"Can't Fall Asleep To A Lullabye" Handwritten Lyrics
Posted on: 08/16/2020 01:21 PM

Ever wonder why "Can't Fall Asleep To A Lullabye" from "Perspective" is spelled with an "e" on the end of "lullaby"? Was it merely a misspelling by the record company or something else? The link below helps uncover why. Also, it's interesting to see what some of the lyrics originally were.

I can recognize Dewey's handwriting. On the bottom on the first page, he wrote:

"I need ____ and ____
By my side"

I don't believe the above lyrics made it to the finished product.

Also, that's Dewey's handwriting on the bottom portion of the second page starting with "____ crowd"

The song as we know from the credits as stated on the album cover/sleeve/label were co-written by Dewey, Steve Perry, Bill Mumy and Robert Haimer. Who is the seller on eBay of these handwritten lyrics?

Remember someone in the past offering up for sale Dan's personal letter to Gerry asking why he decided to call off a reunion? As one may remember, putting it up for sale on eBay infuriated Dan's older brother Tom and rightfully so. Although I may be wrong, I believe the seller is one of the song's cowriters and is the same person who put up for sale Dan's letter to Gerry.

P.S. Just for the record, I want to say that I DON'T believe the seller is Dewey! Just wanted to make that very clear!!!

Dewey is quite the pack rat regarding America memorabilia as evidenced by his contributions to the "Highway - 30 Years of America" box set. I really have to wonder how this individual came into possession of these hand written lyrics.

I think it was given to the seller by one of the co-writers of the song. And, as you said, "Dewey is quite the pack rat regarding America memorabilia...."
