THE WOLF SONG Lyrics – Nordic Lullaby

Lyrics in Swedish + English translation

Vargen ylar i nattens skog
(The wolf is howling in the forest of the night)
Han vill men kan inte sova
(He wants to, but cannot sleep)
Hungern river i hans varga buk
(The hunger is scratching his wolfen stomach)
Och det är kallt i hans stova
(And it’s cold in his burrow)

Du varg du varg, kom inte hit
(Wolf, wolf, don’t you come here)
Ungen min får du aldrig
( I will never let you take my child)

Vargen ylar i nattens skog
(The wolf is howling in the forest of the night)
Ylar av hunger o klagar
(Howling out of hunger and moaning)
Men jag ska ge’n en grisa svans
(But I will give him a pig tail)
Sånt passar i varga magar
(That’s what the wolfen stomach needs)

Du varg du varg, kom inte hit
(Wolf, wolf, don’t you come here)
Ungen min får du aldrig
( I will never let you take my child)

…(First verse again)

Ronja Rövardotter / Ronia the robbers daugther” written by our most loved Swedish writer, Astrid Lindgren , whose books have been read for children all over the world. This song from the movie has always been very dear to me, especially as I was a child. But still now, as an adult, I feel so much for this song.
