Shlof, Mayn Tokhter (Sleep, My Daughter)
Shlof mayn tokhter, sheyne, fayne
In dayn vigele
Kh'vel zikh zetzn lebn dir
Un zingen a lidele
Kh'vel dikh vign, lider zingen
Lulinke, mayn kind.
Pestest zikh un veynst
Un shlofn vilstu nit
Makhst dokh dayn farmaterter muter
Shmertzn mit dermit
Kh'vel dikh vign, lider zingen,
Lulinke, mayn kind
Sleep my good pretty daughter.
Sleep in your cradle
I will sit by your side and sing you a song
I will rock you in your cradle and sing you to sleep
Why are you being naught?
Why don't you go to sleep?
You makeyour tired mother suffer.
I will rock you in your cradle and sing you a song
