Danish
Nu er alle folk i hele byen lige ved at si’ godnat
Ham, du ve’ nok, pusler me’ paraplyen
Så nu sker det, skat

Solen trak gardinet for
Se nu blev i dag i går
Skynd dig ind i sove-rige
Så din drøm bli’r rigtig lang

Skynd dig ind i lege-land
Li’ så hurtigt som du kan
Mød den lille sjove pige
Du fortalte om engang

Så tænker mor imens på alt det grå og triste
Som voksne menn’sker kymrer sig om
Og streger alle sorger på den lange liste
Så den i morgen tidlig er tom

Skynd dig ind i lege-land
Li’ så hurtigt som du kan
Skynd dig ind i sove-rige
Så din drøm bli’r rigtig lang

Så, nu skal du ligge rigtig stille
Stille som en lille mus
Hør, så kan du høre en stjerne spille
Over vores hus

Så tænker mor imens på alt det grå og triste
Som voksne menn’sker kymrer sig om
Og streger alle sorger på den lange liste
Så den i morgen tidlig er tom

Skynd dig ind i lege-land
Li’ så hurtigt som du kan
Skynd dig ind i sove-rige
Så din drøm bli’r rigtig lang

Translation
Now all people all over town are just about to say goodnight
He, you know who, is rustling with his umbrella
Now it happens, darling

The Sun pulled down the curtain
Look, now today became yesterday
Hurry into the country of sleep
So that your dream will be long

Hurry into the country of play
Just as fast as you can
Meet the funny little girl
You once told me about

Meanwhile, mum will be thinking of all the grey and boring
That grown-ups worry about
And deletes all sorrows from the long list
So tomorrow morning it will be empty

Hurry into the country of play
Just as fast as you can
Hurry into the country of sleep
So that your dream will be long

So, now you must lie very quiet
Quiet as a little mouse
Listen, then you’ll hear a star playing
Over our house

Meanwhile, mum will be thinking of all the grey and boring
That grown-ups worry about
And deletes all sorrows from the long list
So tomorrow morning it will be empty

Hurry into the country of play
Just as fast as you can
Hurry into the country of sleep
So that your dream will be long
