Siw Malmkvist - Läs inte brevet jag skrev dig (English translation)

English translation

Don't Read the Letter I Wrote You

Oh, don't read the letter I wrote you,
My tears are falling drip by drip.
Don't read the letter I wrote you;
And accident happens so easily!
 
Dearest Magnus, forgive me,
I made a mistake yesterday.
The lines I wrote to you then,
Will soon arrive to you by mail.
 
Oh, don't read the letter I wrote you;
Please return both the photo and the ring!
Don't read the letter I wrote you,
I didn't mean it at all!
 
Sure, you're a little bit chubby,
but no big elephant at all!
I think you're cute,
So how could I call you a dork?!
 
Oh, don't read the letter I wrote you;
Why should our happiness end so suddenly?!
Don't read the letter I wrote you,
I'm just as much in love as before!
 
Right now, so lonely and cold,
I read about the sensation in the paper,
How you got1 twohundredthousand
On your old bond
 
Oh, don't read the letter I wrote you,
My tears are falling drip by drip.
Don't read the letter I wrote you;
And accident happens so easily!
Oh, an accident happens so easily!

There might be more room for improvement than usual, since I did it very quickly.
