Yiddish text

Schlof mayn kind, mayn treyst, mayn sheyner,
schlof zhe zunenyu,
schlof mayn lebn, mayn kadish eyner,
schlof zhe lyu, lyu, lyu.

Bay dayn vigl zitst dayn mame,
zingt a lid un veynt.
Du vestamol farshteyn misame,
vos zi hot gemeynt.

Er vet shikn tsvantsig doler,
zayn portret dertsu,
un vet nemen, lebn zol er!
Undz ahin tsu tsu.

Er vet chapn undz un kushn,
tantsn azh far freyd!
Ich vel kvaln trern gisn,
veynen shtilerheyt.

Bis es kumt dos gute kvitl,
schlof zhe zunen yu.
Schlofn iz a tayer mitl,
schlof zhe, lyulyulyu.
