Favorite Danish Children's Song

by Paula Mundt

Hello.

I don't know if you'll be able to help me with this. I really hope you can. My Danish Dad and Mum just passed away, and I was never able to get the spelling nor the real Danish lyrics of a song that we used to always sing to my mother after we had eaten a wonderful meal she'd prepared.

Phonetically it always began, (and please don't laugh at my pitiful attempt here!)"Hun ska leiva, Hun ska leiva, Hun ska leiva hike Hurrah! Hurrah, Hurrah, ...". Do you know this song? Please let me know if you do; or perhaps you might know someone else who could help me. We want to sing it at their funeral.

Sincerely your... Paula Mundt

Hun Skal Leve - Danish Celebration Song
by: Charlie

Paula,

This is a typical Danish song, but it is usually sung at birthdays and anniversaries. It is entitled "Hun Skal Leve" It goes like this.

Hun skal leve,
Hun skal leve,
Hun skal leve højt hurra
Hurra, hurra, den skål den var bra,
Hurra hurra den skål den var bra,
Hun skal leve,
Hun skal leve,
Hun skal leve højt hurra.

Which loosely translates as:

She shall live, She shall live, She shall live Loud Hurrah
Hurrah, hurrah, that cheer /toast was good.

Does not translate that well but that is the gist. It is sung at many celebrations and would be a fitting song to sing to celebrate your parents lives. My condolences on your loss.

Charlie
