Shlof mayn kind, mayn kind, mayn sheyner,

A Sibirnik iz dayn tate,

Bai dayn vigl zitst dayn mame,

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...

Moj synok vsekh krashe v mire -
Ogonjok vo t'me.
Tvoj otec v cepjakh v Sibiri,
Derzhit car' jego v tjur'me!
Spi, lju-lju, lju-lju!

Kolybel' tvoju kachaja,
Mama sljozy l'jot.
Sam pojmjosh' ty podrastaja,
Chto jej serdce zhzhjot.

Tvoj otec v Sibiri dal'nej,
Ja nuzhdu terplju.
Spi pokuda bespechal'no, a,
Lju-lju, lju-lju, lju-lju!

Skorb' moja cherneje nochi,
Spi, a ja ne splju.
Spi, khoroshij, spi, synochek, spi,
Lju-lju, lju-lju, lju-lju.
