Dala Pig: Små Grisarna

Dala Pig: Små Grisarna
2013

While the dala horse has become a favorite symbol of Sweden, dala pigs are also often carved and painted in the same style. A traditional midsummer song called “Små Grodorna” (“Small Frogs”) has a second verse devoted to little pigs:

Små grisarna, små grisarna är lustiga att se;
Små grisarna, små grisarna är lustiga att se.
Båd öron, båd öron, och svansar hava de;
Båd öron, båd öron, och svansar hava de.

Å nöff nöff nöff, å nöff nöff nöff,
å nöff nöff nöff nöff nöff;
Å nöff nöff nöff, å nöff nöff nöff,
å nöff nöff nöff nöff nöff.
Small pigs, small pigs are funny to see;
Small pigs, small pigs are funny to see.
Both ears, both ears and tails have they;
Both ears, both ears and tails have they. 

Oh snort snort snort, oh snort snort snort,
oh snort snort snort snort snort;
Oh snort snort snort, oh snort snort snort,
oh snort snort snort snort snort.
