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!

Piano notes and music reading No language is easy to learn except for our mother tongue. Mother tongue is a language which we start learning as soon as we are conceived. But learning some other language can be difficult if you are really not into it. Piano Notes are written in a completely different language. Agreed that the characters in the piano notes are very artistic and beautiful but they are equally strange to beginners and newcomers. But here is one interesting fact.
