Japanese Lullaby

Lullaby of Takeda (Takeda no komoriuta) is a traditional Japanese lullaby from Kyoto sung by a tired caregiver who needs her own sleep!

I don’t like work such as babysitting,
The baby cries and it’s snowing outside tonight.

I’ll go back to my native home, when I get days off.
But I don’t have a nice dress or shoes to wear.

This baby cries so often and I can’t sleep too well tonight.
Sleep my baby and let me sleep till tomorrow morning.

Today, I’m going back to my home over the mountain.
I can see my parent’s humble house over there.
