"Fais dodo" means "beddy-bye" in French. It's baby-talk for "go to sleep". "Lolo" is baby-talk for "milk".

"'Fais do-do' is a very popular song, found in France and Québec alike. Here's my version..." -Dejah

Fais do do à ma p'tit' fille - Canadian Children's Songs - Canada - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image


The translation is singable.
