Esther Ofarim – Schlafe, Mein Prinzchen, Schlaf Ein lyrics

Schlafe, mein Prinzchen, schlaf ein,
es ruhn Sch?fchen und V?gelein,
Garten und Wiese verstummt,
auch nicht ein Bienchen mehr summt,
der Mond mit silbernem Schein
gucket zum Fenster herein,
schlafe bei silbernem Schein,
schlafe, mein Prinzchen, schlaf ein!
Schlaf ein, schlaf ein!

Auch in dem Schlosse schon liegt,
alles in Schlummer gewiegt,
es regt sich kein M?uschen sich mehr,
Keller und K?che sind leer,
Luna mit silbernem Schein
gucket zum Fenster herein,
schlafe bei silbernem Schein,
schlafe, mein Prinzchen, schlaf ein!
Schlaf ein, schlaf ein!

    it's a lullaby, translated a bit awkwardly here. It invites the little pince to fall asleep as birds and bees go quiet. Meanwhile Luna (=moon) with its silver glow peeks through the window and shares its gentle light. Refrain: Sleep little prince, fall asleep.
    It was a song my mamma sang to me 70 years ago. I am now with my grandchildren in the USA and tried to remember the lyrics. Looked them up and found two versions on this site. Neither rings completely true. But it is such a pretty, soothinhg melody that entices. Even just humming the parts I can't remember works fine. Especially slowing down and singing the last cadence more quietly easily puts baby to sleep. My 2-year old granddaughter asks for the "luna" song. So does her five-year old brother now.
