Norwegian Children Songs - Jeg gikk en tur på stien (English translation)

Norwegian

Jeg gikk en tur på stien

Jeg gikk en tur på stien
og søkte skogens ro.
Da hørte jeg fra lien
en gjøk som gol koko.
Koko, koko, kokokorokoko
Koko, koko, kokokorokoko
 
Jeg spurte den hvor mange,
hvor mange år ennu.
Den svarte meg med lange
og klagende koko.
Koko, koko ....
 
Jeg spurte om dens make
og om dens eget bo.
Den satt der oppå grenen
og kikket ned og lo.
Koko, koko ....
 
"Vi bygger ikke rede,
vi har hjem, vi to.
Fru Spurv er mor til barna
vi galer kun koko"
Koko, koko ....

English translation

I went for a walk on the path

I went for a walk on the trail
And seeked the calmness of the forest
Then I heard from the slope
a cuckoo who crowed
cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckucucu
cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckucucu
 
I asked it how many,
how many years still
It answered me with long
and complaining cuckoo
cuckoo, cuckoo...
 
I asked it about it's mate
and of it's own living.
It sat there on the branch
and looked down and laughed.
cuckoo, cuckoo...
 
"We don't build nests,
We've got a home, us two
Mrs. Sparrow is a mother to the children
We only crow cuckoo"
cuckoo, cuckoo
