Can Anyone Help with a Swedish Lullaby that Sounds Like "Ro, ro sharen"?

Bonnie wrote asking for help with a Swedish lullaby.  Here’s her email:

Hello!  I just discovered your lovely site when looking for more words to a Swedish lullaby my father (85) tried to remember all his adult life.  We only have this little bit:

Ro, ro sharen

Placka biben baren

Do you know any more?  We would love to know it and have it in our family times.  Thank you, Bonnie

If anyone knows any of the lyrics to this song, please let us know in the comments below.

    2.Ro ro barnet katten hänger i garnet

  2. Annika Says:

    Ro ro till skären
    Plocka små barnen bären
    Plocka så mycket som båten bär
    Skynda sen hem medan dager är

    English translation:
    Row row to the skerries
    Pick [for] the little childern the berries
    Pick as much as the boat carries
    Then hurry home while it’s day
