Sleep, Sleep Cumin Flower - Iranian Children's Songs - Iran - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image



Lala lala gole zire

Lala lala gole zire
Dou pestanam pore shire
Babat rafte zani gire
Nanat az qosse mimire
Lala lala dare dargoosh
Bebar bazaar mano befroosh
Be yek man noon o se sir gosht
Bia benshin, bokhor khamoosh.

"kh" like Spanish "j" or German "ch" in Bach.
