lyrics

YIDDISH / POLISH / ENGLISH

//Lejg dajn kop (Yiddish - in Polish transcription)

Lejg dajn kop ojf majne kni,
gut azoj cu lign;
kinder szlofn ajn alejn,
grojse darf men wign.

Kinder hobn szpilechlech –
szpiln wen zej wiln:
grojse szpiln nor mit zich,
muzn ejbik szpiln.

Ongewejnt un ongeklogt –
ch’wel dir ict farwign;
lejg dajn kop ojf majne kni,
gut azoj cu lign.


// Złóż głowę

Na kolanach głowę złóż,
dobrze tak zasypiać.
Dzieci same idą spać,
dużych - ukołysać.

Dzieci mają mnóstwo gier,
bawią się gdy chcą.
Duzi grają w jedną grę,
grają wciąż ze sobą.

Wypłakane oczy twe,
ja cię ukołyszę.
Na kolanach moich leż,
dobrze tak zasypiać.


// Lay your head

Lay your head down on my knee,
lie a little while.
Children sleep so easily,
grown-ups need some lulling.

Children have their many toys,
they can play at will.
Grown-ups play their little game,
play incessantly.

Dry your eyes and no more tears
Let me soothe your heart
Lay your head down on my knee
It’s good to sleep like that
