Sá ég spóa

Lyrics - Icelandic

(Folk song from Iceland)

Sá ég spóa
Suður í flóa,
Syngur lóa út um móa
“Bí, bí, bí, bí,”
Vorið er komið víst á ný.

English Translation - I saw a curlew*

I saw a curlew*
To the south, on the wetland,
The golden plover is singing out on the moor
“Bí, bí, bí, bí,”
Spring has come again, for sure.
