a short site about The Divine Comedy

French version

Sweden

Live version (4:33)

Woman in the audience: You rock!
Neil: The lady over there said: “you rock!”. Often I may reply to people in the audience and lot, 95% of the people in the audience don’t know what I’m replying to, but she said: “you rock!”, you didn’t hear that, that’s okay, and I say: “yes Sweden”. But it takes time to rock, that’s an art and, you know, we’re just trying to take our time to perfect that art and we dedicate a lot of rock to that great rock nation, Sweden!

I would like to
Live in Sweden
When my work is done,
Where the snow lies
Crisp and even
‘Neath the midnight sun.

Fresh and
Clean and
Green and
Modern
Bright and breezy,
Free and easy.

Sweden,
Sweden,
Sweden,
In Sweden.

I am gonna
Live in Sweden,
Please don’t ask me why.
For if I were to
Give a reason
It would be a lie.

Tall and
Strong and
Blonde and
Blue-eyed
Pure and healthy,
Very wealthy.

Sweden,
Sweden,
Sweden.

I’ll grow wings and fly to Sweden
When my time is come.
Then at last my eyes shall see them,
Heroes every one:
Ingmar Bergman,
Henrik Ibsen,
Karin Larsson,
Nina Persson.

Sweden,
Sweden,
Sweden,
In Sweden.
