New Times

New thoughts
new times
we have to push on
we have to change
- we see gnomes no more
those subterraneans
’cause we believe in them no more
and so they disappear

We still hear the yoik
we still hear the herd
how much longer
before they disappear
- we fish with nets
and rods and lures
how much longer
someone holds back

If we lose our faith
our visions have power no more
if our memory fails us
we exist no more

New thoughts
new times
we have to push on
we have to change
- with others talking
seeing for us
how do we manage
to tend our environment

New thoughts
new times
we have to push on
we have to change
- Fly, my little bird
sing, dear bird
twitter to the world
how our life is
If we lose our faith
our visions have power no more
if our memory fails us
we exist no more

Heargevuoddji
comp. & lyrics Ulla Pirttijärvi, Hildá Länsman, arr. Samuli Laiho

Borgebeaska badjelis
čiehgahpir nu čeavlájit
márkanbáikái dollestii
vuoján nu go njolggiidii
Heargeráidduin jođášit
siiddastallat, guođohit
fierttuid, borggaid, buollašiid
iđitguksos eahkedii
Njáideluosttat dolvviida
geres dat jo njuvgá fal
čađa vumiid duoddariid
Hearvaheargi njolggiidii
Márkanbáikái skirvehii
olbmuid lusa buvttehii
láidii hearggi guohtumii
dalle vel jo juoiggastii

Reindeer driver

Wearing a posh fur coat
a proud four-corner cap
he drove off to the fair
with his reindeer trotting
We travel with reindeer caravans
tend our herds, graze them
in good weather, snowstorms, frosts
from dawn to dusk
The reindeer strides
and the sled flies
across lowlands, highlands
the adorned reindeer trots along
He swung to the market place
made it to the people there
led his reindeer on pasture
and threw in a Saami yoik.

Ealloravddas
comp. & lyrics Ulla Pirttijärvi, Hildá Länsman, arr. Samuli Laiho

Luonddus vieččan nisttiid
goađi ceggen marrasii
Ealloravddas eallit
meahcis čuoigat duoddarii

Máttaráhkuid vuoiŋŋaid
gudnejahttit giitit
Dološ áiggiid čađa
min láiden eallin álgui

Bálvalehkos sieiddi
addos dasa oaffar
Bassivuoiŋŋa gudnin
Áilegasa čohkas

By the Reindeer Herd

I get my provisions from the nature
I put up my cone-shaped tent on a birchwood ridge
To live by the herd
To ski from the woods to the hills

We honor and thank
The spirits of the ancient grandmothers
Through ancient times
they have guided us to the beginning of life

Let the sacred stone be worshiped
let it have its sacrifice
to honor the holy spirit
on the top of the Áilegas hill.

Muhtumin
comp. & lyrics Hildá Länsman, arr. Samuli Laiho

Mus lea nana dovdu du birra
dan mun dovddastan inge heahpan
kánske lean visot das govahallan
ieš in oainne mii lea šat duohta

Jáhkátgo don daidda nieguide
mat báidnašuvvet min mielaide
dovden du leat doppe mielde
moai vel muhtumin deaivvadetne

Čana mu čalmmiid, oainnán šearradit
ean leat deaivvadan ja dovddan du
ruohtasmuvvan lea dat diehtu
leat munnje eakti ustiban

Letne ollu ovttas vásihan
vaikke in das sáhte muititge
duinna sáhtán juohkit bottoža
hárjánan lean du áibbašit

Some Day

I feel strongly about you
I admit with no embarrassment
I might have dreamt all of it up
I don’t know what’s true anymore

Do you believe in these dreams
which imprint themselves in our minds
I felt your presence in those dreams
we’ll come together some day

Tie my eyes and I see clearly
We haven’t met and I know you
this I know deep in my heart
you are my genuine friend

We have lived through many things together
even if I cannot remember it
I can share this moment with you
I’m used to miss you.

Beaivi, áhčči
comp. & lyrics Ulla Pirttijärvi, arr. Samuli Laiho

Gavccun alimus Áilegassii
Vuorddašan ráhkkásan beaiveáhči
Nu son fas ihttá liegga suotnjariiguin
Buorresta, muođuidan cummesta

Gieđaidan lebben du sallut fas
Beaivi áhčči giittán du dás
Varragáhkuid oaffarušan
Du gudnin cahkkehan dola dál

Birra dola dánsestan
Illu mielain dál juoiggadan
Áilegas čuovgá, muohta šillá
Beaivi áhčči du bálvalan

Sun Father

I climb to the top of the Áilegas hill
To wait for my love, the sun father
There he comes again with his warm rays
caressing, kissing my face

I spread my arms to embrace you once more
Sun father I thank you right here
Blood cakes are my sacrifice
I light a fire to honor you

I dance around the fire
hum yoiks, our Saami songs
Shiny Áilegas, glimmering snow
Sun father I worship you

Irgeávnnas
comp. & lyrics Ulla Pirttijärvi, Hildá Länsman, arr. Samuli Laiho

Ránnjá gili bárdni
Nu bivššut ja arvvot
Ii láve joavdelastit
Son buorre irgeávnnas

Nubbi gili bojá
Nu fihtolaš ja láđis
Ii leat menddo čeavlái
Su gal viššá geahččat

Doares beale lunta
Nu háhppil ja vitmat
Ii leat beare heittot
Su gal sáhttit dápmat

Ránnjá dálu gánda
Baháneahkkánis diŋga
Heahteráđđin váldá
Jus ii eará fitne

Boyfriend-to-be

The boy from the next village
So stately and so brisk
Doesn’t bum around
A tremendous boyfriend-to-be

The guy in the other village
So witty and so gentle
Isn’t too self-important
A delight to the eye

The youth on the outskirts
So nimble and so clever
He is not too bad
We sure can tame him

The brat next door
An unmanageable creature
To serve as a stopgap
If you get no one else

Eanan čiega mu
comp. & lyrics Ulla Pirttijärvi, arr. Samuli Laiho

Eanan, čiega mu várregurrii, jeakki ravdii, buvrri sisa
Eanan, čiŋat mu girjjat šattuiguin, váldde mu luonddu biigán

Eanan, čiega mu báktehollui, luonddu sallii, čeargga sisa
Eanan, váldde mu iežat nieidan, vai čáráhus ii fáhte, goarit guoržžu

Earth, Hide Me

Earth, hide me at the foot of a mountain, on the skirts of a marsh, in a peat hut
Earth, adorn me with bright plants, take me as nature’s maid

Earth, hide me in a cave, nature’s bosom, in a snowdrift
Earth, take me as your daughter

Davvebiekkat
comp. & lyrics Ulla Pirttijärvi, Hildá Länsman, arr. Samuli Laiho

Luonddus johtti vadjola
vilda miella nu girddaša
Suoji ozada ja hurada
ii suorgan vaikko eanan de dorggiida

Ii leat dilli vuollánit
Rohttu viggá fallehit
Áiccuid ferte guldalit
Diktit davvebiekkaid váikkuhit

Luonddu mearkkaid dulkoda
mohkkás bálgáid guorada
Biegga sutnje juoiggada
luovvaneami jiella bosoda

Ii leat dilli vuollánit
Rohttu viggá fallehit
Áiccuid ferte guldalit
Diktit davvebiekkaid váikkuhit

Dearpala cuovkkas láhkkiid
Luvve máilmme čatnosiid

North Winds

The traveler roams the wild
his unruly mind flies restlessly
seeking shelter and humming
he takes no fright at the quaking earth

There’s no time for resignation
The demons are about to get you
You have to listen to your senses
and let the north winds sway you

He studies the signs of nature
follows the winding paths
listens to the wind’s song
to a breeze signaling departure

There’s no time to resign
The demons are about to get you
You have to listen to your senses
and let the north winds sway you

He shatters the chains
Unwinds the world’s bonds

Suoivaniid eatnamii
comp. & lyrics Ulla Pirttijärvi, Hildá Länsman, arr. Samuli Laiho

Go giđđa boahtá mun fas morihan
Lean dego guovža beasis boltasan
Nu guhkás skábma bisttii
menddo guhká orui jo
Suoivvanin johten mánnu skihpárin

Suoivvanin johten suoivaniid eatnamiin
Skápma silba litna skálvviin gálašin
Suoivvanin johten suoivaniid eatnamiin
Násttit čuvgejit guovssahasat libardit

Lea sevdnjes buolašáigi meattá fal
De oaččun eallinfámuid máhccat dal
Menddo guhká johten niegus
menddo guhká orui gal
Suoivvanin johten buolaš gorudis

Suoivvanin johten suoivaniid eatnamiin
Skábma silba litna skálvviin gálašin
Suoivvanin johten suoivaniid eatnamiin
Násttit čuvgejit guovssahasat libardit

To the land of shadows

When spring comes I wake up again
Like a bear coming out of the den
The darkness lasted so long
too long if you ask me
As a shadow I travelled with the moon

As a shadow I travelled in the land of shadows
I waded in the soft silvery snowdrifts of the darkness
As a shadow I travelled in the land of shadows
The stars gleam the northern lights flicker

The frosty polar night is over now
I’ll get my vital force back again
Too long I travelled in a dream
too long if you ask me
As as shadow I travelled with frost in my body

As a shadow I travelled in the land of shadows
I waded in the soft silvery snowdrifts of the darkness
As a shadow I travelled in the land of shadows
the stars gleam, the northern lights flicker

New thoughts
new times
we have to push on
we have to change
- we see gnomes no more

'cause we believe in them no more
and so they disappear


We still hear the yoik
we still hear the herd
how much longer
before they disappear
- we fish with nets
and rods and lures
how much longer
someone holds back


If we lose our faith
our visions have power no more
if our memory fails us
we exist no more
