Kommentare des Autors:

the text is translated and adapted by Folque. it is based on both the Scottish ballad "The Cruel Sister" (child no. 10) and the Norwegian "horpa". variants are found translated in the British Isles, the USA and all over Scandinavia. the tune is from another Scottish ballad called "riddles wisely expounded" (child no. 1)

Harpa

Det bodde en bonde ved en strand,
Harpa toner var og fin.
To fagre døtre hadde han.
Fa la la la la la la la la la
 
Den eldste til den yngre sa:
Harpa toner var og fin.
La oss ned til elven dra.
