- "That song...That's the song daddy always plays for me before I go to sleep..."
- — Goron Elder's Son
The "Goron Lullaby" (ゴロンの子守歌 Goron no Komoriuta?) is a song from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. This song is learned in two parts, and has the power to put Gorons to sleep instantly. Obviously, the song is often used among Gorons to put their young ones to sleep.
On his quest to enter the Snowhead Temple and restore spring to the mountains of Snowhead, Link encounters the Goron Elder frozen inside a giant snowball. Link thaws him out, but the elderly Goron refuses to have anything to do with Link, and claims that he, being in the shape of Darmani as result of wearing the Goron Mask, must be an illusion. However, Link tells the elder of his son, who misses his father. The Goron Elder teaches Link the "Goron Lullaby", which calms Gorons, but cannot remember the end of the song. Link plays the unfinished song for the Goron Elder's Son, and he remembers his father. He teaches Link the end of the song and falls asleep, along with the other Gorons of the Goron Shrine. Link plays the song for the invisible Biggoron guarding the Snowhead Temple, who has been taken in by evil powers and blows people away from the Snowhead Temple. Biggoron becomes visible again, and falls into the chasm below, allowing Link to enter the Snowhead Temple and defeat the enemy therein, Goht.
The "Goron Lullaby" can be used to obtain a Piece of Heart by playing it in front of the giant Gossip Stones in four secret Hidden Holes in Termina Field; however, it can be interchanged with the "Sonata of Awakening" or the "New Wave Bossa Nova" depending on the player's choice.
A lullaby is a soothing song, usually sung to children before they go to sleep, with the intention of speeding up that process. As a result, they are often simple and repetitive.
