Kristin wrote to me looking for help with a song:
I was surfing and stumbled upon your site and I’m hoping you can help me. My Mother learned a song from her Grandmother. In fact, she remembers the song being sung to her every night as a child. My Great-Grandmother spoke little English and my Mother did not speak Swedish, so she never really got a translation. I’m also certain that my Mom is not really singing the words correctly either. I would love more than anything to find the words and translation for her because my Mother is now trying to teach the song to my children.
I’m going to type it out the first two lines as I hear it – I don’t know any Swedish at all…
Ocher (Aucher?) Lit Lit
Er bord sen tieden
Another option is that I record the tune as I know it and send it.
I know this is a total long shot. Thanks for taking a look.
If anyone can help Kristin with the lyrics to this song and/or an English translation, please let us know in the comments below.
Kristin, if you’d like to email me the tune, that might help! Thanks!
