Grandmothers and mothers sing nice little songs while rocking little ones to sleep. Such a song is called a ‘lullaby’. Do you remember a lullaby in your own language? Tell the class in English what the lullaby says.

A ‘lullaby’ is a sweet song sung generally by ladies to make their babies sleep while they rock the cradle. These songs are generally in the folk languages. The English translation of one such ‘lullaby’ is given below.

Oh moon! We are waiting for you. Bring the stars also with you. We have great love for them too. Fairies also live with you. Bring them also along with you. They will recite their stories and sing sweet songs to my child. Let them lull him to sleep. He is creating a nuisance for me. I am unable to work as long as he is awake.
