Världsarvssång

“Björköleden nu vi gå
Jopp hej di, jopp hej da
Världsarvet vi prövar på
Jopp hej di hej da
Vi klättar upp i saltkaret
och ser oss omkring i världsarvet
jopp hej di hej di hej da
åsar här, stenar där
Jopp hej di hej di hej da
vikar, holmar, skär
Titta här, titta där
De geer moräner och flyttblock everywhere
Jopp hej di hej hej da
åsar här, stenar där
Jopp hej di hej da hej da
vikar, holmar, skär.

Björköleden now we walk
Jopp hej di, jopp hej da
About the heritage we talk
Jopp hej di hej da
We’re climbing up in the saltcellar tower
Enjoying our heritage every hour
jopp hej di hej di hej da
Pebbles and rocks, seabirds in flocks
Jopp hej di hej di hej da
Creeks, stones erratic blocks
Please look here, please look there
De geer morains and boulders everywhere
Jopp hej di hej hej da
Pebbles and rocks, seabirds in flocks
Jopp hej di hej da hej da
Creeks, stones, erratic blocks.”
