Icelandic
(Sjúbí-dúbí-dú)

Louis hann söng margt sjúbídú
Sarah og Ella með
Frankie hann söng “New York, New York”
Og sjúbídú, sjúbídú

Heyrðir þú Sammy sjúbídú?
Söng ekki Nat Cole með?
Manst’ eftir Elvis syngja “Love Me Tender”?
Og sjúbídú, sjúbídú

Sjúbídú, sjúbídú
Menn skilja jafnt á Skagaströnd og Tímbúktú
Sjúbídú, sjúbídú
Í öllum heimi einum rómi sjúbídú

Dizzy hann dáði sjúbídú
Dýrðlegan flutti tón
Og Billie Holiday um síðkvöld söng margt
Sjúbídú, sjúbídú

Sjúbídú, sjúbídú
Menn skilja jafnt á Skagaströnd og Tímbúktú
Sjúbídú, sjúbídú
Í öllum heimi einum rómi sjúbídú

Tónanna mál í sérhverri sál
Sungið með hjartans tilfinningu
Sama hvar er, söngurinn fer
Svífandi á væng’ um geim

(Sjúbídú, sjúbídú) Sjúbí-dúbí
Menn skilja jafnt á Skagaströnd og Tímbúktú
Sjúbídú, sjúbídú

(Sjúbí-dúbí-dú) Sjúbí-dúbí-dú

Translation
(Shoobe-doobe doo)

Louis he sang alot shoobe-doo
Sarah and Ella too
Frankie he sang “New York, New York”
And shoobe-doo, shoobe-doo

Did you hear Sammy, shoobe-doo?
Didn’t Nat Cole sing along?
D’you remember Elvis singing “Love Me Tender”?
And shoobe-doo, shoobe-doo

Shoobe-doo, shoobe-doo
People understand it even on Skagaströnd and Timbuktu
Shoobe-doo, shoobe-doo
In the whole world, all together shoobe-doo

Dizzy he adored shoobe-doo
Adorably did few tones
And Billie Holliday on a late night sang much
Shoobe-doo, shoobe-doo

Shoobe-doo, shoobe-doo
People understand it even on Skagaströnd and Timbuktu
Shoobe-doo, shoobe-doo
In the whole world, all together shoobe-doo

The tones’ language in every soul
Sung with the feeling in our heart
No matter where, the singing will go
Gliding on it’s wings through space

(Shoobe-doo, shoobe-doo) Shoobe-doo
People understand it even from Skagaströnd to Timbuktu
Shoobe-doo, shoobe-doo

(Shoobe-doobe-doo) Shoobe-doobe-doo
