Karpe Diem - Gunerius (English translation)

English translation

Gunerius

I was born in the traffic
My father brought me down to Gunerius1
I was baptised in the traffic there
No matter how I think that you look like
 
A corner kick is not a goal, a goal is a goal
That's what they taught me in Holmenkollen2
And if someone passes you the ball then keep it
Buy the team, keep going on now
Hi there Sogndal, hi there Jostein Flo3
This is 100.6 Radio Oslofjord4
The public transport as a replacement for my mother
That's where I live then
 
And I was sure that I would live in the city until the day I died
But now I'm looking at a screen with two little ones in fetal position
Twins, twins, twins, twins, shit
An even bigger car, an even bigger heart, even bigger boobs
She wants something bigger, she wants a farm, so she wants Jonas
I want the noise, I want the kebab, but I want Oda5
I'm going to be a dad, this is perfect
I'm going to be a dad, I'm going to be a dad, everything else is a bonus
 
But I was born in the traffic
My father brought me down to Gunerius
I was baptised in the traffic there
No matter how I think that you look like
 
So I'm going to love you until I die
It is a death threat, death threat, death threat
She said: I will love you until I die
It is a death threat, death threat, death threat
 
A corner kick is not a goal, but a goal is a goal
That's what we talk about in Holmenkollen
Don't pretend that you're a criminal, you won't surprise anyone
Especially not those who decides over the IPOs
What is a little bit of stabbing compared to
Ten digit white-collar crimes when
The tie is tied in shipping
There is no MMA or kickboxing, only blind violence
 
The police are investigating economic crimes in my hood like ding dong
No one informs them here, the wife's wondering why they're visiting
They're looking for Svein, they are way too late, he's on the plane now
Svein in Switzerland, Liechtenstein
A new house and a new woman
A new boat and a new PIN code
A new bathrobe, a new SIM card
Everything will work out for rich people
Svein and I, we were up to no good
Svein and I, born the same year
Svein and I, we're from a place where you never talk about bad things
 
I was born in the traffic
My father brought me down to Gunerius
I was baptised in the traffic there
No matter how I think that you look like
 
So I'm going to love you until I die
It is a death threat, death threat, death threat
She said: I will love you until I die
It is a death threat, death threat, death threat
 
Till death
Till death
Til death
Till death do us part
Part, part, part, part
