Subject: Lyr Req: Go to sleep my darling baby (DeZurik)

Hello, I tried to learn the lyrics from "Go to sleep my darling baby" by the DeZurik sisters.

There are two versions to be found on youtube. The older one, from 1938, has a better sound quality. This is what I could understand.
Who can help me to complete the lyrics?
Thank you so much!

Go to sleep my darlin' baby,
oh baby, the moon smiles above,
cuddle closer little baby,
oh baby, you're my precious love

Oh why do you sigh, the stars are shining bright
...
...

oh go to sleep , my darlin baby,
my baby dream sweet dreams of love

Yodel ...

Shadows are fallin ...
Dreamland is callin' to you and to me
Oh my wonderful child ...
... for night has come
I'll rock you to sleep while the north wind blows
And sing ... old lullaby everyone knows

Go to sleep my darlin' baby,
oh baby, the moon smiles above,
cuddle closer little baby,
oh baby, you're my precious love

Oh why do you sigh, the stars are shining bright
...
...

oh go to sleep , my darlin baby,
my baby dream sweet dreams of love

Yodel ..

Here's what I heard:

Chorus: Go to sleep my darling baby, o baby the moon smiles above.

Cuddle closer little baby, oh baby,you are my precious love.

Oh why do you cry? The stars are shining bright.

Then tell your cares goodbye and kiss Mother good night.

So go to sleep my darling baby, my baby, dream sweet dreams of love.

yodel

Shadow are falling over land and sea.

Dreamland is calling to you and to me.

Oh my wonderful child, time for rest, my precious one.

The twilight is stealing for night has come.

I'll rock you to sleep while the north wind blows

and sing you a lullaby everyone knows.

Repeat chorus.
yodel

===================
I had to listen to "time for rest" 6 or 8 times before I understood it.

Thank you for bringing up this pretty song and another opportunity to yodel.

Great, many thanks!
English is not my native language so this is a great help.
Now when I listen again, I understand even "Shadows are falling far o'er land and sea" (instead of "over land and sea). Can this be right?

Thank you again and have fun yodelling!
