Somliga går med trasiga skor
Cornelis Vreeswijk Lyrics


Somliga går med trasiga skor
säg vad beror det på
gud fader som i himmelen bor
kansken vill ha det så.

Gud fader som i himmelen bor,
blundar och sover sött.
Vem bryr sig om ett par trasiga skor,
när man är gammal och trött

Vem bryr sig om hur dagarna går
de vandrar som dem vill.
Medborgare om etthundra år,
finns du ej längre till.

Då har nån annan tagit din stol
det vet du inte av
du känner varken regn eller sol
ner' i din mörka grav

vem bryr sig om hur nätterna far
jag bryr mig inte ett spår
Bara jag får ha mitt ansikte kvar
Dolt i min älsklings hår.

Jag är en tvivelaktig figur.
Duger ej mycket till.
Bakom ett hörn står döden på lur.
Han tar mig när han vill.

Somliga går med trasiga skor,
tills de har slutat gå.
Djävulen som i helvetet bor
får sig ett gott skratt då.

Proper translation:

"Some people walk in ragged shoes, pray tell why is that?
God our Father who lives in Heaven might want it that way,

God our Father who lives in Heaven rests peacefully asleep,
Who cares about a pair of ragged shoes when one is old and tired?

Who cares how the days go? They wander as they please,
Citizen, in a hundred years you'll be no more,

By then someone else has taken your place, but of that you won't be aware,
You feel neither rain nor sun down in your murky grave,

Who cares how the nights go? I don't care at all,
As long as I can keep my face hidden within my lover's hair,

I am a questionable character, not good for much,
'Round a corner Death stalks, he'll take me when he pleases,

Some people walk in ragged shoes, until they stop walking,
The Devil who lives in Hell has himself a good laugh then."

whistling


You're welcome.

here's an english version i did with proper rhyming:

"some people walk ‘round in ragged shoes
pray tell me, why that is
the holy lord who in heaven snooze,
maybe he wants it like this

the holy lord who in heaven snooze,
sleeps in his heavenly fold
who cares about some ragged old shoes,
when you are tired and old

who cares about how days pass us by
they just fly by as they please
maybe you’ll find at the end of your life
it all just went by like a breeze

by then someone's taken your place
of this you won’t be aware
no ray of sun will touch your sweet face
down in your permanent lair

who cares how nights fly by without trace
i sure as hell don’t care
only long as i can keep my face
in my darling's hair

i might be a real shady guy
a scumbag and a sleaze
but just right near, death stalks on by
he’ll take me whenever he please

some people walk ‘round in ragged shoes
until they can’t walk no more
the devil this will surely amuse
and he'll laugh like never before"

He was born in Holland, he lived in Sweden, he is so melancholic that he should be Finnish. Great song!
