The Swede From North Dakota I bane a Swede from Nort' Dakota Work on a farmstead 'bout two yare Tank I go to Minnesota Go to Mi nneapolis to see great fair. Walkin' 'round the stetreet in Saint Paul Ain't seen no feller anywhere So I yump on streetcar to Minneapolis Bet your life lots Swede men there. I buy me a suit, I buy me a bottle Dress me up way out of sight, Yunp on the tail of a Yim Hill wagon Yesus Christ! I feel for fight! I go down to Seven Corners, Where Salvation Army play, One dem vomans come to me This is what dat voman say: She say, "Will you work for Yesus?" I say, "How much Yesus pay?" She say, "Yesus don't pay nothing" I say, "I won't work today." So I go back to North Dakota Get a yob on farm somewhere, And I say to all Swede fellers Dey can go to hell with de big State Fair.
