Thread Name: Lyrics Versions: Brahms' Lullaby
Subject: RE: Brahms Lullaby
Andreas, I wouldn´t even have remembered the first verse, that is, everthing except the third line. "Mit Näglein besteckt", is that some kind of sadistic ritual? Does it really say "Näglein"??? (Oder Nelklein oder so?, to all non-germanistics: to me that means something like "pierced with nails...")

Barbara, funny that Americans have Brahms in the name, while Germans usually know the song and know who Brahms was but would never make a connection between these (unless there experts)...
