Cântec de leagăn

Doina din ce s-a făcut
Dintr-o gură de mic prunc
L-o lăsat maica dormind
L-o aflat doina zicând
Culcă-te puiuţ micuţ
Scoală-te mărişoruţ
Culcă-te şi te abuă
Până mâine-n dalbă ziuă
Şi te culcă şi adormi
Până mâine-n dalbe zori
Abu abu abua
Abua ţucu-l maica
Dormi puiuţule te-alină
Maica-i dusă la făină
Puişor cu ochi de mure
Maica-i dusă la pădure
Ţi-a aduce gătejoare
Şi ţi-a face scovergioare
De ti-i purta binişor
Ţi-a aduce-un puişor
De ti-i purta binişor
Ţi-a aduce-un puişor
Un puiuţ de rândunea
Cu tine s-a abua
Abu abu abua
Abua ţucu-l maica
Nu te teme tu de zmei
I-a goni maica pe ei
Nici de zmei nici de moroi
Maica nu-i lasă la noi
Nici de zmei nici de moroi
Maica nu-i lasă la noi
Nu te teme de moroaie
Cârtiţoi si cârtiţoaie
Cârtiţoi si cârtiţoaie
Că le dă maica bătaie

Lullaby

The Doina was first a babbling sound
Coming from a baby mouth,
Mummy left her sweetie sleeping
And found him with the Doina, singing.

Go to sleep, little baby
It will help you grow up,
Go to sleep, hush, little baby,
Right ‘till tomorrow, enjoy the nap.

Sleep smoothly, my precious
Untill the dawn,
Hush, hush, don’t be anxious
And dream of a green lawn.

Sleep now, sweetheart, and lie still,
Mummy’s going to the mill.
Little baby with blackberry eyes,
Mummy’s going to the woods,
To gather some twigs and roots,
Make you pancakes, bake you pies,
And if you are good and nice,
A baby bird you’ll get as prize,
A baby swallow,
To play with tomorrow.
Hush, hush, hush,
Hush, sweet baby,
Dragons won’t hurt you,
Mummy will scare them away,
Dragons and ghosts, too,
Mummy will send them astray.
Don’t be afraid of ghosts
The boogie man or moles,
Mummy will beat them all away
