Hey everyone, I am trying to translate the song Hjerte Rimer På Smerte by Sys Bjerre and there are a few lines I'm struggling with.

Here are the lines:

Som kun er ude på du ved nok hvad/Hudrede træk med hårbørsten/Og så et iskoldt bad

"Så drenge tag jeg i agte!"

"Og uden at kysse de frække frøer" for this one, the only word that throws me off is frøer, it's slang I'm not familiar with

I'm up to my eyes right now, but I'm pretty sure that last part means:
"frække" (naughty) "frøer" (frogs).

"Who only want you know what / A hundred strokes with the hairbrush / And then an icy shower"
Hundrede has been misspelled as hudrede

"So boys, beware!"

"And without kissing the naughty frogs"
I'm pretty sure it's a reference to the fairy tale "The Frog Prince"

Thanks!

I thought frøer was slang because frogs didn't make sense but now that you mention it's a frog prince reference, it makes sense.

I was thinking something similar with the fairytale and it struck me how you'd have to kiss many frogs before discovering the real one that'll turn into a prince.
