a short site about The Divine Comedy

French version

Sweden

Original version (3:26)

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

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

Sweden,
Sweden, Sverige
Sweden,
Sweden, Sverige
Sweden,
Sweden, Sverige
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, Sverige
Sweden,
Sweden, Sverige
Sweden,
Sweden. Sverige

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, Sweden
Sweden, Sweden
In Sweden.
