Deep Forest – “Sweet Lullaby”

“The lyrics refer to a young orphan being comforted by his older brother despite the loss of their parents.”

It was sung by an inhabitant of the Solomon Islands.

==============================­====

Young brother, young brother you be quiet

Although you are crying to me

Your father has left us

He has gone to the place of the dead

Protect the head of the living,

Protect the orphan child
