The Lyrics

You've probably heard of the two Norwegians in Congo? Or not? Well, this is a song dedicated to Tjostolv Moland, one of the men. (And by the way, I'm Norwegian myself, so just don't be too harsh if the English in the song is bad.) Hang in there, Tjostolv!
See the beardy men there? They're from Norway, alright.
When they arrived Congo, they made everyone fight.
Look at them now - theyre pathetic now
Without control - now whole Congo has gone berserk, they call Joshua French a jerk!
Now there's quarrels between the two lands - it is Congo and Norway we mean - ladidada.

Tjostolv Moland!
He's in Congo now.
My, my, no one ever knew him.
He's imprisoned now, the Congolese have said:
"My, my - you've commited murder!"

Yes! He's now brokenhearted.
"Can't the trial get started?"
My, my - Moland's in a trouble now!
Tjostolv Moland - he's Norwegian.
My, my - that's why he's so valuable.

Congo's angry and sad about things he has done.
Tjostolv he is just glad that Støhre has gone [1].
Though he's in jail, he has stuck to it
He'll never fail, he's Norwegian that is true - his accent is like a gruel.

Now he's even caught the malaria.
Bet he misses both papa and mama - ladidadi

Tjostolv Moland!
He was almost doomed - TIMES FIVE!
That is not just peanuts.
Sky high ransom.
30 billions.
My, my, Norway can't afford it.

He has submitted appeal
But he has no shield
when he's down in BongoCongoland.

Tjostolv Moland!
Bet he will be killed
'cause the - Congolese are crazy!

Tjostolv Moland!
Should have got a comb
but the - Congolese are crazy.

Tjostolv Moland
and his buddy French
Josh-ua is right there by his side.

Bongo Congo.
has a crazy legal system
Oh no - what shall Moland do now?

They have been there a long time
and they are full of grime
My, my - no wonder they are longing home.

Tjostolv Moland
and his buddy French.
Josh-ua French and Tjostolv Moland.
[1] Støhre is Jonas Gahr Støhre, the Norwegian foreign minister, who has helped Moland and French very little in Congo. NB! May be very difficult to follow, since some words have to be pronounced in a Norwegian way.

Ahh...Norge! Your English is far superior to my non-existent Norwegian. Welcome to you. ;)

As for the song: Well at least some of the lines paced good enough to not be a crime against the original

As for the story: With a name like Tjostolv Moland his parents should be the ones on trial, and if he himself should be on trial for anything it should be for stupidity, a two metre high Norweigian with a name like that trying to do undercover commando work in the darkest part of Africa! I'm almost tempted to write about it myself, hmmm.... doesn't Toto's "Africa" start something like "follow the fjords down to Africa..."

Just kidding, welcome to Amiright, I'm Peter from Sweden and we also have Susanna Viljanen from Finland but no Danes so far as far as I know.

Thanks guys! I know the lines aren't always pacing, but as Petter Solberg says (you know, the Norwegian rally driver who sucks in English): "Well well, it's not only only, but but."
