RIDA, RIDA RANKA

Rida, rida ranka
Hästen heter Blanka
Vart skall vi rida
Hem till att fria
Hos en Liten piga
Vad skall hon heta
Anna Maja Greta
Den tjoka ock feta

Nar vi kom dit
Var det ingen hemma
Mei än två små hundar som Stog under bänken
Ock hamla på, hänken ock grala
Woof, woof, woof

Translation:

Rida, rida, ranka
The horse is named Blanka.
Where shall we ride?
Home, to propose
To a small maid.
What’s her name?
Anna Maja Greta,
The plump and fat.

When we got there,
There was no one at home
Only two small dogs that stood under the bench
Growling and howling,
Woof, woof, woof!
