Danish
Kender du mon typen der ved alt med sikkerhed
Og som godt ka’ li’ at trampe på dig når du ligger ned?
Han fløjter, hvis det viser sig at fejlen, den er din
Så si’r han hover’nde, og brandirriter’nde med sit fjollede grin:

Ka’ du se hva’ jeg sa’? Gi’r du mig ret eller hva’?
Og hvem var så klogest af os to?
Ka’ du se hva’ jeg sa’? Måske du hel’re sku’ ta’
At høre lidt på mig, vil jeg påstå

Det’ ikk’ fordi jeg ka’ li’ at gi’ mig
Den ros, jeg syn’s, jeg fortjener
Men ka’ du se hva’ jeg sa’? Jeg tror i hvert fald
Jeg gav dig ret hvis bar’ du var mig

Jeg ska’ nok la’ vær’, at nævne navnene på no’en men du ved vel nok
Jeg tænker på en helt bestemt person det’ en du kender tem’lig godt
Og med en smule held så må du ku’ gæt’ det
Og er det den rette tå ka’ du si’ til dig selv:

Ka’ du se hva’ jeg sa’? Gi’r du mig ret eller hva’?
Og hvem var så klogest af os to?
Ka’ du se hva’ jeg sa’? Måske du hel’re sku’ ta’
At høre lidt på mig, vil jeg påstå

Det’ ikk’ fordi jeg ka’ li’ at gi’ mig
Den ros, jeg syn’s, jeg fortjener
Men ka’ du se hva’ jeg sa’? Jeg tror i hvert fald
Jeg gav dig ret hvis bar’ du var mig

Du går som i trance og får du din chance
Så ved jeg med garanti
At jeg bli’r den lille , for så vil du drille mig og si’
(Vil du drille og drille), så vil jeg si’:

Ka’ du se hva’ jeg sa’? Gi’r du mig ret eller hva’?
Og hvem var så klogest af os to?
Ka’ du se hva’ jeg sa’? Måske du hel’re sku’ ta’
At høre lidt på mig, vil jeg påstå

Det’ ikk’ fordi jeg ka’ li’ at gi’ mig
Den ros, jeg syn’s, jeg fortjener
Men ka’ du se hva’ jeg sa’? Jeg tror i hvert fald
Jeg gav dig ret hvis bar’ du var mig

Translation
Do you know the kind of person who knows everything for certain
And who likes trampling on you when you lie down?
He whistles if it turns out that you’re at fault
Then he says gloatingly, and infuriatingly with his silly little laugh:

Don’t you see, that’s what I told you? Do you agree or what?
And who’s the smartest of us?
Don’t you see, that’s what I told you? Maybe you’d better
Listen a little to me, I’d claim

It’s not because I like to give in
I think I deserve that credit
But don’t you see, that’s what I told you? I definitely think
I’d agree with you if only you were me

I won’t name anybody by their name but you do know
I thinking of one particular person, it’s someone you know fairly well
And with a bit of luck you should be able to guess it
And if it’s the right one then you can say yourself:

Don’t you see, that’s what I told you? Do you agree or what?
And who’s the smartest of us?
Don’t you see, that’s what I told you? Maybe you’d better
Listen a little to me, I’d claim

It’s not because I like to give in
I think I deserve that credit
But don’t you see, that’s what I told you? I definitely think
I’d agree with you if only you were me

You walk around as in a trance and if you get your chance
Then I know for sure
That I’ll be the target, because you’ll tease me and say
(You’ll tease and tease), then I’ll say:

Don’t you see, that’s what I told you? Do you agree or what?
And who’s the smartest of us?
Don’t you see, that’s what I told you? Maybe you’d better
Listen a little to me, I’d claim

It’s not because I like to give in
I think I deserve that credit
But don’t you see, that’s what I told you? I definitely think
I’d agree with you if only you were me
