Lullaby
by Sally Porter
Yiddish Version by Barry Davis


Mach tsu di eigelech
Un du vest koomen
Tsu yenem zissn land
Fun baley-khloymess

Avoo milch oon honik
Flissn tomid
Un dayn mameh
Hit dir op.

Farshpray dein fligelech
Faygele meins
Mein tochter sertseh
Mein klayn zingfaygele

Hayb oyf dein ponim
Aroyf tsoom himmel
Ich vel dich onkookn
Vee doo fleegst.

Gedenkshe (teirinke)
Az koomt der morgn
vet zein der tatte
Ahaym gefloygn

Dos land foon chloymess
mooztoo aveklozn
Dein eign zisser haym
vaystoo iz doh.
Close your eyes
And you shall go
To that sweet land
All dreamers know

Where milk and honey
Always flow
And mama
watches over you.

Spread your wings
My Fegele
My darling girl
My singing bird

Lift your face
Towards the sky
I will be watching
As you fly.

Remember dear
When morning comes
Your mama's here:
Fly home to me.

The land of dreams
Must let you go
Your own sweet home
Is here, you know.
