lyrics

Der jeg meg så ene i vang monnen gå
Jeg hørte to ravner at holde råd
Den ene seg til den annen vendte;
Hvor skal i dag vi vår føde hente
Hvor skal i dag vi vår føde hente

Bak gresstorv diket ved gamle hist
Der ligger en ny slagen ridder for kvist
Og ingen annen vet at han ligger der
Enn hans hund og hans høk og hans hjertens kjær
Enn hans hund og hans høk og hans hjertens kjær

Hans høk den jaget i vilden skog
Hans hund den jaget bak dyk sitt råd
Hans fru har lovet en annen sin tro
Så vi kan ete vår mat i ro
Så vi kan ete vår mat i ro

Hans hvite halsben kan du sitte på
så hakker jeg ut hans øyne blå
og med en lokk av hans gule hår
vi dekker vårt rede neste vår
vi dekker vårt rede neste vår

English:

When I was walking alone in the meadow
I heard to ravens holding council
The one turned to the other;
Where should we get our food today?
Where should we get our food today?

Behind the grass mound by the old fence
There lies a newly slain knight
And no one else knows that he lies there
Not even his hound, his hawk and his hearts beloved
Not even his hound, his hawk and his hearts beloved

His hawk was hunting in the wild forest
His hound was hunting high and low
His wife has promised her faith to another
we can eat our food in piece
we can eat our food in piece

You can sit on his white neck bone
While I peck out his blue eyes
And with a lock of his blond hair
We will cover our nest the next spring
We will cover our nest the next spring
