German.png German text

Oben in dem Birnenbaum
sitzt ein Vöglein, ganz aus Gold:
singt so leis, man hört es kaum,
singt so fein und singt so hold.

Will die Grete artig sein,
hört sie's auch im Birnenbaum,
will die Grete artig sein,
hat mein liebes Töchterlein
einen goldnen Traum.

English.png English translation

High up in the cherry tree
sits a songbird made of gold,
singing low and sweet to thee,
while the wings of night unfold.

Look! O baby mine and see,
how that bird doth brightly gleam
in the flow'ry cherry tree,
soon it will fondly fling to thee
a golden dream.
