Robert wrote us looking for help with a German lullaby from his childhood. Here’s his note:
I’m hoping you can help me. My Dad sang a German lullaby to me when I was little. I do not remember the whole song, and I do not know the name.
I had typed it into a site and received some clarification, but still do not know the name of the song. I do not know who sang it originally, and I do not know the lyrics for the whole song.
Lyrics; du du dic trampa en hasin du du dic snarsin bin ? sorry this is all I know. Here’s a recording I made…
My Great Grandfather came to the U.S. in the late 1800 – early 1900’s I’m sure he sang it to my Dad also! If it helps my Great Grandfather was from the town of Heidie in the Northwest part of Germany (Slyienwick- probably not spelled right ).
I would appreciate any help you can give me! It would be nice to have the name of the song and who wrote or composed it. If anyone knows how I can get the lyrics in their entirety that would be cool too.
If anyone can help with the name of the lullaby and/or the lyrics, please let us know in the comments below.
Thanks in advance! -Mama Lisa
UPDATE: Elisabeth found the song for Robert! It’s a love song called Du, du liegst mir am Herzen
(You, You are in My Heart). Click the link for the lyrics, a translation and video. Many thanks to Elisabeth for her help! Dankeschön!
