9 dreamy lullabies gently accompany your children to sleep

Children often need a good sleep aid on their school days. For some, a sweet story helps sleep to read or an audio story. Babies and young children in particular sleep slowly when mom or dad sings something. Here are 9 German and English lullabies that are easy to sing and will lead your children to sweet dreams.

#1 Lullabies: No Lo Lo

no lo lo
Only the man on the moon is watching
When little children sleep
You sleep too

no lo lo
There are two shoes in front of the bed
They are so tired
Now go to rest

Then comes the hypnotist
Enter the house quietly
Searches of his dreams
you are the most beautiful

no lo lo
Only the man on the moon is watching
When little children sleep
You sleep too

Are all stars
wake up in the sky
Then I like to sing
A song for you at night

no lo lo
Only the man on the moon is watching
When little children sleep
You sleep too

Music and lyrics: Heino Gaze

#2 Lullabies: Sleep a little sleep

Baby sleep sleep!
The father takes care of the sheep
The mother shakes the little tree,
Little dream falls.
Baby sleep sleep!

Baby sleep sleep!
Draw sheep in the sky:
Little stars are little lambs,
The moon is the shepherd.
Baby sleep sleep!

Baby sleep sleep!
So I’ll give you a lamb
fine golden bell,
It must be your playmate.
Baby sleep sleep!

Baby sleep sleep!
And do not drown like a sheep:
Otherwise the little sheepdog will come
And bite my evil little boy.
Baby sleep sleep!

Baby sleep sleep!
Go away and take care of the sheep
Go away you little black dog
And don’t wake up my little boy!
Baby sleep sleep!

Music and text: Johann Friedrich Richardt

#3 Lullabies: The moon has risen

moon shone,
Little golden stars shine
Bright and clear in the sky.
The forest stands black and silent,
And rises from the meadows
Gorgeous white fog.

How is the world so calm?
In the twilight shell
Very sweet and very sweet!
like a silent room
Where are you miserable today
You must sleep and forget.

Do you see the moon there?
It’s only half visible
However it is round and beautiful!
Some things are like this
who laugh with confidence,
Because our eyes do not see them.

We are proud of human children
They are poor sinners in vain
I don’t know much.
We spin air spiders
She seeks many arts
And away from the target.

God let us see your salvation
Trust anything ephemeral,
It is not vanity that satisfies us!
let’s be simple
And kiss you here on earth
Be pious and cheerful like children!

You finally want to be sad
Get us out of this world
Nice die!
And if you take us
Let’s go to heaven
You are our God and our God!

So lie down, brothers,
In the name of God down;
Cool evening breeze.
Forgive us, God! with penalties
And let’s sleep in peace!
And our sick neighbor too!

Text: Matthias Claudius, music: Johann Abraham Peter Schulz

#4 Lullabies: Little Flowers, They Are Asleep

Little flowers, they are sleeping
Already in the moonlight,
They nodded their heads
on their legs.
flower tree vibrates
An obsession like a dream.
sleep sleep
Sleep, my little boy.

The little birds sang
So sweet in the sunlight
They have gone to rest
in their small nests.
Cricket house in an ear of corn
manifested alone.
sleep sleep,
Sleep, my little boy.

Sandman sneaks
And looking through the little window,
If there is another child
I don’t like being in bed.
And where he found only one child,
Sand casts in his eyes.
sleep sleep,
Sleep, my little boy.

Sandman, out of the room!
My love sleeps peacefully.
So it’s tightly locked
Already a flash-eye.
Shines me tomorrow, welcome
Very pious little eye.
sleep sleep,
Sleep, my little boy.

Text: Anton Wilhelm von Zuckalmaglio

#5 Lullabies: Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Somewhere on the road a rainbow high
There is a land I once heard about in a lullaby
Somewhere over a blue rainbow sky
And the dreams you dare to dream really come true

Someday I will wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where problems dissolve like lemon drops
Far above the chimney tops where you’ll find me

Somewhere over the blue rainbow birds are flying
Birds fly over the rainbow so why then why can’t I?

Someday I will wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where problems dissolve like lemon drops
Far above the chimney tops, where (where) you will find me (you will find)

Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds are flying
Birds fly over the rainbow so why then why can’t I?
(why oh why yeah yeah)

If blue birds fly (if blue birds fly) over a rainbow, why can’t I?

Lyrics: EY Harburg Music: Harold Arlen

#6 lullabies: twinkle, twinkle a little star

Twinkle, twinkle, and the little star,
How do you wonder what you are.
Above the world so high,
Like diamonds in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, and the little star,
How do you wonder what you are.

When the glorious sun goes down,
And the grass with wet dew,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all night long.
Twinkle, twinkle, and the little star,
How do you wonder what you are.

When the golden sun rises,
Fills the sky with bright light,
and then fade out of sight,
No more sparkle until nightfall.
Twinkle, twinkle, and the little star,
How do you wonder what you are.

Text: Jane Taylor

#7 Lullabies: Who has the most beautiful sheep?

Who has the most beautiful sheep?
golden moon for them
who is behind our trees
Live in the sky above.

Come late in the evening
When everyone wants to sleep
outside his house
Quiet and still in the sky.

Then he grazes the sheep
on its blue lane.
Because all the white stars
They are just superstitious.

They don’t hurt themselves
one loves the other
And they are sisters and brothers
star upon star there.

Shall I bring you one?
So you should never scream
You must be friendly like sheep
And be like shepherds.

Text: Hoffmann von Wallersleben

#8 Lullabies: All the beautiful little horses

Silence, bye, don’t cry
Go to sleep, little child
When you wake up, you will have a cake
And all the beautiful little horses
Blacks, bays, chips, and grays
A coach and six white horses

Silence, bye, don’t cry
Go to sleep, little child
Road down there, down in the meadow
There’s a poor little lamby
Bees and butterflies flutter around his eyes
He’s crying out for his mother

Silence, bye, don’t cry
Go to sleep, little child
When you wake up, you will have a cake
And all the beautiful little horses
Blacks, bays, chips, and grays
A coach and six white horses
Blacks, bays, chips, and grays
All the beautiful little horses

Silence, bye, don’t cry
Go to sleep, little child
Go to sleep, little child
All the beautiful little horses

Origin: Traditional American Lullaby. Lyrics: Dorothy Scarborough

#9 Lullabies: Baby Fall Asleep

My little kids sleep because the little stars are coming. And the moon swims again. Little child, little child, go to sleep, little children, go to sleep!

Little children, go to sleep, for the night is coming. The wind issues its lullabies to the child. Little child, my little child, go to sleep, little children, go to sleep.

My little children, go to sleep, a little bird is flying from the tree. Fly quickly to my child, sing to him in dreams. Little child, my little child, go to sleep, little children, go to sleep.

Origin: Originally from the Czech Republic

It is better if you sing songs by yourself by the bedside. Because your child knows your voice and calms down because of it. You can pet her and hold her hand. Sleep support is really important, and not just for a sleep problem. As a parent, you must take the time to do so. Because as much as a child finishes his day, he can start again the next morning. By the way, you can find many of the above songs on these CDs.
