The song "Es kam ein Herr am Schlössli" is a lullaby from Switzerland. It can be found in the Sammlung von Schweizer Kühreihen und Volksliedern under the title "Wiegenlied". The story is about a gentleman who rides to a castle and asks the Lady if her children are nice or naughty. The Lady replies that they are naughty. Then the gentleman drives off and replies that he would have had presents for nice children. Questions arise such as: who is this man? Why would he have presents for nice kids? Why would you sing this to children going to sleep? Hence the title: Sleep Well with a dark sarcastic undertone.

Es kam ein Herr zum Schlößli
Uff emma schöne Rößli;
Da lugt die Frau zum Fenster raus Und sagt: Der Mann ist nichtt zu Haus.
S'isch nimer d'heim als d'Chinder und's Meitli uf der Winde.
Der Herr uf sinem Rößli
seit zue der Frau im Schlößli

Sind's gueti Chind, sind's bösi Chind, ah liebi Frau, sagt mir's swift! Die Frau, die seit: 's sind bösi Chind,
sie folge der Muetter gar nid g'schwind!
Da seit der Herr: So reit ich heim! dergleichen Kinder brauch ich kein'. und reit uf synem Rössli
weit, weit eweg vom Schlößli.
