Icelandic
Ég dái Debussy
Ég dýrka Tjækovský
Og Einar Ben og Beethoven
Og Gunnar Thoroddsen

Ég tilbið Harold Lloyd
Ég tilbið Sigmund Freud
Og John Wayne og Mark Twain
Og þig og Michael Caine

Syngjum öllum Sókrates
Sálarinnar Herkúles
Um alla þá sem allir þrá
Og allir dýrka og dá

Ég syng um Kólumbus
Og Sólon Islandus
Og Mendelssohn og Paul og John
Og Jón Pál Sigmarsson

Syngjum öllum Sókrate
Sálarinnar Herkúles
Um alla þá sem allir þrá
Og allir dýrka og dá

Hej, syngjum öllum Sókrates
Sálarinnar Herkúles
Um þá sem spá en einkum þá
Sem fallnir eru frá

Lala lala lalala…
Lala lala lalala…
Lala lala… lala lala…
Lalala lala la…

Dýrka og dá

Translation
I admire Debussy
I worship Tschaikovsky
And Einar Ben and Beethoven
And Gunnar Thoroddsen

I worship Harold Lloyd
I worship Sigmund Freud
And John Wayne and Mark Twain
And you and Michael Caine

Let’s all sing about Socrates
The Hercules of the soul
And about all of those who are desired by all
And who everyone worships and admires

I sing about Columbus
And Solon Islandus
And Mendelssohn and Paul and John
And Jón Páll Sigmarsson

Let’s all sing about Socrates
The Hercules of the soul
And about all of those who are desired by all
And who everyone worships and admires

Hey, let’s all sing about Socrates
The Hercules of the soul
And the prophets but particularly those
Who are no longer here among us

Lalalala lalala…
Lalalala lalala…
Lalalala… lalalala…
Lalala lalala…

Worships and admires
