Så har den første snøen falt, men det er ikkje derfor det er kaldt
Det blir ikkje nødvendig å ta på fleire klær
Husk at det er bare et spel

Hey Tony, legg nå ner din mandolin
for det er din tur til å spinne magasinet

Når bakken er frossen og dammen er kald
då kan du kjenna varmen av metall
Og resten av verden vett ingenting
for snøen dempe lyden av et smell

Og når du har tapt kan ingen hjelpa deg
Når du har tapt, då står du for deg sjøl

Me stille ingen krav til din karakter
Det er ikkje stort du trenge å forstå
Her er alle like framfor Monellos revolver
Skjebnen tar aldri parti

    General CommentI only speak Portuguese and English, so I have no idea what's this song is about, but I love it. I have no idea of how many times I've listened to it.

    General CommentI love this song, it's slower than other Kaizers songs, but they still pull it off in a great way. For all of you who don't speak Norwegian, here's a quick (and probably sloppy - it's getting late over here, and I'm half asleep already) and pretty literal translation to English:
    Then the first snow has fallen, but that's not the reason for the cold
    It won't be necessary to put on more clothes
    Remember, it's only a game

    Hey Tony, put down your mandoline
    'cause it's your turn to spin the magasine/barrel

    When the ground is frozen and the pond is cold
    then you can feel the warmth of metal
    and the rest of the world know nothing
    'cause the snow muffles the sound of a bang (from a gun)

    And when you have lost no-one can help you
    When you have lost, then you stand for yourself

    We don't have requirements for your character
    It isn't much you need to understand
    Here everybody's equal in front of Monello's revolver
    Faith never takes sides

    There are a lot of references to other songs on the 'Ompa til du Dør' album, so some parts of it may sound strange when you don't know the context.

    General CommentIt's part of the whole mob-story on the Ompa til du dor-album. In this song they all play russian roulette and Tony dies.

    My OpinionThey're playing Russian roulette in Marcello's basement, Tony (Monsieur Clavier's son) is playing his mandolin, it's his turn to spin the cylinder, and dies.
    (basically what suburban said I just added some things)
