“Mozart’s Lullaby (Sleep, little one)” is a lullaby, perhaps the most famous Wiegenlied (German lullaby), dating from the 18th century and attributed for a long time to W.A.Mozart. However, according to recent research, the composer of the tune is considered to be either Bernhard Flies or Johann Friedrich Anton Fleischmann. Both of them lived at the end of 18th century.
The words are by Friedrich Wilhelm Gotter (1746–1797).

Sleep, little one, go to sleep
So peaceful the birds and the sheep
Quiet the meadow and trees
Even the buzz of the bees
The silvery moonbeams so bright
Down through the window give light
O’er you the moonbeams will creep
Sleep, little one, go to sleep.
Good night, good night.
