Hyvän illan sanon sulle kultani armas
kun tulen taas sua tervehtimään.
Sinisiä silmiä kasvoita kauniita
mun teki mieleni katselemaan.
Sinisiä silmiä kasvoita kauniita
mun teki mieleni katselemaan.

Vaikka minä vaeltasin ympäri maata
asusin jo jäämeren takana.
Kuvasi on kätketty sytämeni alle
toivoni ei pitä lakata.
Kuvasi on kätketty sytämeni alle
toivoni ei pitä lakata.

I'll wish you good evening, my sweet darling,
when I return to greet you again.
I loved to gaze upon your blue eyes
and your face so fair.

Although I have wandered around the country
and dwelt beyond the ice-bound sea,
your picture was locked in my heart:
my hopes must never die.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
