Looking for "Tula Baba" Zulu lyrics

I've been scouring the internet for a complete set of lyrics for this beautiful South African lullaby but the only thing I keep coming up with is one that has English added to it and the Zulu part is just repeated.

I listened to Miriam Makeba's song and loved that one because it was all in Zulu.  I can't quite pick up the rest of the lyrics though, only a few words unfortunately.  Is there anyone on here who knows the full song in Zulu?  I don't mind an English translation, but I don't want the Helmut Lotti version. :/

What there is so far:
"Tula tu tula baba tulu sana
Tul'umam 'uzobuya ekuseni."

Please and thank you!
