Norwegian Children Songs - Ride ride ranke (English translation)

Norwegian

Ride ride ranke

Ride ride ranke!
Si meg hvor skal veien gå?
Bestefar besøk skal få.
Ride ride ranke!
 
Ride, ride ranke!
Og når vi så stiger av,
sier vi "goddag, goddag!"
Ride, ride ranke!
 
Ride, ride ranke!
Bestemor, hun er så snill.
Vi får leke som vi vil.
Ride, ride, ranke!
 
Ride, ride ranke!
Nå til onkel i galopp.
"Er han hjemme?" Ja! Så stopp!
Ride, ride ranke!
 
Ride, ride ranke!
Nå er hesten ordnt'lig trett.
Rytteren er god og mett.
Ride, ride ranke!

Rita rita runkin

Rita rita runkin!
Tell me, where does the road go?
We will visit grandpa.
Rita rita runkin!
 
Rita rita runkin!
And then when we descend,
We say "good day, good day!"
Rita rita runkin!
 
Rita rita runkin!
Grandma, she is so kind.
We can play as we want.
Rita rita runkin!
 
Rita rita runkin!
Now, galloping to uncle
Is he home? Yes! Then stop!
Rita rita runkin!
 
Rita rita runkin!
Now the horse is really tired,
The rider is full and glad.
Rita rita runkin!

Here's what Petter said about the definition of "Ride Ranka": "'Ride' literary means 'ride', as on a horse. 'Ranke' can mean the long rows of grapes or other fruits, but in this setting, 'ride ranke' means to jump up and down on someone's lap."
