Fífilbrekka gróin grund
grösug hlíð með berjalautum.
Flóatetur fífusund
fífilbrekka smáragrund
yður hjá ég alla stund
undi best í sæld og þrautum.
Fífilbrekka gróin grund
grösug hlíð með berjalautum.

Dandelions gold and green,
Grassy banks with berries growing;
Meadowsweet the woodland queen,
Fairer flow'rs have never been.
All the sorrow I have seen.
Fades away when the flow'rs are blowing.
Dandelions gold and green,
Grassy banks with berries growing.
