Nânez, binamêye poyète
(Sleep, my precious hen)

Walloon lullaby

Nânez, binamêye poyète
Nânez, binamé poyon

Y a s 'papa qu'èst èvôye a l fièsse
Rapwètrè dès bons crostilyons

Y a s' mama qu'èst èvôye è pwèce
Rapwètrè dèl sop’ à l'ognon
Sleep, my precious hen
Sleep, beloved chick

There’s your Papa who went to the feast
He’ll bring back yummy croustillons

There’s your Mama who went to church
She’ll bring back onion soup
