lyrics

NORWEGIAN:

I ei stue nedpå Bærum
var det en gong løstig lag
Døm spelte kort og tura
Døm banna og huserte grovt

Mea døm satt der
med svarte natta utaføre
Vart det vedda om en kar
tørte å gå tel kjerka i kveldinga

Det vakke rektig trygt
å stikke huet innafor kjerka
For i gången stod en dauing
døm kalte for Tørrhard

Han stod der som et minne
for han hadde gjort meneid
Avtruisk hadde’n vøri
så’n kunne itte råtne i jorda

Døm erta karen opp
så han gjekk rakt tel Tanom
Med beksvart skau
på alle kanter

Om ei stynn var’n framkømmin
fekk krongla seg over kjerkegårdsmurn
Full som ei alke og stø som ei osp
gjekk’n nedover kjerkegången

Da’n klyva framom dauingen
kjente’n en som greip’n i oksla
Han Tørrhard høldt’n fast med jerngrep
og døm utaføre hørte’n skreik som en gris

Det var nok en som vart
edru ganske brått
Da mårran kom og’n Tørrhard slapp
var mann’ mest kvit som snø

ENGLISH:

In a cabin in Bærum
all was jamboree
They gambled and boozed;
and swore and brawled

As they sat there
with the black of night outside
they dared one of the guys
to sneak into the Tanum church at night

It wasn’t safe
to visit the church at night
Because in the hallway stood a dead guy
whose name was Dry Bones

He stood there as a warning
as he had taken a false oath
He’d been of ungodly faith
so he couldn’t rot in holy ground

They taunted their friend
and he went straight to the church
with pitch black woods
all around him

After a while he arrived
and climbed the cemetery wall
Drunk as a skunk and unsteadily stumbling
down along the church aisle

As he walked past the dead guy
he felt someone take hold of his shoulder
Dry Bones had him in an iron grip
and his friends outside heard him squeal like a pig

I guess that you could say
he sobered up real quick
When the morning came and Dry Bones let him go
the man was pale as snow
