Learning Norsk: Sommer Kommer

Earlier this year, the kids learned the first verse to a fun Norwegian song, “Sommer Kommer“.  Since then, the Barnesklubb kids have expressed interest in learning the other verses.  As winter is upon us – though it doesn’t feel that way here in Northern California where it was 81 degrees just two days ago – I thought it was a good time to followup.

Fortunately, I was able to find a video on YouTube so that I could assure our pronunciation was relatively accurate.  As you may know, I am learning Norwegian myself and I didn’t want to lead the kids astray. It’s a fun song and one I know we’ll return to again and again.

Summer

Sommer kommer, sommer kommer
sol og regn og latter og sang
sol og regn og latter ha ha ha
latter sol og sang

Autumn

høsten kommer, høsten kommer
blader og skole og vind og genser
blader og skole og vind who ho ho
vind blader og genser

Spring

stormen kommer, stormen kommer
skyet og regn og torden og lyn
skyet og regn og torden (clap clap clap)
torden skyet og regn

Winter

vinter kommer, vinter kommer
is og snø og kakao og kaldt
is og snø og kakao brrr brrr brrr
kakao is og kaldt
