The second lullaby, Schlafe, schlafe, holder süßer Knabe, was composed by Franz Schubert. This is why in Japanese, it was referred to as 「シューベルトの子守唄」 (Shuuberuto no Komoriuta) which literally means Schubert’s Lullaby. I blended the English lyrics available from Wikipedia and Mama Lisa’s World to write my own interpretation and translation of this song.
The fourth lullaby, Schlafe, mein Prinzchen, schlaf ein, is known as German’s most famous lullaby, according to Wikipedia. Wikipedia states that “the common view was that the melody was composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart” but the lyrics are by Friedrich Wilhelm Gotter and “attribution for the melody has since shifted to either Bernhard Flies or Friedrich Fleischmann.” which explains why it says 「モーツァルトの子守唄」(Motsuarto no Komoriuta) in Japanese. I used the English lyrics on Wikipedia, which were from Mama Lisa’s World as a base for my interpretation and translation.
The translation for the third lullaby, The Cradle Song, is from Mama Lisa’s World.

Originally part of the YouTube description:
Since you’ve read this far, I’d also like to thank everyone all of my subscribers. I think every 10 year old’s dream from my generation was to become a successful YouTuber and 10 year old me would have been absolutely delighted to have 73 subscribers. Although I’m not definitely not 10 anymore (maybe mentally?) and 73 is a small number, I’m still really happy that people trust me to translate things for Love Live. I’ll do my best to keep studying Japanese. Thank you again. And yes, I noticed the arranger’s name is misaligned but that’s a small detail and I’m not going to encode this video a fourth time to fix it as I need to study for school and work on the next Nijiyon episode. Pretend it’s aligned, okay?
