Laila sent this song with the note: "Here are 2 songs that I remember from my childhood. I was born in 1943 in Stockholm. I sang the following song on Farbror Svens Radio programme, Sveriges Radio, in about 1949 when I was 6 years old.

Min docka, min pojke,
Vad jag älskar dig,
Du har ingen annan,
Utan nån annan än mig

(Rough English Translation:
My doll, my boy;
How I love you,
You have nobody else;
Without someone other than me.)

It may have had more verses but, if so, I don't remember them.

The song I wanted to sing on the Radio, but to my mother's relief, I did not sing, was ("En rallare, en rallare, på Roslagsgatan gick", the song at the top of the page)."
