lyrics

Bonden hadde ei dotter så ven
Friaren kjem over fjord
Med gyldne lokker og stemme så ren
Friar du ligg snart i jord

Og mang ein unger svenn svikta i kne
Friaren kjem over fjord
Men bonden ville ei dotter si gje
Friar du ligg snart i jord

For jenta mot jarnvarmen går, lysende øuga hu dræg og hu slår
Friar kan kjempe med sverd, i flamman så ender hans ferd
Ei gammel forbanning ei tung bør og ha, når dømt te å brenne hu va

Der kom en friar fra borgen i nord
Friaren kjem over fjord
Med sverd i slira og vilje så stor
Friar du ligg snart i jord

Da natta mørkna så sneik han sæ inn
Friaren kjem over fjord
Der fant han jenta og sa bli du min
Friar du ligg snart i jord

For jenta mot jarnvarmen går, lysende øuga hu dræg og hu slår
Friar han kjempe med sverd, i flamman så ender hans ferd
Ei gammel forbanning ei tung bør og ha, når dømt te å brenne hu va

Ut av jarnet sto strålandes ild
Friaren kjem over fjord
Hans kamp va hard med flammen for vill
Friar du ligg snart i jord

Og jenta trakk mot flammen i vred
Friaren kjem over fjord
Friar slår sverdet men han bli slått ned!
Friar du ligg snart i jord

For jenta mot jarnvarmen går, lysende øuga hu dræg å hu slår
Friar han kjempe med sverd, i flamman så ender hans ferd
Ei gammel forbanning ei tung bør og ha, når dømt te å brenne hu va

English:

The farmer had a doughter so fair
Friar you will come over the fjords
With golden hair and her voice so clean
Friar you will soon lay in the ground

And many young men came to ask her hand
Friar you will come over the fjords
But the farmer would not give her away
Friar you will soon lay in the ground

ref. The girl walks towards the fire, with glowing eyes she pulls and she hits
A Friar can fight with a sword, but in the flames his journey will end
An old curse a heavy load to bear, she was condemned to burn

A Friar arrived from the castle in the north
Friar you will come over the fjords
With a sword in his shaft and willpower so strong
Friar you will soon lay in the ground

When the night darkened he snuck inn
Friar you will come over the fjords
Found the girl and said you will be mine
Friar you will soon lay in the ground

ref.

Out from the fire place came beams of fire
Friar you will come over the fjords
His fight was tough but the flames were to wild
Friar you will soon lay in the ground

And the girl walked towards the flames so angry
Friar you will come over the fjords
The Friar swings his sword but he is beaten down
Friar you will soon lay in the ground

ref.
