Icelandic
London, París, Róm urðu orðin tóm
Gekk þann gyllta breiða, blindaður af ást
Falskir kunningjar, snerust um mig einan
Fékk mér kavíar, núna er allt um seinan

Því ég stíg minn hinsta dans
Og ég kveð mitt líf með glans
En ég iðrast aldrei neins
Iðrast aldrei

Kristals kampavín, perlur postulín
Demantar í matinn, ást í eftirrétt
Ef ég elsk’ í dag, blöðin birta á morgun
Fæ mér freyðibað, drekki mínum sorgum

Og ég stíg minn hinsta dans
Og þannig kveð mitt líf með glans
En samt iðrast ég aldrei neins
Iðrast aldrei

Allt sem ég fæ í dag, farið burt á morgun

Svo ég stíg minn hinsta dans
Og þannig kveð mitt líf með glans
En samt iðrast ég aldrei neins
Iðrast aldrei

Translation
London, Paris, Rome became empty words
I walked the wide and golden road, blinded by love
False acquaintances, revolved around me alone
I had some caviar, it’s all too late now

For I take my final dance
And bid my life farewell in style
Yet I never regret a thing
Never regret

Crystal champagne, pearls, porcelain
Diamonds for dinner, love for dessert
If I love today, it will be in the papers tomorrow
I take a bubblebath, drown my sorrows

And I take my final dance
And that’s how I bid my life farewell in style
Yet I never regret a thing
Never regret

All that I get today, has gone away tomorrow

So I take my final dance
And that’s how I bid my life farewell in style
Yet I never regret a thing
Never regret
