English translation of this song:


Go to sleep, little girl
A star there is blinking at you
I'll sew you a little dress
Blue with gold

I'll take blue from the sky
Gold from the sun
For my girl with the beautiful eyes
An embroidered dress

There the moon is rising
It is rising and shining
And the rays it sends
I'll add to your little dress

Go to sleep little girl
Go to sleep, go to sleep, go to sleep
Mummy'll embroider you your little dress
And will sing you songs all the while
