The song I have written over from Norwegian to English is a song I like very much, and it is a typical Norwegian song in my opinion. The group that wrote this song is called DDE and the people in the group is around 40-50 years old.
He comes in over Svinesund with the truck almost empty.
He must up to Bodø before it’s too late
And he notices that he should had a nap.
Last stop was in Hamburg, when they loaded on.
And a coffee cup when he crossed Øresund.
He takes the risk that UP has taken of for the night.
Through Østfold he uses his gas pedal.
Like it’s the matter of life and death.
He drives E6, the straight way. Maybe someone lays in her hand now.
Han kjæm inn over Svinesund med trailern nesten tom.
Han må opp te Bodø før det e for seint.
Og han kjenne at han skulla hatt en blund.
Siste stoppen var I Hamburg, mens dæm lasta om.
Og en kaffekopp da han kryssa Öresund.
Han tar sjansen på at UP har avspasert I kveld.
Gjennom Østfold bruke han gasspedal’n.
Som e det liv det gjeld.
Han kjøre E6, den strakast vei’n.
Kanskje ligg det no’n I arman hennes no.
The theme in this is that this guy who I driving this truck is on his way to the hospital. His girlfriend is about to give birth to a child. The song is about him needing to be at the hospital before the kid is born. Maybe the writer of this song has gone through this himself, I don’t know, but maybe. Goal group of this song is adults and young people, because they can go through this kind of situation them self. I have never seen this band or group live playing this song or anything like that, but I like to hear to his song some times.
Here is a link to the song on YouTube if you want to listen to it; it is of course on Norwegian: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AozJWhnKv48
Hope you enjoyed this song.
