Sing a Song

German Lullaby

Sleep, baby, sleep
Thy father tends the sheep
Thy mother shakes the dreamland tree
And down fall pleasant dreams for thee
Sleep, baby, sleep
Sleep, baby, sleep
Sleep, baby, sleep
Our cottage vale is deep
The little lamb is on the green
With snowy fleece so soft and clean
Sleep, baby, sleep
Sleep, baby, sleep
Hush, my babe, and do not cry
In your cradle now you swing,
Until you sleep,
I’ll softly sing,
