Nuku Nuku (Sleep, oh Sleep)
 

Sleep, oh sleep my little birdling,

Heavy, heavy eyes are falling

Tuck yourself into the good earth

The tall grass, my little song bird
 

Sparrow will weave you a nightshirt

Meadowlark fill your soft pillow

Bobolink will bring a blanket

Mattress made by little swallow
 

Sleep, oh sleep my little birdling,

Heavy, heavy eyes are falling

Tuck yourself into the good earth

The tall grass, my little songbird
