Here's a longer version in the following video with the lyrics plus a translation by Lyndsey Haezebrouck...

Slaap, kindje, slaap,
Sleep, child, sleep,
Daar buiten loopt een schaap.
Ouside there is a sheep.
Een schaap met witte voetjes,
A sheep with white feet,
Dat drinkt zijn melk zo zoetjes.
Drinking his milk calmly.
Slaap, kindje, slaap,
Sleep, child, sleep,
Daar buiten loopt een schaap.
Outside there is a sheep.
