Thanks to Dallas Clayton for sending over this sweet and tender little lullaby, featuring Binki Shapiro of Little Joy fame, Jason Boesel of Rilo Kiley/the Mystic Valley Band, and others, inspired by Dr. Seuss' "Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?" Dallas says:

"A few years ago I was putting together a small kids album for my son and I asked a bunch of my friends to record some songs. As tends to happen I got about half way through before being taken away by more pressing projects. The other day I unearthed this track, which I thought might be nice to share with the world..."
