Finland Finland Finland ♪

Do you know the song called "Finland"?

It's the song used in Monty Python TV programme. While I was in England, on of the English language teachers found this for me.


I've found the song in Youtube. Please listen!



* In the middle, the map of Sweden is erased, but it's a "British humour."(As said in Youtube)



The lyrics are;

Finland, Finland, Finland,
The country where I want to be,
Pony trekking or camping,
Or just watching TV.
Finland, Finland, Finland.
It's the country for me.

You're so near to Russia,
So far from Japan,
Quite a long way from Cairo,
Lots of miles from Vietnam.

Finland, Finland, Finland,
The country where I want to be,
Eating breakfast or dinner,
Or snack lunch in the hall.
Finland, Finland, Finland.
Finland has it all.

You're so sadly neglected
And often ignored,
A poor second to Belgium,
When going abroad.

Finland, Finland, Finland,
The country where I quite want to be,
Your mountains so lofty,
Your treetops so tall.
Finland, Finland, Finland.
Finland has it all.

Finland, Finland, Finland,
The country where I quite want to be,
Your mountains so lofty,
Your treetops so tall.
Finland, Finland, Finland.
Finland has it all.

Finland has it all.



One thing has to be mentioned. Finland doesn't have "lofty mountains." Only in a particular region in Lapland!!

The Brits must have written this as a joke to say " Finland has nothing," but at first, I took it seriously and straight forward that I really thought "Finland has everything"!! hehe^^

Well, there are lots of things that Finland DOESN'T have, but each place has their own way to enjoy, doesn't it?
