ABBA – Hej gamle man tekst piosenki

Han stĺr pĺ torget varje dag

En vänlig gammal man

Hans hĺr är lite grĺnat

Under mössans röda band

Med blanka knappor i sin rock

Och bössan i sin hand

Han vet nog ganska väl

Vad vi vill frĺga om ibland

Hej gamle man

Kan du visa oss den väg som vi ska gĺ

För at fĺ komma dit som vi vill nĺ

Hej gamle man

Kanske är det vi som gör nĺgot fel ändĺ

Du har ju allt som vi har svĺrt att fĺ

Han verkar kanske trött ibland

Vem skulle väl rĺ med

Att lysa upp en väg för nĺgon

Som aldrig kunnat se

Men trots att han har stott där nu

I alla dessa ĺr

Sĺ verkar det pĺ honom som har kommit dit igĺr

Hej gamle man

Kan du visa oss den väg som vi ska gĺ

För at fĺ komma dit som vi vill nĺ

Hej gamle man

Kanske är det vi som gör nĺgot fel ändĺ

Du har ju allt som vi har svĺrt att fĺ

English Translation for Hej Gamle Man

HELLO OLD MAN

(B.Andersson/B.Ulvaeus/N.Kreysing/J.Ahonen/P.Reynolds)

Translated from the original Swedish 1995

He stands on the market every day

A friendly old man

His hair is just a little grey

Below his hat’s red band

With shiny buttons on his coat

And a cash-box in his hand

He seems to know quite well

What we are asking for sometimes

Hello old man

Can you show us the way we have to go?

So we can reach where we’re wanting to

Hello old man

Maybe it’s folk like us that get things wrong sometimes

You have got all the things we find hard to get

Although he seems quite tired sometimes

Out there, he’ll always be

To light a way for someone

Who could not otherwise see

But although he has been standing there

For many years, each day

It seems as if he had just arrived yesterday

Hello old man

Can you show us the way we have to go?

So we can reach where we’re wanting to

Hello old man

Maybe it’s folk like us that get things wrong sometimes

You have got all the things we find hard to get
