The Lyrics

This is one of my song parodies in Swedish. In the spirit of backup awareness Chucky has given me permission to post them here along with my others. Thank you Chucky! And now for the Swedish introduction to this particular song: Introduktion är väl rätt ord i sammanhanget om man säger så...
Kafkaesk
Som en känguru i Torneträsk
Som en semla fylld med lök å fläsk
Min rimsmedja e kafkaesk

Kafkaesk
Som en aladåb e statyesk
Som en sockerdricka som e besk
Min rimsmedja e kafkaesk

Varför e de så, ja har aldrig hinkat bäsk
Men de blitt ändå att min stil e helt burlesk

Kafkaesk
Som en feminist som luktar mäsk
Som ett vallöfte helt utan fjäsk
Min rimsmedja e kafkaesk

Varför e de så, ja har aldrig hinkat bäsk
Men de blitt ändå att min stil e helt burlesk

Kafkaesk
Som en hälsokostbutik me läsk
Som en dalahäst men lätt grotesk
Min rimsmedja e kafkaesk

The title means, well, no giveaways for guessing "kafkaesque". :-)

555 for you, I have NO idea at all what this means, but it looks paced well anyway ( for Swedish ). Probably not the first parody done in a foreign language completely, and even if I could translate it may not rhyme at all in english. But you get the 555 for ability to speak 2 languages ( atleast ). PS to all---You may know this already, but if you place a vote on an older parody you may very well wipe out all previous votes, confirmed by Chuck G himself. :)

KTOS, but DKTPL (parody language) - it's possible there might be others about to post this comment - but gee it looks beautiful on the page K1!!

I can't speak Swedish, but I know enough to make out a few words here and there, and I can also tell that this parody perfectly matches the pace of the original. Anybody care to translate?

Thankx Red Ant, Stuart and Olvan. I've been working on this one off and on for a couple of weeks and I guess it does "looks beautiful on the page" in a way with all the lines 2-3 starting the same way and every line throughout rhyming with each over. All the lines 2-3 are also absurd/kafkaesque metaphors that I made up especially for this song. I'll try to translate the first just to give you an idea.

Som en känguru i Torneträsk
Like/As a kangaroo in Torneträsk (a city to the very far north of Sweden and the word 'träsk" also means 'swamp'/'quagmire')
Som en semla fylld med lök å fläsk
Like/As a fat tuesday bun filled with onions and bacon.
Etc
