Faderittan

När jag städade hittade jag en handskriven lapp från en av mina elever, med stavningsfel och allt.
When I cleared my papers out, I found this rhyme from one of my very young students. I tried to translate into english although I believe you call him Humpty Dumpty.

Faderittan satt på taket
Faderittan trilla ner
Faderittan slog ihjäl sig
Faderittan finns ej mer
Faderittan ska begravas
på söndag klockan 3
I västra kyrkogården
i kungens portmonnä
Men kistan var för liten
och tårna titta ut,
men tårna ska ju klippas
och läggas i en strut.
pungt och slut.

Faderittan sat
on the roof
Faderittan
fell like a goof
Faderittan
was killed for sure
Faderittan
is no more
Faderittan will be buried
on Sunday three o´clock
In the Western Cemetery
in the royal purse and sock.
But the coffin was too small
his toes were peeking out,
so the toes will be cut
and put in his hat.
stop,
top, toe,
here we go.
