Ensam går jag här och vankar - Swedish Children's Songs - Sweden - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image

Notes

Edward sent this version as "a possible translation that could be sung..."

Alone I walk on paths I know
Looking for a friendly face

Alone I walk on paths I know
Looking for a friendly face

I look to meet him once again
The one whose love is in my heart

I want to see you once again
And dance again with you my love.

Comments

Edward wrote, "Here is another song that we sang in the Saint Lucia performance. Although it is neither a Christmas song nor a Saint Lucia song. However, the melody is very pretty.

This song is a polska. A polska is a dance in Polish style, which is a Mazurka or Oberdek not a polka."
