Tanja Solnik A Legacy of Lullabies
Lyrics

Numi, numi yaldati,
Numi, numi, nim.
Numi, numi k’tanati,*
Numi, numi, nim.

Aba halach la’avoda –
Halach, halach Aba.
Yashuv im tzeit halevana –
Yavi lach matana!

Numi, numi…

Aba halach el hakramim –
Halach, halach Aba.
Yashuv im tzeit ha cochavim –
Yavi lach anavim!

Numi, numi…

Aba halach el hapardes –
Halach, halach Aba.
Yashuv ba’erev im haruach –
Yavi, yavi tapuach!

Numi, numi…

Aba halach el hasadeh –
Halach, halach Aba.
Yashuv ba’erev im tz’lalim –
Yavi lach shibolim!

SLEEP, SLEEP

Sleep, sleep, my little girl.
Sleep, sleep.
Sleep, sleep, my little one,
Sleep, sleep.

Daddy’s gone to work –
He went, Daddy went.
He’ll return when the moon comes out –
He’ll bring you a present!

Sleep, sleep…

Daddy went to the vineyards –
He went, Daddy went.
He’ll return when the stars come out –
He’ll bring you grapes!

Sleep, sleep…

Daddy went to the orchard –
He went, Daddy went.
He’ll return in the evening with the wind –
He’ll bring an apple!

Sleep, sleep…

Daddy went to the field –
He went, Daddy went.
He’ll come back in the evening with the shadows –
He’ll bring you ears of grain!
