Caught up, way up

Well, I felt like a break from physics, and started leafing through old scripts and so stumbled upon this text from last New year's show. Thought what the hell, people had fun there, maybe it can amuse someone more so I translated it. It doesn't work perfectly with the song, but with a bit of cheating and the odd long note wailing it's singable.

The background of the lyrics is the fact that we built the show on what happened in the neighbourhood during 2008, and believe me, with a theme like that in southern Sweden you cannot let the merry little gusts of wind we've been having slip through unnoticed.

I'm not telling what song I'm parodising just yet; any Swede would see it at the chorus but I'm curious to see if anyone here can pick it up.

----------------

Did you thought is was over now?
That excitement had run out
Time to slow right down
Oh, what you must realize
Where thereís a chance for laugh
Thatís the peg for our hat
Feel the pull from a wild and raging ocean
Iím in the middle of a living hurricane!

Iím caught up in a storm wind
Trapped in it
Nothing here can hinder it
When itís blowing through our lands
Iím caught up in a storm wind
Night and day
Here is only it and we
And the light the sky has now turned off

It is time to get prepared
Houses that have gone
Will never come back to us
Feel that windy drag
I scrabble at the door
Wonder if I have the time?
With great longing leave I my pleasant home
Free in a way but still bound, high over my neighbours roof

Iím caught up in a storm wind
Trapped in it
Nothing here can hinder it
When itís blowing through our lands
Iím caught up in a storm wind
Night and day
Here is only it and we
And the light the sky has now turned off

We go, together
Through debris and fallen trees
It is, something strange
When you recall
Forest where thereís a skyline!

Is it the Swedish version of the Wizard of Oz? It sounds like we're not in Kansas anymore, Toto.

That's not a bad translation really. I don't know if I'd have caught humor in it without you mentioning it, but I can hear it that way now. Thinking of this might ease my mind when we have the harsh winds and I'm worrying about the trees and barn coming down.

Well since I'm here I might as well post the song being parodised. Man, that key damn nearly killed my vocal chords at the last chorus, but I'm definetly keeping it in the repetoire. The wig still hangs in the wardrobe...

Nothing like pep and disaster to make a tune.
