Sockerbagaren was originally the Danish song called, (Der bor en bager på Nørregade).

Notes

Lyrics and music by Alice Tegnér (1864-1943).

According to Wikipedia, "Sockerbagaren is a Danish song rewritten by Alice Tegnér that was published in volume 3 of Sjung med oss, mamma! in 1895.

Song lyrics refer to a pastry chef. The final lines were originally; Och har du pengar så kan du få, men har du inga så får du gå. (And if you have money you can get it, but if you nave none, so you can go). Elsa Beskow, who illustrated many of Alice Tegnér's songbooks, is said to have disliked this, and proposed instead the lyrics with 'snäller' and 'stygger'. The song is heavily associated with Saint Lucy and Christmas, with references to 'Christmas tree' decorations and 'gingerbread'.
