Čuči guli mozi bārni
(Drowse and sleep child)

Latvian lullaby

Čuči guli mozi bārni,
atis mōte vokorā.

Ka naatis vokorā,
atīs naktī mēnesi.

Ka naatis mēnesi,
atīs reita sauleitē.

Ka naatis sauleitē,
palyks smiļšu kaļneņā.
Drowse and sleep child,
mother will be back by evening.

If she’s not back by evening,
she’ll be back by moonlight.

If she’s not back by moonlight,
she’ll be back by dawn.

If she’s not back by dawn,
she’ll stay on the sandy hill.
