Sold away (Den Bortsålda)

traducere în Engleză

Sold away

There lived a gentleman on Sartavalla Island
He sold his daughter all for a half a loaf of bread
May you wander the land of the Jews
 
The sailors cast their oars overboard
The beautiful maid she wrings her hands till they bleed
Oh my dear sailors wait a moment
For I see my brother coming in the rosy grove
 
Oh my dear brother you haven´t more than two shimmering horses
One you can sell, and release me again
I do not want to wander in the lands of the Jews
 
Oh yes I have only two shimmering horses
But neither can I sell to release you again
May you come to wander in the lands of the Jews
 
The sailors cast their oars overboard
The beautiful maid she wrings her hands till they bleed
Oh my dear sailors wait a moment
For I see my loved one coming in the rosy grove
 
Oh my dear one, you haven´t more than two golden rings
One you can sell and release me again
I do not wish wander in the lands of the Jews
 
I haven´t more than two golden rings
One shall I sell, the other shall be yours
You won´t be wandering in the land of the Jews

Den Bortsålda

Det bodde en herre på Sartavalla ö
Han sålde sin dotter alltför en halva brö
Du må nu komma till det Judiska land till att vandra
 
Sjömännerna de kasta sina åror över bord
Skön jungfrun hon vrider sina händer uti blod
Å kära mina sjömänner i vänten en stund
Jag ser min broder komma i rosende lund
