Lullaby lullaby
May sleep overtake him
May sleep overtake him
A very restful sleep
Lullaby lullaby o

May sleep overtake him
May it overtake the boy
The boy with a throat like a dove
Lullaby lullaby o

Lullaby lullaby
May sleep overtake him
Sleep of mother's son, in your cradle
So you may become a hero with wings
Lullaby lullaby o

Sleep oh mother's son
A handsome hero with wings
And may you resemble your father
Lullaby lullaby o
