MIDSOMMAR

(to the tune of These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things)

Sill and potatis, and strawberries too,
Dance round the pole because they tell you to,
Act out små grådarna in a big ring,
Although you know it’s a quite foolish thing,
More nursery rhymes acted out willy nilly,
But just a few schnapps and you don’t feel so silly,
With all of the food, and the drink thrown your way,
No wonder it feels like the longest day,
Friends and family
Get together,
Full of fun and cheer,
And if you’re not a Swede,
It’s still generally agreed,
It’s the most Swedish you’ll feel,
All year!

One thought on “MIDSOMMAR

  1. Love it! This piece has a good point, though. I think that in order to truly enjoy or appreciate midsummer, one has to be Swedish.

English, motherfucker, do you speak it? J/K - it's ok if you don't.
