Can Anyone Help with the Words to a Portuguese Lullaby?

Shawn wrote to us asking for help with a lullaby in Portuguese that his grandma sang to him. Here’s his email:


I was trying to find a Portuguese lullaby that my vovo used to sing with me, something about a sleeping baby.

Dorme bebezinho sobra so na coma
Za dormede yama

I’m getting no where with this and it’s so sad I can’t remember it to pass on to my son.

Hope you can help thanks.


If anyone can help with the words to this lullaby and/or a translation, please comment below.

Thanks in advance!

Mama Lisa

    Dear Shawn

    I guess the lullaby you´re refering o is the one below:

    Dorme nenê
    que a Cuca vem pegar
    Papai foi na roça, mamãe foi trabalhar
