Here is the Cradle Song by Johannes Brahms arranged as a violin duet! The original title is "Wiegenlied: Guten Abend, gute Nacht," and it was written in 1868. The lyrics were originally in German, but there is an English version. I don't think I've ever heard anyone actually sing the actual words to this song - I've only heard people hum it. It has a very pretty and recognizable melody!
This duet and backing track was arranged from this version:
