Thread Name: Lyrics Versions: Brahms' Lullaby
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Brahms' Lullaby
Well, there's a tradition in lullabies - mama gets to sing sweetly about all the vengeful stuff she's gonna do to the little darling if it doesn't stop crying.
But the translation is left to the listener. Stuck with little nails or little cloves (like a ham?).
I know which one I hear.
