Thread Name: Lyrics Versions: Brahms' Lullaby
Subject: RE: Brahms Lullaby
I know it wouldn't be good writing, but could the nails be stuck in the bed or cradle? Perhaps for decoration?

Does anyone know who wrote the German words?

Does anyone know whether this is really by Brahms, or is it a folk song he arranged, like "Da unten im Tale", "Mein Maedel hat ein Rosenmund", and others?
