YIDDISH / POLISH / ENGLISH

// Szlof majn fejgele (Yiddish - Polish transcription)

Szlof majn fejgele,
mach cu dajn ejgele,
szlof majn kind, szlof!
Mach cu dajn ejgele,
majn tajer fejgele,
szlof, majn kind, szlof!

A malech a gutter (giter)
wet/ZOL zajn dajn hiter
fun hajnt biz morgn fri!
Mit zajn fligele
iber dajn wigele
dekt er sztil dich cu (ci)!

Szlof in frejdn,
wejs fun kejn lejdn,
szlof, majn tajer kind!
Szlof in frejdn,
wejs fun kejn lejdn,
szlof zich ojs gezunt (gezint)!


// Śpij ptaszyno

Śpij ptaszyno,
zamknij oczka.
Śpij, dziecino, śpij!
Zamknij oczka,
ma ptaszynko.
Śpij, dziecino, śpij!

Niech cię dobry
anioł strzeże
aż po nocy kres.
Cicho skrzydłem
nad kołyską
opatuli cię.

Śpij mi błogo,
nie znaj troski,
śpij, dziecino, śpij!
Śpij mi błogo,
nie znaj troski,
niech ci dobrze się sny!


// Sleep, My Little Bird

Sleep, my little bird,

close your tired eyes.

Sleep, my baby, sleep!

Close your tired eyes,

my little bird, my child.

Sleep, my baby, sleep!

May a good angel

guard your cradle

'till the morning comes.
With his quiet wings,

he'll wrap you in your sleep,

he won't make a sound.

Sleep, sleep safe and sound,

may no one do you harm.

Sleep, my dearest child!

Sleep, sleep safe and sound,

may no one do you harm.

Sleep, be well, my child!
