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!

Ninna nanna
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Fai ninna, fai nanna, mio bimbo, lo sento
risuona la lira al soffiare del vento,
nel verde canneto risponde l'assolo
del canto dolce dell'usignuolo.
Fai ninna, fai nanna, mio bimbo, lo sento
risuona la lira al soffio del vento.
 
Fai ninna, fai nanna, gioia materna,
la luna è come una grande lanterna,
Sospesa in alto nel cielo profondo
volge il suo sguardo dovunque nel mondo.
Fai ninna, fai nanna, gioia materna,
la luna è come una grande lanterna.
 
Fai ninna, fai nanna, sereno riposa
dovunque la notte si fa silenziosa!
Tutto è quieto, non c'è più rumore,
mio dolce bambino, per farti dormire.
Fai ninna, fai nanna, sereno riposa
dovunque la notte si fa silenziosa!
