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: Som det ser ut när detta skrives så kommer det på torget i Vimmerby att resas en staty av Astrid Lindgren. Detta mot hennes postuma vilja. Men vad hade hon egentligen väntat sig? I Småland vet de hur slipstenar skall dras framför turisternas näsor.
Vimmerby, lika kulturellt som Rinkeby
Kommunalrådet ser solen gry
På taken över Vimmerby

Vimmerby, där gör torghandlarna guld av bly
När turistsäsongen kommer, ty
Då får de pippi, Vimmerby

Gri-se-knoens dar, de är slut, han blev kotlett
Och på A-L-V luktar Ronja Rövarsvett
(svett, svett, svett, svett)

Vimmerby, Astrid Lindgren vill EJ stå staty
Men det skiter Vimmerborna iiii
Turism ger cash till Vimmerby

Mm mm mm mm mm... Vimmerby

Ok, but what's you're point? Is this for the very big Swedish-speaking population visiting this sight?

"?": How can there ever be a very big Swedish-speaking population visiting this site unless someone becomes a pioneer and decides to add another feature to the site? Okey, so the idea on my part was originaly mostly about backup awareness but you never know, Chucky´s looking for ways to broaden the audience, this is a site depending on ads and the bigger audience the more clicks etc. With the high number of Spanish speaking people in the US I guess that a Spanish parody section wouldn´t be a bad idea, and if other Swede should show up (We´ve already had Mr Horse co-wrighting with Canadian wife "Smurf", though they both had to paus for an unforseeable time) maybe one day we will have a Swedish section.

The title means: "Vimmerby". (The name of a city, where I lived for the largest part of two years, and that also happens to be the birth city of the second best writer in Swedish history: Children's books writer Astrid Lindgren). :-)

Jag är trots allt inte den enda svensktalande som läser de här sidorna. Skickligt gjort, här får du tre femmor till!
