Kuunkuiskaajat (English)

5. Hääkellot (Wedding bells)

There is ice at the lake, and ice under the snow.
There are two friends, the frost and cold.
There are a frozen country and starry sky.
I don’t get it in my mind, I remember it.
Oh when the wedding bells will ring for us.
Oh when the wedding bells will ring for us.

When already the tree leafs and winter is quiet.
When is July and there is corn in the country.
Oh then the wedding bells will ring for us.
Oh then the wedding bells will ring to us.

Then the sky and country will dance.
You look to my white veil.
When the country blooms and the rye bird sings.
Oh then the wedding clocks will ring to us.

Then the sky and country will dance.
You look to my white veil.
When already the tree leafs and winter is quiet.
When is July and there is corn in the country.
Oh then the wedding bells will ring for us.
Oh then the wedding bells will ring for us.

6. Työlki ellää (Working Is A Way To Make A Living)

What do I sing when I’m happy
What do I put on top of floating notes
Lots of sunshine and white clouds
Laughing eyes for market traders

I sing
daylight, shine, full Moon, travel safely
Working is a way to make a living, but you get rich by trading

I sing
daylight, shine, full Moon, travel safely
Working is a way to make a living, but you get rich by trading

What do I sing when I am unhappy
What do my notes have to bear
Rain and stormy weather over the city
I´ll give a penny for the pelimanni with tattered trousers

I sing
daylight, shine, full Moon, travel safely
Working is a way to make a living, but you get rich by trading

I sing
daylight, shine, full Moon, travel safely
Working is a way to make a living, but you get rich by trading

What do I sing when I’m in love
Shall my love carry the song to the Moon
Just velvet, silk and golden thread
for my darling’s shirt

I sing
daylight, shine, full Moon, travel safely
Working is a way to make a living, but you get rich by trading

I sing
daylight, shine, full Moon, travel safely
Working is a way to make a living, but you get rich by trading

What do I sing when I’m alone
I wonder why do I keep writing new songs
Two strange birds on the horizon
Flying when it’s time to stop singing

I sing
daylight, shine, full Moon, travel safely
Working is a way to make a living, but you get rich by trading

I sing
daylight, shine, full Moon, travel safely
Working is a way to make a living, but you get rich by trading

I sing
daylight, shine, full Moon, travel safely
Working is a way to make a living, but you get rich by trading

7. Maailman majoilla (In a strange land)

In a strange land, far away,
love songs they sing yearning, yearning
I see the autumn city dress in
pearls of lights, yearning, yearning

Where am I going, where, where am I going,
there, I am going where the wind is taking me.

The black night with its veil covers the beautiful land,
the quiet wind sings yearning, yearning

Where am I going, where, where am I going,
there, I am going where the wind is taking me.

Where am I going, where, where am I going,
there, I am going where the wind is taking me.

In a strange land, far away,
love songs they sing yearning, yearning
