Red Dressed

Her stendur ein hirðgenta
Úr postalíni
Hon, sum tú arvaði
Frá ommu tíni (x2)
 
Gongur bleikreyðum stakki
Og bláum summarhatti
Lofthavið uppi yvir
Flakrin á bønum
Andar í somu litum
 
Nú vaðar hon út í sjódýpið
Heystgula sólin
Hyggur afturum seg
Sorgblíð og heit
 
So sorgblíð og heit
 
(eg) Veit, hon kennur bláman
Sum sýgur seg inn í skjúrtuni
Ein skýggi av hirðgentuni
Dansar á vegginum (x2)

Red Dressed

Here stands a sweet girl
Made of fine China
Like you inherited
From your grandmother
 
She wears a pale red dress
And a blue summer hat
The atmosphere above
Blowing on her legs
Breathing in the same colors
 
Now she's wading out in the deep
The autumn-gold sun
Looking after her
Gloomy and warm
 
So gloomy and warm
 
I know she feels the rough sea
As it sucks in her skirt
A cloud around all her
Dancing on the cliff
 
Thanks!
