German Lullaby

The best part about this lullaby is that nobody knows, where it originated and around what time. It hat several reappearances over the course of history, dating back to the 18th century

In Iceland there is a lullaby called "sleep my little love". However the unnerving part is the backstory. In a play called "Fjalla-Eyvindur" the person singing this song is his wife Halla, who lulls their child to sleep before drowning it in Barnafoss waterfall.

Here the Philippines we have a lullaby that goes like this: "di nagmaliw ang dati kong araw Nang munti pang bata sa piling ni nanay Nais kong maulit ang awit ni inang mahal Awit ng pag-ibig habang ako'y nasa duyan Sana'y di nagmaliw ang dati kong araw Nang munti pang bata sa piling ni nanay Nais kong maulit ang awit ni inang mahal Awit ng pag-ibig habang ako'y nasa duyan Sa aking pagtulog na labis ang himbing Ang bantay ko'y tala, ang tanod ko'y bituin Sa piling ni nanay, langit ay buhay Puso kong may dusa sabik sa ugoy ng duyan Sana'y di nagmaliw ang dati kong araw Nang munti pang bata sa piling ni nanay Nais kong maulit ang awit ni inang mahal Awit ng pag-ibig habang ako'y nasa duyan Sa aking pagtulog na labis ang himbing Ang bantay ko'y tala, ang tanod ko'y bituin Sa piling ni nanay, langit ay buhay Puso kong may dusa sabik sa ugoy ng duyan Nais kong matulog sa dating duyan ko, inay Oh! inay" Which translates to: "my old days never faded When I was a child with my mother I want to repeat my dear mother's song A love song while I was in the cradle I hope my old day doesn't go away When I was a child with my mother I want to repeat my dear mother's song A love song while I was in the cradle In my sleep I was very sleepy My watchman is a star, my watchman is a star With mom, heaven is alive My heart aches anxiously for the swing of the cradle I hope my old day doesn't go away When I was a child with my mother I want to repeat my dear mother's song A love song while I was in the cradle In my sleep I was very sleepy My watchman is a star, my watchman is a star With mom, heaven is alive My heart aches anxiously for the swing of the cradle I want to sleep in my old cradle, mom Oh! mother" And if you still don't know the meaning, it literally means a child meeting their mother in heaven

Here in Egypt we have a lullaby that goes like "Go to sleep my darling, and I'll slaughter two pairs of pigeons for you" ... No wonder I was always so demotivated to go to sleep, the poor pigeons 😅 But usually we don't use lullabies but rather sleep stories, and traditional Egyptian sleep stories for kids are usually terrifying and include horrifying/disfigured monsters and villains that would check on us and murder/eat us in our sleep if we didn't brush our teeth for example 😅

We have one historical lullaby in Morocco , we used to sing it when we were kids but did not know what it meant, but later I relised that it has a tragic story "تك إشبيلة تيوليولا ما قتلوني ما احيوني من غير الكاس الي عطاوني" Which means in English "The road to Ishbilia (Seville), they will be back to it, they didn't kill me nor let me live except for the cup they gave me" This tells the story of the Andalusians who were kicked out and turtured by the Crusade most of them are Muslims of Arab Berber and Iberians, they were tortured, burnt alive cut to piece while being alive, splitting them half on larg pointed sticks, this torture led to 2 ways either they denounce Islam and stay, or die, some fleed to Morocco and neighboring countires, but the Majority of them are in Morocco, and some families still have the keys of their homes until now 💔 the heritage of this song is still sung by Moroccan kids 💔

My favourite lullaby as a Child was "die königskinder". It's about a prince and Princess who are in Love but can't reach each other because of the sea between them. So, Naturally the prince tries to swim to his Princess but drowns...once the Princess sees his Body she holds him and gives him One last Kiss and then dies of a broken Heart. But the Melody is nice....😅

@SenkoVT You're wrong, though. The Maikäfer version is the original, people just wrote a new, less traumatic text to the melody. Particularly the first two verses are replaced these days with the boring "Schlaf, Kindchen, schlaf/Der Vater hüt't die Schaf'", but the second two are still well known (sometimes replaced with a boring "Die Mutter schüttelt 's Bäumelein/'s fällt heraus ein Träumelein").

This made me remember a Brazilian lullaby from when I was a kid. For context, cuca is a creature from Brazilian folklore. The lyrics goes: Dorme neném Que a cuca vem pegar (Sleep baby, the cuca will come and get you) Papai foi pra roça e mamãe foi trabalhar (Daddy went farming and mommy went to work) This song always had me wondering who was actually singing it if the mother and the father aren't home, maybe the cuca is trying to get the baby but he is crying so she sings for him to sleep

Se lo do all’Uomo Nero, se lo tiene un anno intero. Se lo do al Bambin Gesù, se lo tiene e non ce lo da più.” And in English would be: “Lullaby, lullaby oh, Who do I give this baby to? If I give it to the Befana, he keeps it for a week. If I give it to the black man, he keeps it for a whole year. If I give it to Baby Jesus, he keeps it and doesn't give it to us anymore.”

And then there was my grandfather, that old dreamer. The text was too brutal for him so he wrote a new text. It went "Marienkäfer fliege, fliege in das Glück. Und wenn du es gefunden hast, dann komm zurück, und bring's mir mit." (Ladybug fly, fly into the fortune. And when you have found it, come back, and bring it with you to me) He didn't use it as a lullaby, though. His rule was that whenever we saw a ladybug we had to gently pick it up and lift it in the air on one finger. Then we would all sing the song as the ladybug took off. It was supposed to bring luck to all of us. Truly joyful and wholesome.

Lullabys with such texts were created in troubled times, in which any child who was old enough to understand and think about the meaning of the lyrics was already well aware that life is dangerous and people can die all the time. Especially young children, since child mortality was very high before the times of modern medicine. The lullaby is actually very soothing to a child that already is afraid, since the complete lyrics suggest that god will protect them and send his angels to watch over them while they sleep. Also, traditional nursery rhymes that playfully describe dangers are common in pretty much all pre-modern cultures. We tend to forget that it is a relatively new luxury to live in a society where we we actually have such a comparatively high chance to protect children from having to experience harm and death firsthand at a young age that sheltering them from even thinking and hearing about such things is even an option.

@Ankush Armo there's a reason sleep used to be called "the little death" (which now mostly refers to the feeling after an orgasm lmao). People a long time ago used to think of it as our soul leaving and entering the realm of the dead (dreams). Very few people actually believe any of that nowadays of course, but those kinds of things have a way of persisting in culture for centuries. Some tiny place way in the back of our brains carries this ancestral idea that falling asleep is like a taste of death. By some metrics, it kinda is.

That's nonsense. No child will overthink the text of a lullaby their mother sings to them. When the song was written "with god's will" was implied in everything people said. Because their risk of dying was much greater than ours is today (only in the first world sadly).

The most known Italian lullaby ("ninna nanna, ninna oh") traslate to: "Who will I give this baby to? I will give him to the boogeyman, Which will keeps him for a whole year. I will give him to the witch ("Befana"), Which will keeps him for a week. I will give him to his mom, And the baby go to sleep."

My favourite one is a bavarian lullaby, called "hinterm Häuserl" (behind the house) Here a little translation: Behind the house there flows a stream And in the stream there swims a fish Wanted to grab into the water Wanted to catch the fish, couldn't catch the fish So why are you even trying to catch a fish? It is of course faster than you And the water splashed and the sun laughed I still love it 😂

This reminds me of that one Polish lullaby my grandmother used to sing me, about a king, a princess and a page. It starts by saying their life is beautiful and peaceful and they love each other very much. Then it straight up says they all died by being eaten, each by a different animal. Then the kid finds out they were made out of candies, but ONLY AFTER having their heart wrecked by the image of people being eaten alive. A m a z i n g.

We have this lullaby from my country (Myanmar) where the lyrics say that if you don't go to sleep, a big cat will come and bite you. Here's how the song went, translated: Mate Htee Lar (name) shore~ Pick up a frog, please~ The stork is flying freely in front of you~ The night is dark and becoming, my daughter~ Sleep now~ Or the big cat will bite you~ Tomorrow morning when you wake up, you'll have to go to school~ Close your eyes~ May you dream sweet dreams~ Mate Htee Lar young snowfall~ My beauty-loving young daughter~ Something for you to wear when you go to school~ I'll pick a pretty flower for you~ I'll Ba Ga Koak (creating circles on both cheeks with Thanaka, a medicinal tree paste) for you~ Like the sun and moon on each side~ The circular wah-lone (a Burmese letter that looks like this: 'o') on your cheeks~ So you know how to write them (the wah-lone)~ To go to school early please sleep~ Now that I wrote it out, it really ain't that dark, or at all. The first verse is a bit confusing but I'd say that everything else is wholesome? Well um, this was what my mum would always sing when she put me to sleep, so yeah. It's nice :3
