Og jeg vil ha mig en Hjertenskjær

Language: Norwegian (Bokmål)

Og jeg vil ha mig en Silkevest,
ja, ja en Silkevest.
Og jeg vil ha mig en snehvid Hest,
prustende snehvid Hest.

Og jeg vil ha mig en Stigebøil,
ja, ja en Stigebøil.
Og jeg vil ha mig en Bluse af Fløil,
[sølvknappet]1 Bluse af Fløil.

En Heirefjær vil jeg ha i min Hat,
ja, ja i min røde Hat.
Og det skal være en Jonsok-nat,
Gud, for en Jonsok-nat!

Og jeg vil ha mig en Hjertenskær,
ja, ja en Hjertenskjær.
Så svinger jeg Hatten med Heirefjær,
i Sadlen jeg løfter den Jomfru skjær,
og frem over dugvåde Marker det bær
den dejlige Jonsok-nat!
