Vent ikkje legg på

Da æ kom hjem fra turne i går va' huset tomt og kaldt
Og en liten lapp på stuebordet sku' førrklare alt
Den va' pent signert med kyss og klem og hjerta overalt
Og æ kjente nåkka vått, som smakte salt
 
Æ sprang ned te' telefonen og fant nummere' dett fra før
Det e' viktig at et nederlag blir mottatt med humør
Men da stæmmen din sa: Hei, kæm e' det? – blei æ amatør
Og æ klarte kun å si en masse tøv – A sa:
 
Vent,- ikkje legg på
Prøv å førrstå,- men ikkje legg på
Vent,- ikkje legg på
Si det du må,- men ikkje legg på
 
Med en liten klump i halsen i et øyeblikks panikk
Skreik æ ut: Æ bryr mæ litt! – men fikk te' svar et klikk
Det va' mye mer å snakke om – Æ sku' ha tatt kritikk
Men telefonen tok en sluttreplikk – Æ sa:
 
Vent,- ikkje legg på etc
 
Æ har prøvd å ringe jobben din – Æ traff kun en vikar
Æ har prøvd å ringe hjem te' dæ – Te´slutt så fikk æ svar
Du va' mye mere tjent med en hjemmekjær person
Enn ord og hundre kyss pr. telefon –
 
Vent,- ikkje legg på etc

Wait, don't hang up

When I came home from tour yesterday the house was empty and cold
And a little note on the living room table would explain everything
It was nicely signed with X's and O's and hearts all over
And I felt my neck get wet, it tasted of salt
 
I ran down to the telephone and found the number from before
It's important that a defeat is met cheerfully
But when your voice said "Hey, who is it?" - I became an amateur
And I could only say a bunch of nonsense - I said
 
Wait, don't hang up
Try to understand, but don't hang up
Wait, don't hang up
Say what you must, but don't hang up
 
With a little lump in my throat in a moment's panic
I yelled out "I care a bit!" but got a click in response
There was much more to talk about, I should've taken criticism
But the telephone made a final reply - I said
 
Wait, don't hang up
Try to understand, but don't hang up
Wait, don't hang up
Say what you must, but don't hang up
 
I've tried to call your job, I only got a substitute
I've tried to call you at home, then finally I got an answer
You were doing much better with a dear person
Than words and a hundred kisses by telephone
 
Wait, don't hang up
Try to understand, but don't hang up
Wait, don't hang up
Say what you must, but don't hang up
