lyrics

Ólán


Ég bíð þín bakvið Suðurver, niðrí gryfju í nótt.
En flýttu þér því í maínóttinni birtir fljótt.
Ólán,
Skugga mínum sker ég bráðum af.

Tökum sjéns og treystum gulrauðri sólinni
Hún skuldar mér fyrir kyðlinginn sem ég ól ‘enni
Ólán,
Baki mínu hristi bráðum af.

Ég hef heyrt að þeir gef’ann góðan í Noregi
Erfitt er að finna staðreynd sem er sorglegri.
Óró,
Huga mínum frelsi veiti frá.

En hittu mig bakvið Suðuver, niðrí gryfju í nótt.
Léttklædd, berfætt, við eigum stefnumót.
Til sólar
Við göngum mót og lítum aldrei við.
