"Midwinter's Night" as written by and Candice Night Ritchie Blackmore.....
Maire, lei campagno gansaion
A questo nue, balin-balan,
Leis avé, lei fedo sounation
D'ounte vén agéu sagan?
Lou gat sauto dins la paniero,
Medor gingouelo dins lei champ,
E lei gárri dins la feniero,
Barruelon coume de bregand!

The bells are a ringing
On Mid Winter's Night
The moon sets all alone
And once again I try to sleep before the morning light

Too soon the sun will come a-calling over the hills in our little town
Too soon the snow will start falling over the worls without a sound
While in my room dreams are a-fleeting
I close my eyes one more time
All too quickly the dawn is breaking and I must leave the night behind.

The bells are a ringing
On Mid Winter's Night
The moon sets all alone
And once again I try to sleep before the morning light

The bells are a ringing
On Mid Winter's Night
The moon sets all alone
And once again I try to sleep before the morning light
And once again I try to sleep before the morning light
Before the morning light
Before the morning light

    TranslationFound this about the first part of the lyrics, that seem to be in old (French) Provençal, written in Roumanille spelling.

    Mother, the bells are wobbling
    Tonight, wobble-wobbling [bell sound],
    The sheep, the ewes ring/tinkle.
    Where does this racket come from?
    The cat jumps in its (lit. "the") basket,
    Fido barks in the fields
    And the rats in the hayloft
    Wallow like bandits.

    These Provençal lyrics are sung to the tune to a 19th century song called "Les bœufs" that you can hear sung by the Dutch-born baritone Henri Albers at the first link of that page.

    Gathered all of the above looking for the song on the forums and archived pages. I hope it helps someone, someday.
