Music: M. Kaasinen, lyrics: T. Kiiskinen,
English lyrics by J. Sorokina

“SEPÄN POIKA/THE BLACKSMITH’S SON”

I: Would he come along in his black boat, by fair wind guided,
Would he see his fair new damsel in her home?
Would he sail on silently, to the shore a-gliding,
Would he see his fair new damsel in her home?
Would he come along in his black boat, by fair wind guided,
Would he see his fair new damsel in her home?
Would he carry silken sheets into his sweetheart’s bedroom,
Would he meet his fair new damsel in her home?
Would he sail on silently, to the shore a-gliding,
Would he see his fair new damsel in her home?
Bridge: Such a bother it was for the village crones,
‘Cause they didn’t know what was going on.
Yes they couldn’t even sleep a wink that night,
They wanted to know what was going on.
Chorus: “Now, what the hell is this” – the scandal-mongers shriek,
“Now, what the hell is this? Ajajajajaj”
“Now, what the hell is this” – the scandal-mongers shriek,
“Now, what the hell is this? Ajajajajaj”
II: Would the blacksmith’s son have pockets of bright gold a-shining,
To capture his fair new damsel in her home?
Would he come along in his black boat, by fair wind guided,
Would he see his fair new damsel in her home?
Bridge: Such a bother it was for the village crones,
‘Cause they didn’t know what was going on.
Yes they couldn’t even sleep a wink that night,
They wanted to know what was going on.
Such a bother it was for the village crones,
‘Cause they didn’t know what was going on.
