Recording information by jaybeachamGOLD +1

Well, I said it backwards.
It's "Raisins and Almonds" (Yiddish: Rozhinkes mit Mandlen) is a Jewish lullaby by Abraham Goldfaden, so well known that it has assumed the status of a folk song.

In the Temple,
in a corner of a room,
Sits the widowed daughter of Zion, alone.
She rocks her only son, Yidele, to sleep
With a sweet lullaby.
Ai-lu-lu
Under Yidele's cradle
Stands a small white goat.
The goat travelled to sell his wares(to Market)
This will be Yidele's calling, too.
Trading in raisins and almonds.
Sleep, Yidele, sleep.
( several translations, this one will do.)

There are more verses but no room on this recording.

ROZHINKES MIT MANDLEN

In dem Beis-Hamikdosh
In a vinkl cheyder
Zitst di almone, bas-tsion, aleyn
Ihr ben yochidle yideln vigt zi keseider
Un zingt im tzum shlofn a ledeleh sheyn.
Ai-lu-lu

Unter Yidele's vigele
Shteyt a klor-vays tsigele
Dos tsigele iz geforn handlen
Dos vet zayn dayn baruf
Rozhinkes mit mandlen
Slof-zhe, Yidele, shlof.

In dem lidl mayn kind,
Lign fil nevues
Az du vest amol zayn tsezeyt oyf der velt.
A soykher vest du zayn fun ale tvues,
Un vest in dem oykh fardinen fil gelt.
Ai-lu-lu

Un az du vest raykh yidele.
Zolzt du zikh dermonen in dem lidele.
Rozhinkes mit mandlen,
Dos vet zayn dayn baruf.
Yidele vet alts ding handlen,
Shlof-zhe, Yidele, shlof.

Unter Yidele’s vigele
Shteyt a klor vayse tzigele
Dos tzigele is geforn handlen
Dos vet zayn dayn baruf,
Rozhinkes mit mandlen
Shlof zhe Yidele, shlof
Shlof zhe Yidele, shlof!
