I’ve decided it’s time to make a book from all the stories I’ve written about The Swedish Pioneers – stories about my parents and grandparents as they emigrated from Sweden to Minnesota and, eventually, Saskatchewan. But there’s something missing, the words to a Swedish song — and that’s why I need your help.
This will be the second book that I’m publishing from my blog; the first one about Road Trips has been on my coffee table for about a year, and I have at least another two categories that I still want to publish – Golf (since I’ve golfed at so many great golf courses over the years — nearly 200 different ones) and My Life with Doc about the love of my life, Doc O’Shea. Even though I’m 82 now, I think it’s important to have goals. And even if these books are just for my children and few of my relatives who have asked for copies, I want to give them some of my greatest memories. Which is why I need your help.
For this book, I want to include the words to a couple of Swedish songs that my Mamma and Daddy sang to me when I was a child. There were two two songs I could sing in Swedish and I have the words to one, but not to the other. I have been searching and searching and searching. One of my daughters said I should sing it, and maybe people could recognize the song. So I’ve made my first YouTube video.
Help me please. I am pretty sure the last line translates into English as “All my little fine cakes burned up!”
