The Lyrics

This song resulted from a family trip this past summer. Our few days there were packed with excellent sightseeing excursions. The weather was as good as it gets in Iceland (minimal rain, not interfering with our travels). The highlight of the trip was the recently opened IceCave excursion; after a palpitating ride by giant truck over a huge ice-field, we walked into a system of tunnels in the glacier itself, led by an excellent and informative guide. The Icelandic language, a venerable tongue, which has apparently changed little since the first settlers came to the island in the 9th century, seems challenging to learn. Fortunately for us, the friendly locals we encountered, at least in Reykjavik, all spoke English quite well. Ísland = Iceland , pronounced eess-lant. góðan daginn = good morning, hello, pronounced goh-than day-in. Eyjafjallajökull (j's pronounced as y) = Island-Mountain-icecap, the subglacial volcano whose brief eruption caused the Icelandic ash problem in 2010; the volcano has now been considered dormant for over 5 years.
This year we flew with Icelandair
Europe-bound and stopped halfway there.
We left TO, our kids from DC,
A meet-up trip for our family.

Oh, Ísland, land of sun
Nights stay bright for the month of June;
Four full days, awesome sights to praise
Geysers, glaciers, volcanoes
And Blue Lagoon.

A neat idea, break our trip
Meet at hotel-suite in Reykjavik.
Restos coped with vegg-necessity
And one kid GF lactose-free.

Didn’t know, but they’re eco-smart
Geo-thermal at system’s heart
Hot water piped everywhere you see
Heat all home and greenhouse for free.

Oh, Ísland, northern light
Four full days touring awesome sights
Hotel choose, or your sleep you’ll lose
Weekends downtown bars
Never close at night.

Recent attraction, not to skip
Monster truck, glacier Ice-Cave trip
Bundle up, walk though colored ice
See crevasse, bottom-up is nice.

Oh, Ísland, isle of fun
Nights stay bright for the month of June
Four full days, awesome sights to praise
Close with steamy bathing
At Blue Lagoon.

We'll greet old friends - “góðan daginn”, soon
When we go back some year in June
Next time stay longer, get my fill -
Climb, and say, “Eyjafjallajökull”.

Oh, Ísland, isle of sun
Nights stay bright for the month of June;
More full days, awesome sights to praise
Geysers, glaciers, volcanoes
And Blue Lagoon.
