About the Song
Little Children was a song written by J. Leslie McFarland and Mort Shuman. It was recorded by Billy J. Kramer & The Dakotas which reached Number One in the UK Singles chart in March 1964, and Number 7 in the U.S. later the same year. The lyric concerns a man's entreaties to his girlfriend's young siblings not to reveal his courtship of their elder sister and to leave them alone. As such, it was a departure from the traditional love songs hitherto recorded by Kramer (sometimes supplied by Lennon & McCartney)[1]. When offered another Lennon and McCartney song for his next single by the manager of both groups, Brian Epstein, Kramer turned it down and chose instead Little Children after a search for suitable material from music publishers. Mort Shuman (November 12, 1936 - January 2, 1991) was an American singer, pianist and songwriter, best known as co-writer of many 1960s rock and roll hits,.    Download this sheet!
