Wiegala

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wiegala, wiegala, weier,
der Wind spielt auf der Leier.
Er spielt so süß im grünen Ried,
die Nachtigall, die singt ihr Lied.
Wiegala, wiegala, weier,
der Wind spielt auf der Leier.
 
Wiegala, wiegala, werne,
der Mond ist die Lanterne,
er steht am dunklen Himmelszelt
und schaut hernieder auf die Welt.
Wiegala, wiegala, werne,
der Mond ist die Lanterne.
 
Wiegala, wiegala, wille,
wie ist die Welt so stille!
Es stört kein Laut die süße Ruh,
schlaf, mein Kindchen, schlaf auch du.
Wiegala, wiegala, wille,
wie ist die Welt so stille!

Beddy‑bye

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Beddy-bye, beddy-bye, bire,
the wind plays on the lyre.
He's playing sweetly in the reeds,
the nightingale sings in the meads.
Beddy-bye, beddy-bye, bire,
the wind plays on the lyre.

Beddy-bye, beddy-bye, blantern,
the moon, she is a lantern,
she looks from heaven's tent up high
a twinkle in her tired eye.
Beddy-byes, beddybyes, plantern,
the moon, she is a lantern.

Beddy-bye, beddy-bye, blying,
the world in stillness lying!
No sound disturbs your peace and rest,
my baby, huddle in your nest.
Beddy-byes, beddybyes, blying,
the world in stillness lying!
