    Hello Jessica.
    My mum used to sing this to me as a child. Think it goes like this>
    Tuku tuku ulliga faren
    killi killi vita lammen
    becke becke bessarna stangas vilt
    stangas i farahjorden

    solen sig sakta sanka
    vad manne vanne tanka
    tidigt i morgon vi ses igen
    langt ner vid ensliga heden

    I am probably wrong. But it’s something?

  5. Cecilia Says:

    It’s indeed a Swedish song. But the lyrics you have are Swedish. :)

    Greetings from Finland to Jessica, Mama Lisa and …

    The Children’s Song in question is in finnish as follows:
    ***
    Tuku, tuku lampaitani
    Kili, kili, kiliäni
    Päkä, päkä puskuripässiä
    Päkä, päkä pässiäni

    Aurinko mailleen laskehtii,
    Kussapa kultani viipyypi.
    Kyllä me tavataan huomenna
    Toisemme suurella salolla.
    ***
    tuku; it doesn’t mean anything. Perhaps it is an ancient appeal word to a lamb.
    lampaitani; this means “my lambs”, so she is appealing her lambs to come to her
    kili = young goat
    kiliäni= my young goat
    päkä; it doesn’t mean anything. ….ancient appeal word….
    puskuripässi; this is “ram that rams”
    pässi=ram
    pässiäni=my ram
    Aurinko mailleen laskehtii=The Sun is setting
    Kussapa kultani viipyypi= Where is my dearest now

    Kyllä me tavataan huomenna toisemme suurella salolla.
    We shall have our rendezvous tomorrow on another great land.

    Hi – My mom’s grandma used to sing her a finnish song. My mom says it meant rocking – bauba, bauba. But I cannot find anything about it. After looking, could she have been singing vauva, vauva – baby? Any thoughts/ help would be appreciated! I would love to find the song for my mom!
