That was by far the most popular song of the evening with the concert audience (I was there!) Somehow the Serbian dirge won.

I can't understand why the Eurovision Contest has such an odd reputation these days...

Dusty, I understand your assumption but Swedish and Finnish are as close as English and Japanese. Finnish has its origins way to the east in central Asia. Kom hem means Come home, not so difficult!



Nuapurista kuulu se polokan tahti
jalakani pohjii kutkutti.
Ievan äiti se tyttöösä vahti
vaan kyllähän Ieva sen jutkutti,
sillä ei meitä silloin kiellot haittaa
kun myö tanssimme laiasta laitaan.
Salivili hipput tupput tapput
äppyt tipput hilijalleen.

(The sound of the polka drifted over from the neighbours and got our feet tapping. Eva's mother kept an eye on her daughter but Eva found a way to sneek off. After all, you disobey when you feel like dancing...)

Dusty it goes

"Here, here you are all the time
Here, here you are everything"

And continues equally cheesy.

Are you saying dysentery, ringworm and elephantiasis aren't benefits?

You could set that to music in forrun.

I've seen them live (and I have autographs) on this actual tour. They use visual cues and it's amazing.

Still, that is the pot calling the kettle black since I have albums in Welsh.
