"Somliga går med trasiga skor" as written by and Cornelis Vreeswijk....
Somliga går i trasiga skor.
Säj vad beror det på?
Gud fader som i himlen bor,
kanske vill ha det så?

Gud fader som i himlen bor,
blundar och sover sött.
Vem bryr sig om ett par trasiga skor,
när man är gammal och trött?

Vem bryr sig om hur dagarna går?
Dom vandrar som dom vill.
Medborgare, om etthundra år
finns do ej längre till.

Då har nå´n tagit din stol
- det vet do inte av.
do känner varken regn eller sol
ner i din mörka grav.

Vem bryr sig om hur nätterna far?
- Jag bryr mig inte ett spår.
Bara jag får ha mitt ansikte kvar,
dolt i min älsklings hår.

Jag är en tvivelaktig figur
duger ej mycket till.
Bakom ett hörn står döden på lur,
han tar mig när han vill.

Somliga går med trasiga skor,
tills dom har slutat gå.
Djävulen som i helvetet bor
får sig ett gott skratt då.

    General CommentTranslation:

    Some walk with torn shoes
    say why is it so?
    God Father who lives in heaven,
    maybe wants it so

    God Father who lives in heaven,
    closes his eyes and sleeps well.
    Who cares about a pair of torn shoes
    when you are old and tired

    Who cares about how the days go by?
    They go as they please.
    Brother, in one hundred years,
    you'll no longer exist.
    Then somebody else have taken your place,
    you'll know nothing of it.
    You feel neither rain nor sun,
    down in your dark grave.

    Who cares about how the nights go by?
    I dont care a bit.
    As long as I can keep my face
    buried in my love's hair.

    I am a doubtful character,
    not good for much.
    Behind a corner death lurks,
    he takes me whenever he wants.

    Some walk with torn shoes,
    until they walk no more.
    The Devil who lives in hell,
    gets himself a good laugh then...
