Ramunder

Versions: #1#2#3#4
And Ramund he stepped on the ship
And it creaked in every corner
And all of the men that was on the ship
They thought they were all dead
We will not die here said Ramund
We sail as well as we did before said Ramund the young
 
Then they sailed over the big sea
Into the land of the giants
And Ramund walked further inland
There he saw the big giant Stande
Now i have come here said Ramund
Without much trouble said Ramund the young
 
Oh my dear Ramund please spare my life
And dont do me any harm
Seven barrels of gold i shall give to you
They shall shine like the bright sun
I will take that when i want said Ramund
You still dont get to live said Ramund the young
 
The first grapple they had
They took hold of each other by their hands
And Ramund grabbed the giants beard and pulled
So that the flesh loosened from the teeth
What a terrible grin you have said Ramund
And worse you look said Ramund the young
 
And ramund he drew his large sword
The one he calls Domlingen dyre
Then he chopped of the big ones head
Which not even fifften oxes could move
I dident think it would cut said Ramund
But it cut well enough said Ramund the young
 
And Ramund he loaded the seven ships
With gold and precious stones
Then he sailed over the big sea
Into the emperors land
Now i have come here said Ramund
And without much trouble said Ramund the young
 
And Ramund he grabbed the door with might
So that all the walls crumbled
And the windows blew out of their frames
And the stones crumbled into a pile
Did you see i got in said Ramund
Now its your hide on the line said Ramund the young
 
Oh my dear Ramund please spare my life
And dont do me any harm
Half my kingdom i want to give to you
And also my youngest daughter
I will take that when i want said Ramund
And your daughter too said Ramund the young
 
And Ramund he drew his large sword
The one he calls Domlingen dyre
Then he chopped of the emperors head
It flew fifteen spanish miles
I dident think it would cut said Ramund
But it cut well enough said Ramund the young.
 
Thanks!

I think i did a pretty good job with it. by trying to keep the lyrics as correct as possible. And it still making sense, and being kinda singable.
I dident find any swedish word for Domlingen. But i found Dymling which is a kind of nail. and dyre means expensive or costly, dear to me. So the Costly Nail was the only thing i could come up with. And i wasent sure that was completely correct so i just used the original word.
