This imaginary song features in the Father Ted episode ‘A Song For Europe’. When Dougal and Ted hear this B-side of an old Eurovision song by Norwegian band ‘Nin Huugen and the Huugen Notes’, they decide to re-use the music for their own song, ‘My Lovely Horse’.

So, the song is very similar to ‘My Lovely Horse’, but don’t have proper lyrics. Neil just hums fake Norwegian lyrics.

We don’t hear the whole song on the episode, just a few seconds from an old 45’s. But a proper studio version of it may exist…
