I Lull My Child

Kannan tunturilla,
Sanat ja sävel, Yelling Rosa

I Lull My Child,
Words and Music by Yelling Rosa



Kannan tunturilla

I lull on the mountains

pientä kaunista lasta.

My beautiful child to sleep.

Riekko edessä mun vaeltaa.

A willow grouse ahead us saunters.

Tuuli hyväilee hiljaa

The wind cherishes softly

suolaheinää kädellään,

The sorrel with her long hand,

päivä taa tunturin

The day behind the peaks


Of stone hides.



Kaiku huutoon vastaa,

The echo sounds the plot

kun mun lullatus hellä

When my affectionate song

alkaa aaluvan luonta painaa.

Makes my little precious baby tired.

Pienet keltaiset kädet,

Tiny tanned hands, jaw and nose,

rus – keat silmät

Bottomless look of her eyes

pian kai nukahtavat

Soon will turn into rest


In my arms.



Tämän lapsen uni,

The dream of my young one,

iso veikeä hymy

Big funny contented smile

lailla porotokan aukeaa

Like a herd of reindeer spreads around

ja se käteni yhteen

And it makes me cross my arms.

liittää ja laulan, nauran

I sing and I praise the land

valossa kyljellään

In the flat light which crawls


Through the air.
