Erminie: Dear mother, in dreams I see her,
With lov'd face sweet and calm,
And hear her voice with love rejoice
When nestling on her arm.
I think how she softly press'd me,
Of the tears in each glist'ning eye,
As her watch she'd keep
When she rock'd to sleep
Her child with this lullaby.
Bye bye bye bye bye bye bye bye
bye bye bye bye bye bye.
Bye, bye, drowsiness o'ertaking,
Pretty little eyelids sleep.
Bye, bye, watching till thou'rt waking,
Darling be thy slumber deep.
Bye, bye, drowsiness o'ertaking,
Pretty little eyelids sleep.
Bye, bye, watching till thou'rt waking,
Darling be thy slumber deep!
   
  Ah! e'en when her life was ebbing
Her words were all of me;
My future years were all her fears,
Her fate was not to see.
My father, I heard you weeping
As in sorrow you standing by
And my mother's plaint in her accents faint,
This tender, sweet lullaby.
Bye bye bye bye bye bye bye bye
bye bye bye bye bye bye.
Bye, bye, drowsiness o'ertaking,
Pretty little eyelids sleep.
Bye, bye, watching till thou'rt waking,
Darling be thy slumber deep.
Bye, bye, drowsiness o'ertaking,
Pretty little eyelids sleep.
Bye, bye, watching till thou'rt waking,
Darling be thy slumber deep!
Bye, bye, bye, bye.
