Se texten till "Swedish Smorgasbord" med Petra Mede i Eurovision 2013

När Sverige hade möjlighet att göra en show inför 70 miljoner tittare valde man en galen mellanakt.

Showproducenten Christer Björkman slog på stora trumman inför Eurovision Song Contest 2013 när han skulle berätta om mellanakten i finalen.

– Det är ett av de mest galna, spektakulära och rekvisitafyllda nummer som någonsin har gjorts. Det är väldigt bra, roligt och härligt, sade han.

Se om numret ovan – och läs för första gången texten.

"Swedish Smorgasbord"

Musik: Jan Lundkvist. Text: Edward af Sillén, Daniel Réhn och Matheson Bayley.

Del 1:

I come from a country
that’s hard to find
Somewhere near the icy pole
But though we are freezing
please bear in mind

Sweden’s gonna warm
your soul

Our people are cold
but our elks are hot
A horny horde in ev’ry fjord
Our moose may be loose
but they hit the spot
On our Swedish Smorgasbord

A tour of our nation
is certain to impress
We’ve quite a few
surprises for you
A Swedish chef
and Death playing chess

And a girl with a
dragon tattoo
Papa - Po

By winning this contest
you get the chance
To host a show you
can’t afford
But then sell your country
through song and dance
Here’s our
Swedish smorgasbord

Del 2:

We’re green to our planet
with eco-pride
Recycling is in our hearts
Mamma Mia
Ikea has gone world-wide
Good luck assembling
all the parts

We’re strict and we’re
and seldom vent
Don’t show emotion
never whine
Not easy to please
but we’re quite content
When we get to stand in line

Does anyone know what this
line is for
I’d better stay and find out

Proper and polite and
private is our style
Never ever talk on a train
And if we see a stranger
throw us a smile
He’s either a drunk or insane

Everyday we face it
Fly on up and taste it
Try our
Swedish Smorgasbord

Swedish Smörgåsbord

Del 3:

Beneath the midnight sun
The blondes have all the fun
And if you long for stockings
say “Amen!”

From Vikings we descended
It´s frightning what
those men did

But see how we’ve evolved
since then

Our roles are reversing
Our daddies are nursing
In all of our cities
Though men don’t have titties
They can still stay at home
to raise the kids

And our girls can handle
their balls
With the best kickline
of them all

You may now
kiss the groom

Follow our example
Come and try a sample
Of our
Swedish Smorgasbord!

Del 4:

It’s time for some dinner 
we pray you’ll stay
Come and try our
fav’rite course
We eat all our meatballs
the Nordic way:
Seasoned with a hint
of horse

For Strindberg
And Bergman
And Celsius
All rise
For Thor and
Björn Borg
And the great
Nobel Prize

There’s Volvo
And Garbo
The best lingonberry
And all of our problems
Digesting our dairy...

Oh look it´s Carola

Haha  -  yeah
Capture by a love storm

We gave you Carola
and Waterloo
And Diggi-Loo
who all adored

We’ll take you to heaven
Euphoria too

Come and join our party
Come on up and chill
There’s room for everybody
Gravad lax and dill

On our
With H&M ’n’
Ace of Base

Our hurdy-gurdy
