Nuku nuku nurmilintu

Lyrics - Finnish

(Folk song from Finland)

Nuku, nuku nurmilintu,
Väsy, väsy, västäräkki.
Nuku nurmelle hyvälle,
Vaivu maalle valkialle.

Lintu tuopi liinahapaijan,
Haapana hyvän hamehen.
Kaskeloinen korvatyynyn,
Pääskynen peäalusen.

English Translation - Sleep, sleep meadow bird

Sleep, sleep meadow bird,
Tired, tired, wagtail.
Sleep well in the grass,
Drift into the white land.

The bird brought the linen shirt,
The dabbling duck, a good skirt.
The diving duck, a little pillow for the ear,
The swallow, a cushion.
