Oleanna (Translation from the Norwegian by Pete Seeger) Ole, oleanna, ole, oleanna ole, ole, ole, ole, ole, oleanna Oh to be in Oleanna, that's where I'd like to be Than to be in Norway and bear the chains of slavery Little roasted piggies rush around the city streets Inquiring so politely if a slice of ham you'd like to eat Beer as sweet as muncheners springs from the ground and flows away The cows all like to milk themselves And the hens lay eggs ten times a day The women there do all the work As round the fields they quickly go Each one has a hickory stick And beats herself if she works too slow In Oleanna land is free The wheat and corn just plant themselves Then grow a good four feet a day While on your bed you rest yourself SOF
