Wiegenlied für das Püppchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Schlafe mein Püppchen, schlafe,
Sonne ging zur Ruh'
Und der Tag macht leise
Seine Augen zu.
Su, su, su, su, su, su, su,
Schlafe mein Püppchen, schlaf' ein;
Su, su, su, su, su, su, su, su, su, su, su.

Schlafe mein Püppchen, schlafe,
Draussen heult der Wind
Und im Schnee begraben
Alle Strassen sind.

Von dem Kirchenthurme
Schlägt die Uhr schon sieben,
Balde werd' ich selber
In das Bett getrieben.
Su, su, su, su, su, su, su,
Schlafe mein Püppchen, schlaf' ein;
Su, su, su, su, su, su, su, su, su, su, su.

Dolly's lullaby

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Sleep now my dolly, sleep.
See the sun is gone,
And from Heav'n the darkness
Softly's falling down.
So, so, so, so, so, so, so,
Sleep now my dolly, sleep sweet,
So, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so.

Sleep my dolly, sleep.
Hear the bad wind blow.
All the streets are buried
Under heaps of snow.

Sev'n the clock is striking
From the old church steeple,
Time to tuck in bed safe,
All good little people.
So, so, so, so, so, so, so,
Dolly, oh please go to sleep.
So, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so.
