Danish
For din skyld bru’r jeg brusende skørter
For din skyld er jeg pigelig, sart og koket
For din skyld skal jeg hver gang erobres
For din drøm er at tæmme mig, svage og bly
Mens jeg tappert gør modstand

Hver gang skal det være som dengang
Hver gang jeg vil gi’, vil du hellere ta’

Men min drøm er at elske i venskab
Jeg er træt af min kvindelighed
For den bli’r du så bredskuldret af
Jeg syn’s ikke om mænd, der er mænd
Men om mænd, der er menn’sker

For din skyld er det slut med komedien
For din skyld er det tid at ta’ maskerne af
For din skyld gør din elskede oprør
Jeg er ikke dit bytte, men ligemand
Menn’ske, jeg si’r det for din skyld

For ellers glider jeg

Translation
For your sake I wear rustling skirts
For your sake I’m girlish, sensitive and coy
For your sake I have to be conquered every time
For your dream is to tame me, weak and shy
While I bravely resist

Every time, must be like then
Every time I give, you’d rather take

But my dream is to love in friendship
I’m tired of my femininity
For it makes you so broad-shouldered
I don’t care for men, who are men
But for men, who are human

For your sake the comedy’s over
For your sake it’s time to take off the masks
For your sake your lover revolts
I’m not your prey, but peer
Human, I say it for your sake

For otherwise I’ll slide away
