1.
Light and spring came here again,
after winter darkness
To the body soul and mind
giving strength and gladness
From the recent frozen earth,
small green sprouts are breaking.
And a lot of busy birds
merry tunes are singing.
Lovely springtime sun
Much are passing on
Fast the springtime runs.
Much has to be done
 
If you do not like the springtime weather here,
look around the globe and try to tell me where,
everything can match our little country dear,
this good little Denmark dear.
If you do not like the springtime weather here
look around the globe and try to tell me where
everything can match our little country dear
this good little Denmark.
2.
Making clean and killing weeds
Chemicals can make it
Very effective indeed
Labour cost is saved
We more time for leisure get
Time for recreation
More and more of things we get
And more of pollution
But it will not hurt
Sink just in the earth
We not yet have heard
Something much alert
 
Maybe in the future many years ahead
Other people can from it some problems get
But in our time we are not worried
In our little Denmark dear.
Maybe in the future many years ahead
Other people can from it some problems get
But in our time we are not worried
in our dear old Denmark
3.
Far too many unemployed
other works immensely
extra salary get paid
times can seem so strangely
If an unemployed apply
often get the answer
later you again can try
now there is no work here
tell us now indeed
would you self believe
you are qualified
when you're unemployed
 
if you are approximately twenty five
reference from a lot of years with work can give
and we to your salary get subsidies
maybe here a job we have
if you are approximately twenty five
reference from a lot of years with work can give
and we to your salary get subsidies
maybe we have job here
4.
Police and authority
they must be respected
if not our democracy
shall be quite neglected
The elected parliament
laws and rules are giving
so the population then
safely here are living
Is democracy
riots brutally?
fights against police?
gangsters in the street?
 
Are we in a good and fair democracy?
breaking rules of human rights integrity
if we punish brutal destructivity
In our little Denmark dear.
Are we in a good and fair democracy?
breaking rules of human rights integrity
if we punish brutal destructivity
in our dear old Denmark
