Lullaby of Woe

The haunting song that is first heard on the title screen of The Witcher 3.

In the game it’s actually sung by Orianna (to the surviving children in the orphanage), in Blood and Wine, although this isn’t revealed until near the end of the game, during the quest “Blood Simple“. See the screenshot above.

Here are the lyrics to the song:

Wolves asleep amidst the trees,
Bats all a swaying in the breeze,
But one soul lies anxious wide awake,
Fearing all manner of ghouls, hags and wraiths.
For your dolly Polly, sleep has flown,
Don’t dare let her tremble alone.
For the witcher, heartless cold,
Paid in coin of gold,
He comes, he’ll go,
Leave naught behind
But heartache and woe.
Deep, deep woe.

Birds are silent for the night,
Cows turned in as daylight dies,
But one soul lies anxious wide awake,
Fearing all manner of ghouls, hags and wraiths.
My dear dolly, Polly, shut your eyes,
Lie still, lie silent, utter no cries.
As the witcher, brave and bold,
Paid in coin of gold.
He’ll chop and slice you,
Cut and dice you,
Eat you up whole.
Eat you whole.

And the full song, Lullaby of Woe:

Lullaby of Woe was composed by Marcin Przybylowicz.
