Edo Lullaby No. 284
Sleep, my baby. Relax yourself.
You may rest asleep.
You may be a good baby,
If you fall asleep soon.
You don’t / have to worry /
Where your baby sitter’s gone.
She’s gone over the mountains, /
Where her home is.
You must remember / her last souvenirs /
You received when she came back.
And the little flute.
