Norwegian lullaby from Vesterålen

Notes

*"The place on the roof: "Hågen" is possibly a distorted archaic word. No real meaning today as far as I know. Albeit I have heard that some small cottages sometimes had a kind of platform or look-out on top of their roofs with a ladder up tops, but this is speculation."-Siri
