Lyrics - Swedish

(Swedish folk song)

Små grodorna, små grodorna är lustiga att se. (repeat)
Ej öron, ej öron, ej svansar hava de. (repeat)
Ko ack ack aw, ko ack ack aw, ko ack ack ack ack aw. (repeat)

Små grisarna, små grisarna är lustiga att se. (repeat)
Båd ören, båd ören, och svansar hava de. (repeat)
Å nöff, nöff, nöff, å nöff, nöff, nöff, å nöff, nöff, nöff, nöff, nöff. (repeat)

English Translation – The Little Frogs

The little frogs, the little frogs are funny to observe. (repeat)
No ears, no ears, no tails do they possess. (repeat)
Ribbit… (repeat)

The little pigs, the little pigs are funny to observe. (repeat)
Both ears, both ears and tails do they possess. (repeat)
Oink… (repeat)
