Mie tahon tanssia – Aitara, 1994

Translation by Jevgenija Sorokina

(Värttinä — “Mie tahon tanssia”)

1: Oh, tonight I feel I’m in the mood to dance,
In the mood to dance, my friends, the night away,
Oh, where the boys have gone to fetch the girls,
Where they’ve gone to take the girls away?
Oh, tonight I feel I’m in the mood to dance,
In the mood to dance, my friends, the night away,
Oh, where the boys have gone to fetch the maids,
Where they’ve gone to take the maids away?
Oh, tonight I feel I’m in the mood to dance,
In the mood to dance, my friends, the night away,
But for us there are no partners light of foot
Partners just to take dancers away.
Chorus: Fetchers, where are you,
Where are fetchers for the maids?
Fetchers, where are you,
Where are fetchers for the gals?
2: Oh, tonight I feel I’m in the mood to dance,
In the mood to dance, my friends, the night away,
Is there not a single guy who’d ask
For the heart of one of our maids?
Oh, tonight I feel I’m in the mood to dance,
In the mood to dance, my friends, the night away,
Is there not a single guy who’d ask
For a wedding trip from one of our maids?
Oh, tonight I feel I’m in the mood to dance,
In the mood to dance, my friends, the night away,
Does our village not have a single man
Just to marry one of our maids?
repeat chorus
