you and i (and the dog)
(egil olsen)

i wonder if you and i
are gonna stay together
forever you and i
that would be nice

you and i are playing house
the dog’s the baby
i’m the husband you’re the spouse
and somehow maybe
we can get a little ranch
out in the hallway
the flat is our little mansion
you and i for always

if you and i
are gonna stay together
forever you and i
we got to do this right

i can be the bearded husband
just like my daddy
you can stay and clean the house
and do the laundry

on saturdays we’ll go down to
the farmer’s market
sundays we could go to church
to kill away the darkness
you and i
you and i

ooo ooo ooo

remember when you and i
first became together
october you and i
those days were nice

but i got stuck after writing: ej vil ikkje gifte mej,
vikje ha onga, ej vil berre ligge med dej monge gonga.
don't know how to translate it, but it's priceless!
