Danish Children Songs - En lille nisse rejste (English translation)


En lille nisse rejste

En lille nisse rejste
med ekstrapost fra land til land,
hans agt det var at hilse
på verdens største mand.
Han kom til stormogulen
og der, hvor kæmpekålen gror,
men mellem alle kæmper
ham tyktes ingen stor.
Da gik han ned til havet
og stirred i det klare vand,
han smilte, thi nu havde
han set den største mand.

English translation

A small elf traveled

A small elf traveled
By special delivery from country to country,
His intention was to greet
The world's greatest man.
He came to the Great Mogul Empire
And where giant cabbage grows,
But among all the struggling giants
None seemed great to him.
When he went down to the sea
Staring into the clear water,
He smiled, for now he had
Seen the greatest man.
Translation Mine if no other Translation Source is given. Soon as a "Source" field with a weblink appears below, it is not my translation, but taken from another website.
If you have corrections. i will consider them if they are made in a courteous way, including stanza and line, and what it is that needs to be replaced. If you only type one or two words into the comment box, without giving the location, I will simply ignore it.
Another option is you correct the entire song and paste it so I can in turn copypaste it, which is less work for me. You can also take my translation and make your own translation using mine as a basis.
If you start a fight over commas, apostrophes, grammar, syntax, lower and upper case, english dialects that you don't understand cause your english is just too poor, as it has now happened for the last couple weeks constantly. I promise you soon as you start monkeying around and bossing me around with your comments that I can't delete. I will delete the translation instead. and Keep it on my computer where it belongs.
