English Translation – Sleep

Sleep, my little child,
Sleep,
Your mommy’s here, my little squirrel,
By your crib, my little pretty,
Sleep, my little child
Sleep.

Sleep, my little child,
Sleep,
Your mommy’s here, my little lamb,
Singing her little song to you,
Sleep, my little child,
Sleep.

Sleep, my little child
Sleep,
Before, she wept a lot,
But today, your mommy laughs,
Sleep, my little child,
Sleep.

Sleep, my little child,
Sleep,
Sleep, my poor little one,
Time’s come to close your little eyes,
Sleep, my little child,
Sleep.

Sleep, my little child,
Sleep,
Sleep, my wee one,
You must rest your little head,
Sleep, my little child,
Sleep.
