Lyrics

Morgonsol glittrar i viken
Dagen gryr, sista gång blinkar Hanö fyr
Ser du vår segelbåt, hör du musiken?
När vi styr mot ett nytt äventyr

Nynna en sång, tralla en trall
Gnola en låt som minner om sommar
Känn hur det doftar ifrån salta hav

När vi nynnar en sång, trallar en trall
Gnolar en låt som minner om sommar
Sjung om en härlig sommardag

Vind från öst, rykande vågor och vita gäss
Svällande segel som slår när vi går mot vår ö

I en vik kastar vi ankar
Tar ett dopp, har det skönt på en solvarm häll
Innan i sakta mak hemåt vi vankar
Över ön i en skön sommarkväll

Nynna en sång, tralla en trall
Gnola en låt som minner om sommar
Känn hur det doftar ifrån salta hav

När vi nynnar en sång, trallar en trall
Gnolar en låt som minner om sommar
Sjung om en härlig sommar, sommar

Lalalala lalalala…
Lalala lala lalala lala…
La la lalala lala lalala…

Lala lalalala lalalala…
Lalala lala lalala lala…
Sjung om en härlig sommar…
Härliga dag, härliga sommardag

The morning sun glitters in the bay
The day dawns, and for the last time the Hanö lighthouse flashes
Can you see our sailing boat, can you hear the music?
As we steer towards a new adventure

Hum a song, sing a melody
Hum a tune that reminds you of summer
Feel the scent of the salty seas

As we’re humming a song, singing a melody
Humming a tune that reminds you of summer
Sing about a lovely summer’s day

Wind from the east, steaming waves and whitecaps
Filling sails that flap as we go towards our island

In a bay we cast anchor
Have a dip, have a good time on a flat rock, warmed by the sun
Before we walk home at an easy pace
On the island on a nice summer’s night

Hum a song, sing a melody
Hum a tune that reminds you of summer
Feel the scent of the salty seas

As we’re humming a song, singing a melody
Humming a tune that reminds you of summer
Sing about a lovely summer, summer

Lalala la lalala la…
Lalala lala lalala lala…
La la lalala lala lalala…

Lala lalalala lalala lala…
Lalala lala lalala lala…
Sing about a lovely summer
Lovely day, lovely summer’s day
