Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Neiryasa yo  hatate
Neiryasa yo  hatate
Nakuko wa  kagobune  tsui no michi
Ichiwara  kizande  onmekashi
Neiryase na  sakamihagi

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Fall asleep, my child.
Fall asleep, my child.
The crying child will be carried off to the netherworld in her cage.
Covered in tattoos, dressed up neatly,
if you don't fall asleep, your tattoos will be peeled together with your skin.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Neiryasa yo  hatate
Neiryasa yo  hatate
Miko-san  awai ni  okitsukeba
Shiseigi  ugatte  imii no gi
Kumon  hiraite  yasukarazu

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Fall asleep, my child.
Fall asleep, my child.
If the priestess wakes up in the middle of the ceremony,
her four limbs will be pierced by stone pillars as a chastisement,
for it would be calamitous if the gate between the two worlds were to open.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Yukinasa yo  hatate
Yukinasa yo  hatate
Yukibune  yurashite  hatate
Kono kishi  hiraite  hatate
Rourou  miwatari  ka no kishi ni
Shisei  watashite  naku ga teage

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Please go, my child.
Please go, my child.
Row the boat, my child.
Follow this bank, my child.
Sail your boat towards that vast and dim bank.
It carries your tattoos off as we weep uncontrollably.

Also known as the Sleeping Priestess, the Subduing Song, and the Lullaby.
