Bedtime Lullabies - Baby English #0.4

domenica, marzo 06, 2016


Le nostre giornate in inglese sono state un po’ frenate negli ultimi tempi dai continui malanni di stagione di Trilobimba.
Abbiamo così cambiato il programma originale, rivelatosi pesante per entrambe, e attualmente dedichiamo un’ora al giorno alla lingua Inglese, solitamente dalle 17:30 alle 18:30.
Ho finalmente trovato una Nunny, che ha una bimba (bilingue) della stessa età di Trilobimba. Cercando di avere un approccio morbido a questa novità, per ora lasciamo che le bimbe si conoscano, a breve inizieremo a fare un’ora alla settimana tutte e quattro insieme in inglese. Solo in futuro, quando sarà pronta, lascerò Trilobimba dalla Nanny!!
Dopo il primo incontro Trilobimba mi ha chiesto di cantarle una “Ninnananna” in Inglese! Che bella idea, perché non mi era venuta in mente? Finalmente dopo 2 anni posso abbandonare la mia solita canzoncina ed inizierò a sperimentare queste “Lullaby”

Lullaby and goodnight
La più famosa melodia, Brahms’ Lullaby, io scelto questo testo:

Lullaby, and good night, with pink roses bedight,
With lilies o’er spread, is my baby’s sweet head.
Lay thee down now, and rest, may thy slumber be blessed!
Lay thee down now, and rest, may thy slumber be blessed!
Lullaby, and good night, your mother’s delight,
Shining angels beside my darling abide.
Soft and warm is your bed, close your eyes and rest your head.
Soft and warm is your bed, close your eyes and rest your head.
Sleepyhead, close your eyes. mother’s right here beside you.
I’ll protect you from harm, you will wake in my arms.
Guardian angels are near, so sleep on, with no fear.
Guardian angels are near, so sleep on, with no fear.

Golden slumbers

Golden slumbers kiss your eyes,
Smiles await you when you rise.
Sleep,
Pretty baby,
Do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby.
Cares you know not,
Therefore sleep,
While over you a watch I'll keep.
Sleep,
Pretty darling,
Do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby.

Twinkle twinkle little star

Twinkle twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are?
Up above the world so high , like a diamond in the sky
When the blazing sun is gone, when he nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light, twinkle, twinkle all the night.
Then the traveller in the dark, thanks you for your tiny spark,
He could not see which way to go, if you did not twinkle so.
In the dark blue sky you keep, and often through my curtains peep,
For you never shut your eye, ’till the sun is in the sky.
As your bright and tiny spark lights the traveller in the dark,
Though I know not what you are – twinkle, twinkle little star.

E per finire, last but not least, la nostra preferita, suonata anche al nostro matrimonio:

Somewhere Over The Rainbow. What A Wonderful World

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Once in a lullaby1
Somewhere over the rainbow
Blue birds fly
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Dreams really do come true ooh oh1
Someday I'll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me1
Oh, somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
And the dream that you dare to,
Oh why, oh why can't I?
Well I see trees of green and red roses too,
I'll watch them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world1
Well I see skies of blue
And I see clouds of white
And the brightness of day
I like the dark
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people passing by
I see friends shaking hands
Saying, "How do you do?"
They're really saying, I...I love you
I hear babies cry and I watch them grow,
They'll learn much more than we'll know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world world
Someday I'll wish upon a star,
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top
That's where you'll find me
Oh, somewhere over the rainbow way up high
And the dream that you dare to, why, oh why can't I? I?
