Nani, nani, puiul mami
(Nani, nani, mother’s little baby)

Romanian lullaby from Oltenia

Nani, nani, puiul mamii,
Nani, nani, puiul mamii,
Puişorul mamii mic,
Facete-ai, maică, voinic.

Nani, nani, puiul mamii,
Nani, nani, puiul mamii,
Frumuşel şi voinicel,
Mândru ca un stejerel.

Nani, nani, puiul mamii,
Nani, nani, puiul mamii,
Puiul mamii, puişor,
Dormi, puiule, dormi uşor.
Nani, nani, your mother’s little baby
Nani, nani, your mother’s little baby
Tiny baby of thy mother
I wish you be strong

Nani, nani, your mother’s little baby
Nani, nani, your mother’s little baby
Cute and strong
Proud as a young oak

Nani, nani, your mother’s little baby
Nani, nani, your mother’s little baby
Baby of thy mother, tiny baby
Sleep my baby, peacefully sleep
