The Dog

Let the wife

make the soup

wash the dishes

make the bed

 

let the husband

shovel the snow

chop the wood

fire the sauna

 

let the kid
sit on the lap

perform the yoik

patiently listen

 

let the elder
go on and on and on

 

but say hello to Fang first

 

Yoik – a traditional Sámi way of singing.

Beana

Vaikke dálu eamit

vuoššá máli
bassá lihtiid
láhčá seaŋgga

 

vaikke dálu isit

hoigá muohttat

čuollá muoraid

ligge sávnni

 

vaikke dálu juŋká

čohkká askkis

lávlu lávlat
máššá gullat

 

vaikke dálu boaran

muittaša muittaša muittaša

 

buoremus diktit vuos Čáhpe sustit
