Norwegian folklore song. Lyrics: The man went into the woods, 1
Hey fara into the woods.
When a crow sat in the meadow and crawed.
Hey fara. Faltu riltu raltura 2
The man thought with himself;
I wonder if that crow wants to kill me?
And the man drew his bow on his knees
Then he shot the crow so she fell down.
Then he harnessed up the ten foals3
But the crow blew all of them
Then he flayed the crow and butchered her up,
She weigthed nearly sixteen and twenty pounds.
From the skin he made twelve pairs of shoes,
The best pair he gave to mother.
The meat he salted in barrels and casks,
And the tounge he had for jule food.
The mouth he used to grind grains
And of the ears he made musical horns
Of the eyes he made window glas
And the neck he put as adornment on the church
And those who cannot use a crow like this,
Hey fara, use a crow like this.
He is not worthy of a crow to get.
Hey fara. Faltu riltu raltura
