Fred Farne’s Fittja Five

I sailed across the great North Sea from the Isles of Farne
My boat was full of fruit from Fred Farne’s fresh fruit farm on Farne
I thought my fruit would sell well in the town Norway they call Hell
My story I must tell HIS STORY HE MUST TELL
I sailed from Farne to Hell and back again as well
From Farne to Hell and Hell to Farne my story I shall tell

That in Hell fruit could be on sale from Farne to Hell his boat he sailed
From Farne to Hell and Hell to Farne his boat of fruit he sailed

I met 4 men from Sweden they were Mad's Svein Bengt and Odd
From Gavle oer to Hell they drove a wagon full of Cod
The Gavle Cod was good so I bought all the Gavle Cod I could and it I sailed to Farne THE FISH IT HE SAILED TO FARNE
Fresh fruit from Farne to Hell and Gavle Cod to Farne from Hell I sailed
Many boats of Gavle Cod and Farne fruit I did sell.

Fresh fruit from Farne to Hell and Gavle Cod to Farne across the sea
Fresh fruit from Fred Farne’s fresh fruit farm and Gavle Cod sold he

Twas in Ski that I met Randi and in love we truly fell.
with me she traveled Ski to Gavle, Fittja, Farne and Hell
and soon we had a family and after where they were conceived
we named each blessed child THEY NAMED EACH BLESSED CHILD
With Fittja, Farne, Hell, Gavle and Ski to Gavle, Farne and Hell go we
From Ski to Farne, Hell, Gavle, Fittja and beyond go we.

With Fittja, Farne, Hell, Gavle and Ski to Gavle, Farne and Hell go they
From Ski to Farne, Hell, Gavle, Fittja and beyond go they

One day Randi said she could not face it anymore
What is it you can’t face my dear Randi my amor

Traveling Ski to Gavle, Farne with all our children is too hard
A home is what we need A HOME IS WHAT THEY NEED
No more to travel Ski to Gavle, Farne for it is far too hard
So I decided I must find a perfect remedy

No more to travel Ski to Gavle, Farne for it is far too hard
He decided he must find the perfect remedy

One day we were in Stockholm and the Northern wind was bitter
We found for sale upon a little land a little hytte
This shall be our home said Randi for the schools and shops it’s handy
What else could I do? WHAT ELSE COULD HE DO?

To the Fittja Bank I ran and bought the Fittja hytte so now Randi, Farne, Hell, Fittja, Gavle and I have our sweet home

To the Fittja Bank he ran and bought the Fittja hytte so now Randi, Farne, Hell, Fittja, Gavle and he have their sweet home
