Saimaan Rannalla

Satuin kerran näkemään pienen venoisen
hylättynä rannalla Saimaan aalloille
 
Mitä itket venoinen puinen purteni
valkopurjeinen Saimaan rannalla
 
Sitä itken poloinen kun ei ole viejää vesille
siniselle Saimaalle selville selille
Mieluummin honkana kankaalla kuin murehtia rannalla
Mieluummin saunahirtenä kuin yksin Saimaalla
 
Älä itke venoinen puinen purteni
valkopurjeinen minä vien sinut vesille
siniselle Saimaalle selville selille
katsomaan Savonlinnan laivoja Lappeenrannan toreja

At The Shore Of Saimaa

Once i happened to see a small boat
Abandoned on a beach on the waves of Saimaa1
 
What you cry for my wooden sloop
White-sailed on the shore of Saimaa
 
I cry that i don't have anyone to take [me] on the waters
To the blue Saimaa to the open waters
Rather as a pine on the barrens than worry on the beach
Rather as log in the sauna than alone on Saimaa
 
Don't cry boat my wooden sloop
White-sailed i'll take you to the waters
To the blue Saimaa to the open waters
To see ships of Savonlinna marketplaces of Lappeenranta
 
  • 1. Largest lake in Finland.
