"Old man" (Äijö)

Inglês translation

"Old man"

Versões: #1#2#3
Old man from the village, old windmill
Old man from the village, not so bright
Od man from the village, strange runt
 
Old man from the village, bowlegged
Old man from the village, on the cool hill
Old man from the village, viper on his rip/loin
 
Squalled in the woods in the night, alone
Squalled in the woods firebrand is his hand
His hands in smoke his shoes in the groung/heath
Alone in the night, sleepy old man
 
In the cool hill, viper in the bind
One in up two down
Had bitten the old man
gave rise to itch, had spittled on him
 
Old man alone in the night turned around
In the doorstep waited for the viper
Wanted to cut his head, the evil
The throat of the viper to be cut by the ax
 
Old man, old windmill
got tired with less
even the stronger ones, just could not cope
Old man very tired
 
Old ma tried to heal the bite by the devil
dowsed with booze, washed with liquor
applied tar, bathed with warmth
Sung spells, conjured in his hut
 
People in the village wondered behaviour of the old man in the village
his turnings around, his fights
strange behaviour of roach backed vipers
puffings of the old man in loneliness of the night

Great! Thanks! The song is so "dark" and great! Love Finnish folk-ethnic songs!

Hello, one part was missing from the end of the original lyrics so I added it.
