Valravn "Harra Pætur Og Elinborg" Liedtext

Übersetzung nach: EN

Harra Pætur og Elinborg
børn vóru tey so ung
løgdu sínum ástum saman,
mong eru forløg tung.
-- Nú lystir meg í dansin at gá,
meðan rósur og liljur tær grógva væl

Bíða vil egi sjey vetur
móti frænda vilja,
giftast ikki livandi manni,
um enn meg kongur gilar
-- Nú lystir meg í dansin at gá,
meðan rósur og liljur tær grógva væl

Tekkur hon allar myggjarnar,
setir saman í ring,
tekur upp ein silvursaks
og klippar hár umkring

Tekur hon allar myggjanar
sker teim iddarakæði,
ganga tær til strandar oman,
sum Elin fyri var

Enntá var tad Elinborg,
dregur upp á seg glógva,
so gár hon til stýri at stá,
og ternurnar at rógva
-- Nú lystir meg í dansin at gá,
meðan rósur og liljur tær grógva væl

Úti í miðjum grasgarði,
akslar hon sítt skinn,
og so búgvin gongur hon
í høgar hallir inn

Væl siti tær harra Pætur
og tann danska frú
plaga so allir høviskir menn
at halda sína trú?

Liv nú væl, frú Ingibjørg,
við títt elvagangi!
eg havi nú fingið mín festarmann,
eg lænti tær so leingi
-- Nú lystir meg í dansin at gá,
meðan rósur og liljur tær grógva væl

Mr. Peter and Elinborg
They were children, so young
Understood love for each other
But destiny is heavy
- Now I feel like going to the dance,
whilst roses and lilies grow well

I will wait for seven nights,
against my family's will
would not wed a living man
not even if he were the king
- Now I feel like going to the dance,
whilst roses and lilies grow well

She gathers all the girls
together in a ring
she takes a silver scissor
and clips hair around

She gathers all the girls
makes them the clothes of knights
then they all walk down to the beach
where Elin stands

So it was Elinborg
taking her jewelry on
then she walks to the control stick
and the terns begin to row
- Now I feel like going to the dance,
whilst roses and lilies grow well

Out on the middle of the lawn
she axles her skin*
and thus she goes,
into the tall halls

Sit well, mr. Peter
and the danish lady
Is it like this that esteemed men
keep their promises?

Live well, mrs. Ingibjørg
with your elvish food
now I have found my betrothed*
I lent you for so long
- Now I feel like going to the dance,
whilst roses and lilies grow well
