Þhad var i naeturlestinni i Kairo
Þhar sem eg hitti arabadreng
Sem sidan aldrei ur huga mer hverfur
Ég elska hann

Hann sagdi sogur af ulfalda sinum
Og Song um vatnid i vinjum og am
Hann bra upp myndum med tofrandi linum
ég elska hann

Thad var vor og sol
Dagin eftir for
Ég ad hitta hann

Við forum nidr' ad nil
Við þurftum engan bíl
Aðeins úlfaldann

Hann for og syndi mer pyramida
Rett vid jadar Sahara sands
Og aug'ans lystu vid steinana hvita
Ég elska Hann

A nilarbokkum vid gendum og sungum
Um lifsins gledi, fegurd og ast
Ég fylltist anda ur framandi tungum
Ég elska Hann

Thad var vor og sol
Fuglar sungu i kor
Ég ad hitta hann

Vid forum nidr' ad nil
Vvið þurftum engan bíl
Aðeins úlfaldann

Hann kvaddi med med tarvotum augum
A lestarstodinni daginn thann
Er ástin brann svo heitt i minum taugum
Ég vissi eg sæi aldrei aftur hann

Mig dreymir oft um drenginn minn frida
Og tha er lifid ljuft i nalægd hans
Hann hefur stækkad, thvi árin thau lida
Ég elska hann

Her uppa Islandi græt eg i leynum
Og leita' ad merkjum sem minna a hann
Ég se hans andlit i stokkum og steinum
Ég elska Hann

Thad var vor og sol
Dagin eftir for
Ég ad hitta hann

Vid forum nidr' ad nil
Vid purftum engan bil
Adeins Ulfaldann

Hann kvaddi med med tarvotum augum
A lestarstodinni daginn thann
Er ástin brann svo heitt i minum taugum
Ég vissi eg sæi aldrei aftur hann

Mig dreymir oft um drenginn minn frida
Og thá er lifid ljuft i nalægd hans
Hann hefur stækkad, thvi árin thau lida
Ég elska hann

Her uppa Islandi græt eg i leynum
Og leita' ad merkjum sem minna a hann
Ég se hans andlit i stokkum og steinum
Ég elska Hann

Thad var vor og sol
Dagin eftir for
Ed ad hitta hann

Vid forum nidr' ad nil
Vid purftum engan bil
Adeins Ulfaldann

    The Arabian Boy

    It was in the nighttrain in Cairo
    Where I found an arabian boy
    Who since that day never left my thoughts
    I love him

    He told me stories from his past
    And sang of the water in the oasis and rivers
    He drew pictures with magical lines
    I love him

    There was spring and sun
    The next day left
    I to look for him

    We went down the Nile
    We didn't need a car
    Just a dromedary

    He went and showed me the pyramids
    Right by edge of Sahara sands
    And his eyes shone by the white stones
    I love him

    By the bank of the Nile we walked and sang
    About lifes joy, beauty and love
    I´m inspired by other languages
    I love him

    There was spring and sun
    Birds sung in choir
    I look for him

    We went down the Nile
    We didn't need a car
    Just a dromedary

    He left me with tears in his eyes
    On the railway station that day
    When I was burning of love
    I knew I would never see him again

    I often dream of my fair boy
    And life is sweet in his presence
    He has grown, because the years go by
    I love him

    Here back in Iceland i cried in lonliness
    And searched for marks to remind me of him
    I see his face in sticks and stones
    I love him

    There was spring and sun
    The next day went
    I to look for him ...

    We went down the Nile
    We didn't need a car
    Just a dromedary

    He left me with tears in his eyes
    On the railway station that day
    When I was burning of love
    I knew I would never see him again

    I often dream of my fair boy
    And life is sweet in his presence
    He has grown, because the years go by
    I love him

    Here back in Iceland i cried in lonliness
    And searched for marks to remind me of him
    I see his face in sticks and stones
    I love him

    There was spring and sun
    The next day went
    I to look for him ...

    We went down the Nile
    We didn't need a car
    Just a dromedary
