It's called 'Mirah's Lullaby', an original composition by Rob Lane. I was looking for the lyrics when I found this posted question. The songs in Yiddish and sounds to me like an old Jewish folk song, from the shtetl (small towns with large Jewish populations, which existed in central and eastern Europe, before the Holocaust). I love it and will post the lyrics as soon as I find them.
I found these lyrics, posted as a comment, on this YouTube video of the song. "Ay lyu lyu [a common lullaby sound], schlof meine kind dein mama hat viel lieb far dir du hast shoyn deine eygelach tzugemacht [i can’t make out the next line or two] which means: sleep, my child your mother has so much love for you you have already closed your tiny eyes". If anyone can finish these lyrics, please post what is missing. Thanks !!!
