Or maybe it's O Min Flaskan Friða. (whatever)

Does anyone have the lyrics for this?

I found a few references to O MIN FLASKAN FRIDA, but no lyrics. One source calls it Danish, another calls it Icelandic.

The following albums contain it:

Schola Cantorum Reykjavicensis, "Two-Part Polyphony," Smekkleysa CD, 2006.        

Marta Guðrún Halldóttir & Orn Magnússon, "Íslenskþjóðlög," Smekkleysa CD 2, 2000.

Various Artists (The Hamrahlid Choir), "Icelandic Folksongs," Hastedt CD 805, 1995.

This information is from Allmusic.com.

I found words but no translation.

Ó, mín flaskan fríða!
Flest ég vildi líða,
frostið fár og kvíða
fyrr en þig að missa.
Mundi' ég mega kyssa
munninn þinn, þinn, þinn?
munninn þinn, þinn, þinn?
Munninn þinn svo mjúkan finn,
meir en verð ég hissa.

The site identifies it as Icelandic for whatever that's worth.

Google Translate identifies it as Icelandic and translates it thus:

Oh, my bottle alone!
Most I would feel,
Frost go and anxiety
Until you miss.
Mundi' I may kiss
Your mouth, your, yours?
Your mouth, your, yours?
Your mouth feel so soft,
More than I surprised.

I actually found a little bit better translation on youtube.com where the Icelandic Voces Thules perform this song in fifths: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgl1px-R8Rs
You can find it in the comments.
