Johannes Brahms (May 7, 1833 –April 3, 1897), composer and pianist, was one of the leading musicians of the Romantic period. Born in Hamburg, Brahms spent much of his professional life in Vienna, Austria, where he was a leader of the musical scene. In his lifetime, Brahms’s popularity and influence were considerable; following a comment by the nineteenth century conductor Hans von Bülow, he is sometimes grouped with Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven as one of the Three Bs.

Excerpt from Wikipedia

Brahms’ Lullaby is the name for several children’s lullabies with similar lyrics set to Brahms’ melody.  The original of which was set in German by Johannes Brahms’:

Wiegenlied

Guten Abend, gute Nacht, mit Rosen bedacht,
Mit Näglein besteckt, schlüpf unter die Deck!’
Morgen früh, wenn Gott will, wirst du wieder geweckt
Morgen früh, wenn Gott will, wirst du wieder geweckt
Schlaf nun selig und süß, schau im Traum ‘s Paradies
Schlaf nun selig und süß, schau im Traum ‘s Paradies
Guten Abend, gute Nacht, von Englein bewacht
Die zeigen im Traum, dir Christkindleins Baum

 

English Lyrics

Lullaby and goodnight,
With roses bedight,
With lilies bespread,
Is baby’s wee bed;

Lay down now and rest,
May thy slumber be blessed.
Lay down now and rest,
May thy slumber be blessed.

Lyrics
Oh, where have you been,
Billy Boy, Billy Boy?
Oh, where have you been,
Charming Billy?
I have been to seek a wife,
She’s the joy of my life,
She’s a young thing
And cannot leave her mother.

You put your right foot in,
You put your right foot out,
You put your right foot in
And you shake it all about.
You do the Hokey Pokey
And you turn yourself around,
That’s what it’s all about.

You put your left foot in,
You put your left foot out,
You put your left foot in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the Hokey Pokey
And you turn yourself around,
That’s what it’s all about.

Lyrics
Angels we have heard on high
Singing sweetly o’er the plains,
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains.

Gloria, in excelsis Deo! Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be,
Which inspire your heavenly song?

Gloria, in excelsis Deo! Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

The name “Kanaka” is given to the Sandwich Islanders who traveled by ship between California and the Sandwich Islands and eventually formed a colony in San Diego.  The name answered to both collectively and individually. As their proper names were often difficult to pronounce, the captains or crews gave them other names. Some were named after the ship in which they sailed, and others after common names such as Bill, Tom or John.
