Shlof mayn kind, mayn kind, mayn sheyner,
shlof mayn zunenyu!
A Sibirnik iz dayn tate,
shlof lyu-lyu-lyu...

Bai dayn vigl zitst dayn mame,
zingt a lid un veint,
du vest dos farshteyn mistome
vos zi hot gemeynt!

Vayt iz in Sibir dayn tate,
shlof mayn zunenyu!
Du bist yung nokh, shlof leysate,
ay, lyu-lyu-lyu...

Mayne tzores zaynen azoy groys,
shlof mayn zunenyu!
Shlof main zun, main kind, main voyles,
lyu-lyu-lyu...
