The first line in Irish goes as follows:
Déanann Mamaí ciste agus bogaim an cliabhán agus suím ar mo stóilín beag ag ithe canta maith aráin
“Mammy makes a cake and I rock the cradle and I sit on my little stool eating a good chunk of bread.”

There’s an English language version to this same ditty:

I’m Mommy’s little helper
I’m only 5 years old
I’ve lots and lots of work to do
I do it when I’m told
I sometimes rock the baby
While Mommy does the beds
And then I get my little stool and sing to sleepy heads!
