It is not a typical lullaby, the fear is not obvious, but it is about the child's fear of abandonment.

My personal nightmare! They put nails into the child! Later I learned, that the word "Näglein" (= small nails) means cloves.

Most lullabies are horrifiyng, because the lives of the woman, particularly the ones of the mothers were often horrifiyng. In solitude, with their babies that couldn't understand (and that didn't let them sleep) they could express their worst feelings...
Once I thought about collect lullabies from everywhere and make a show on this matter.

Thank you. I hope, someone will translate it into English! 😱

Perhaps meanwhile the attempt of a German translation is enough for you? Regular smile

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Sat, 07/09/2019 - 11:11

Wonderful, I 've just seen it. Thank you for translating it! Regular smile

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Fri, 06/09/2019 - 11:51

Extremly horrifying! Thank you Lizzzard! 😨

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Fri, 06/09/2019 - 12:15

Terrifying! It fits! Thank you! 👹

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Fri, 06/09/2019 - 16:46

I hardly dared to open the links... 😲
Thank you very much, silenced, I put in your first one.
(And for the first time I am happy not to understand any French....)

Nursery rhymes are akin to fairy tales. If Mr. Bettelheim is to be trusted, the rules they abide by have a total disregard for political correctness Regular smile

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Fri, 06/09/2019 - 17:38

Oh yes, there are very different rules in the deep sea of the soul than on the surface...

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Sat, 07/09/2019 - 09:38

Zarina, thank you very much, it is a beautiful song! And it doesn't matter that it is not a typical lullaby, but it should be about a child's fear, as for example the fear of monsters, wild animals, shadows, darkness and so on. - In this case is not so obvious, but I can feel the fear of abandonment, so I put it in! 🌛

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Sat, 07/09/2019 - 15:58

Thanks so much, Emilia, you are no. 17 here... 🙀

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Sun, 08/09/2019 - 16:56

Ужас! 🐍 Спасибо огромное, Пинхас!

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Sun, 08/09/2019 - 17:20

You feel so safe when you are getting older... but then "it" comes back some day... 🤡

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Sun, 08/09/2019 - 17:16

Thank you, Eugene, for all these really "unpleasant" suggestions. I will try to translate them, but I am not sure, whether I will enjoy it... I am so scared! 👻 - I wonder why there are so much in Russian?

Наверное, детей сильно любим Regular smile

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Sun, 08/09/2019 - 17:30

К сожалению, я не понимаю текст...
(Может быть, это лучше??? 😱 )

"В ужасе тут, правда, только медведь." 😄 👍
Маша и медведь! Я люблю Машу и медведя! 🐻 💗
Спасибо большое! И я уже забылa, что я перевелa...

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Mon, 09/09/2019 - 09:44

Really 😭! Mille grazie, Annabellanna! I have seen that you put all the songs in here and translate some. Great work! 👍

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Mon, 16/09/2019 - 07:44

Thank you very much, Ivan! A really nice song, so you are no. 33 now... Regular smile

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Mon, 16/09/2019 - 07:47

Thank you again, Ivan. Regular smile As I couldn't find the lyrics, let's wait, till someone put in the text...

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Mon, 16/09/2019 - 16:55

Ok, let's check: it is a lullaby and it's about howling ghosts and haunted graves. Yes - it definitely meets the requirements! 👻 - Thank you, silenced!

silencedsilenced    Mon, 16/09/2019 - 17:02

Also one of the most beautiful songs of the Pogues', if I may add.
It screams for a good German translation [wink, wink]

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Mon, 16/09/2019 - 17:22

Yes, a beautiful song! And I have heard the scream...

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Thu, 19/09/2019 - 11:15

Unbelievable!! 😱 Thank you Ivan, thank you so much for all your suggestions! 👍 Please give me some time to read it! 🕚
