Painting Steve Hanks

Mommy sang me it,
Then my father. The song of
Joy and happiness.

Now I sing it to Sarit,
My childhood comes back to life.

Sleep, sleep, my little girl.
Sleep, sleep.
Sleep, sleep, my little one,
Sleep, sleep.

Daddy’s gone to work –
He went, Daddy went.
He’ll return when the moon comes out –
He’ll bring you a present!

Sleep, sleep…

Daddy went to the vineyards –
He went, Daddy went.
He’ll return when the stars come out –
He’ll bring you grapes!

Sleep, sleep…

Daddy went to the orchard –
He went, Daddy went.
He’ll return in the evening with the wind –
He’ll bring an apple!

Sleep, sleep…

Daddy went to the field –
He went, Daddy went.
He’ll come back in the evening with the shadows –
He’ll bring you ears of grain!
