lyrics

Shlof, shlof, shlof!
Der tate vet forn in dorf,
Vet er brengen an epele,
Vet zayn gezunt dos kepele!

Shlof, shlof, shlof!
Der tate vet forn in dorf,
Vet er brengen a nisele,
Vet zayn gezunt dos fisele!

Shlof, shlof, shlof!
Der tate vet forn in dorf
Vet er brengen an entele,
Vet zayn gezunt dos hentele!

Shlof, shlof, shlof!
Der tate vet forn in dorf,
Vet er brengen a yaykhele,
Vet zayn gezunt dos baykhele!

Shlof, shlof, shlof!
Der tate vet forn in dorf,
Vet er brengen a hezele,
Vet zayn gezunt dos nezele!

TRANSLATION:
Sleep, sleep, sleep!
Daddy will go to the village,
He will bring an apple
To make your little head strong!

Sleep, sleep, sleep!
Daddy will go to the village,
He will bring a little nut
To make your little feet strong!

Sleep, sleep, sleep!
Daddy will go to the village,
He will bring a little duck
To make your little hand strong!

Sleep, sleep, sleep!
Daddy will go to the village,
He will bring a little soup
To make your little belly strong!

Sleep, sleep, sleep!
Daddy will go to the village,
He will bring a little hare
To make your little nose strong!
