Wind blows through trees full of leaves
Swaying, swaying
By the river, frogs leap
Between the grasses, crickets chirp
The moon is curved

Curved like a baby’s eyes
Laugh, laugh
Layers and layers of clouds
Like an umbrella being held up
Stars wink

Scarecrow’s general store has closed for the day
Sparrows, sparrows go home now
Tiny wings, pulling on the wind
Don’t be afraid
Wind chimes on the window can talk
Baby is laying their head on a camellia couch
Mama softly sings while her hand pushes the cradle

Sway, sway, sway to grandma’s house
Grandma sews a doudou (undergarment covering chest and abdomen) for the baby
Sway, sway, sway beneath the willow tree
Kitty curls up its tail and falls asleep

Sway, sway, sway to the wooden fence
On the fence grows a circle of morning glories
Sway, sway, sway to the grape trellis
Aiya, grapes are as big as the moon

Wind stops, moon is bright
Leaves cover the window lattice
Tiny crickets, crying ”zhengzheng”
Like the strings of an instrument

Sway, sway, sway to grandma’s house
Grandma sews a doudou (undergarment covering chest and abdomen) for the baby
Sway, sway, sway beneath the willow tree
Kitty curls up its tail and falls asleep

Sway, sway, sway to the wooden fence
On the fence grows a circle of morning glories
Sway, sway, sway to the grape trellis

Aiya, grapes are as big as the moon

Sway, sway, flowers bloom in dreams
Baby extends a hand to touch my cheek
Baby, baby, time is like a white horse
But I hope you won’t grow up
I really hope you don’t grow up

Chinese lyrics

风吹着满树的叶儿
晃呀晃呀
河边蛙儿蹦
草间蛐蛐声
月儿弯呀

弯得像娃娃的眼睛
笑呀笑呀
云儿一层层
好像伞儿撑
星星眨呀

稻草人的杂货铺打烊啦
雀儿雀儿快回家
小翅膀啊,挽着风呀
别害怕
窗子上的风铃会说话
宝宝枕着茶花榻
娘的手儿摇着篮车轻轻唱啊

摇啊摇啊,摇到婆婆家
婆婆缝个兜兜给娃娃
摇啊摇啊,摇到柳树下
小猫卷着尾巴睡着啦

摇啊摇啊,摇到木篱笆
篱笆开满一圈儿牵牛花
摇啊摇啊,摇到葡萄架
哎呀,葡萄月亮一般大

风儿停,月儿明
树叶儿遮窗棂啊
小蛐蛐 叫铮铮
好像那琴弦声

摇啊摇啊,摇到婆婆家
婆婆缝个兜兜给娃娃
摇啊摇啊,摇到柳树下
小猫卷着尾巴睡着啦

摇啊摇啊,摇到木篱笆
篱笆开满一圈儿牵牛花
摇啊摇啊,摇到葡萄架
哎呀 葡萄月亮一般大

摇啊摇,梦里开着花
娃娃伸手摸着我脸颊
娃娃呀 娃娃,时间像白马
我却希望你长不大
我好希望你长不大
