FOR LÆNG LÆNG SIND
Text: Jeppe Aakjær, 1927

Skuld' gammel venskab rejn forgo
og stryges fræ wor mind?
Skuld gammel venskab rejn forgo
med dem daw så læng læng sind?

De skjønne ungdomsdaw, åja,
di daw så svær å find,
vi'el løwt wor kop så glådle op
for dem daw så læng, læng sind.


Og gi så kuns de glajs en top
og vend en med di' kaw',
vi'el ta ino en jenle kop,
for dem swunden gammel daw.

De skjønne...

Vi tow - hwor hår vi rend om kap
i'æ grønn så manne gång,
Men al den trawen verden rundt,
hår nu gjord æ bjenn lidt tång.

De skjønne...

Vi wojed sammel i æ bæk,
fræ gryn, til høns war ind.
Så kam den haw og skil wos ad,
å, hwor er æ læng, læng sind.

De skjønne...

Der er mi hånd, do gamle svend,
ræk øwer og gi mæ dind,
hwor er æ skøn å find en ven,
en håj mist for læng, læng sind.

De skjønne...

NOTE: Jeppe Aakjær's translation of Robert Burns' Auld Lang Syne. Used especially in Jutland (which is also the accent used) for gatherings and farewells.

TUNE: The same as for Auld Lang Syne :P

Oh, and on another note: This song is mostly known to the population under the name of 'Skuld gammel venskab rejn forgo' or just 'Skuld gammel venskab', though Aakjær's own title indeed was 'For læng, læng sind' (source).

I have heard that speaking Danish is quite difficult
though i know my ancestors did it-I would be interested
in learning. I undersatnd there is on song about a church
(KIRK) that has an image in it of bringing grain to the
birds. or saving some of the harvest from threshing to
share with wildlife. Do you have this one?

Look at the note, this song is a translation of Robert Burns' Auld Lang Syne, of which there is five versions in the DT...

Oh, and I do think I know of which song you're talking... it's called 'Marken er mejet' (roughly translatable to: the field is harvested)... I'll add it next just for you :)

Sorry. I meant to hit "add to tracer" and I hit "submit" instead.
As long as I'm here, though, thanks for posting these lyrics, Freso.
