Sjugur Og Trollbrura

 

og kongen han sto på høgeloftsvoll,
han så seg ut så vi'e.
tett ute på den grøne voll
der så han sjugur ri'e.

sjugur våga livet for jomfrua.

eg seia vel må at kongjen var vild,
for si dotter han mista till bergjet,
hvor jutul og troll held bryllaupspill,
men sjugur hadde nevan till vergje.

sjugur våga livet for jomfrua.

å, høyr no min sjugur, min dotte er di,
for du er no så strek ein herre.
om du torde gange i bergjet inn
og hente din hjertens kjære.

sjugur våga livet for jomfrua.

og sjugur han let till bryllaups be'
så mangje han kunne utvelgja.
deretter så bad han så mangen en tuss,
så tjukt som sju kunne telja.

sjugur våga livet for jomfrua.

du trudde vel brura var lekker ei tøs
med bryster og hår som sofia.
nei nase ho hadde som nautefjøs,
og augo som tjønn uti lia.

sjugur våga livet for jomfrua.

som brureskjenken var gangen forbi
og folket begynte å tvista.
han sjur dangla etter med klubba si,
og slo ikkje slag som missa.

sjugur våga livet for jomfrua.

og heim kom han sjugur med kongsdottera fin,
høva bettre for tøsa enn trolla.
og kongjen tok ordet till sjugur sin :
du har tjent 'a, så ta og behold 'a.

sjugur våga livet for jomfrua.

Sjugur and the troll bride

Versions : #1#2

And the king stood in the passageway
he looked out så vi'e (?).
close out on the green meadow
there he saw sjugur rides.

sjugur risked his life for the young maiden.

I say, that king must have been wild
for he lost his daughter to the mountain,
where the giant and the troll held wedding games
but sjugur had to defend his name (?).

sjugur risked his life for the young maiden.

oh, listen now my sjugur, my daughter is yours,
for you are now a strong gentleman.
if you dare walk into the mountain
and retrieve your beloved one.

sjugur risked his life for the young maiden.

and sjugur let the wedding be
as much as he could pick out (?).
then as he pleaded the large crowd,
as thick as seven could be counted (?).

sjugur risked his life for the young maiden.

you probably thought the bride was a luscious whore
with breasts and hair like sofia.
no nose, she had a nautefjøs, (?)
and eyes that tjønn out into the hillside. (?)

sjugur risked his life for the young maiden.

as the 'catering' was over
and the people began to dance.
sjur dangles with his club, (?)
and every hit (he makes) was felt (?).

sjugur risked his life for the young maiden.

and home came sjugur with the fine princess
better possibilities for tøsa than trolls. (?)
and the king said to sjugur :
you have earned to take and keep her.

sjugur risked his life for the young maiden.

Commentaires de l'auteur(e) :

this translation is not very good, I had a lot of trouble with this text being in a dialect I'm not familiar with.
at first I thought it was Nynorsk, but I'm not even sure about that anymore.
so please, if you could help better/correct my translation, please - either send me the corrections in private or add your own translation.

anyway, this is an old troll song written by a Halling guard at Akershus Castle in 1808.
