, hush, whisper, who dares?

Christopher Robin is saying his prayers."

It goes on with him doing the whole God bless Mummy, God bless Daddy routine, then his mind starts to ramble. Nice song.

The other is "Half way up the stairs," which you should be able to find on any good Muppet LP, (or is that a contradiction in terms?!)

I remeber it being sung by Robin, (Kermit's nephew), as he sat, surprisingly enough, halfway up the stairs.
