Songfacts®:

  • Paul Weller explained: "It's the song I play to the kids to make them fall asleep! (laughs). I dip in and out of all sorts of music. I don't see genres - you just listen to different things at different times. This was inspired by my interest in (French Composers) Eric Satie, Debussy and an English composer called William Walton."
  • "Fur Kinder" is German for "For Children."
