The Cold Swedish Winter

This song is by Jens Lekman and appears on the album When I Said I Wanted to Be Your Dog (2004).

I met her in a snowstorm, I was outdoors plowing
She just walked up to me and said "Hey boy how's it going?"
I admired her straightforwardness and brushed away my fringe
As a signal of well being and excepting her challenge

We went home to her place and cooked up some chili
It warmed us from the inside 'cause the outside was chilly, we
Had to be quiet to not wake up her family
But I made a high-pitch sound when her cold fingers touched me, she said:

"Shh, please be quiet. I know you don't want to but please deny it."
She said:
"Shh, please be quiet. I know you don't want to but please deny it."

When people think of Sweden I think they have the wrong idea
Like Cliff Richards, who thought it was just porn and gonorrhea
And Lou Reed said in the film Blue in the Face
That compared to New York City, Sweden was a scary place
They seem to have a point after meeting with this girl
Maybe not Cliff Richards but Lou had surely met her
The doubt in her eyes when I said I wanted to kiss her
For the sake of liking her not because of the blizzard, she said:

"Shh, please be quiet. I know you don't want to but please deny it."
She said:
"Shh, please be quiet. I know you don't want me but please deny it."

'Cause the cold Swedish winter is right outside
And I just want somebody to hold me through the night
The cold Swedish winter is right outside
And I just want somebody to hold me through the night

In 2000 years this place will be covered by ice
And the people who dig us up will be in for a big surprise
After carefully studying our calcium nourished bones
They'll find enclosed, our hearts of stone, singing that

The cold Swedish winter is right outside
And I just want somebody to hold me through the night
The cold Swedish winter is right outside
And I just want somebody to hold me through the night
