Swedish.png Swedish text

Vem kan segla förutan vind? Vem kan ro utan åror?
Vem kan skiljas från vännen sin utan att fälla tårar?
(Vem kan segla? Vem kan ro? Vem kan skiljas utan tårar?

Jag kan segla förutan vind, jag kan ro utan åror,
men ej skiljas från vännen min utan att fälla tårar.
(Jag kan segla, jag kan ro. Men ej skiljas utan tårar.

Who can sail without wind? Who can row without oars?
Who can part from his friend without shedding tears?
(Who can sail? Who can row? Who can part without tears?)

I can sail without wind, I can row without oars,
but I cannot part from my friend Without shedding tears.
(I can sail, I can row. But I cannot part without tears.)
