Love it: Finnish rappers who are 4 years old




If this doesn't make you smile you are most likely a robot / born without lips. I'm talking about Ella ja Aleksi, a duo of Finnish children who rap about living on a train.
Here's the video. Watch it first, then, if you want the translation, it's below:

Yöjuna Rovaniemelle

by Ella ja Aleksi

The beds are made for us
This night train is heading towards Lapland
Lower bed to you, the upper bed for me
Now is time for 'elfing' around
take out the toys, papers and markers
The train is better than cars and busses
here you can play, let's make a cottage
Even dad smiles when he is not driving
(even dad smiles when he is not driving)

Chorus:
So let's head towards Rovaniemi ( This is nighttrain 865
there's a circle of elves of us out here
Keep good care of us conductor
(2x)

Could it be possible to move into a train
our home would keep moving all the time
the conductor would protect our dreams
a new locality every morning
We found jars that say
'This is Helsinki's tapwater' ( when you push the pedal in the toilet
soon you can see your pee in the rails
(soon you can see your pee in the rails)

Chorus:
So let's head towards Rovaniemi ( This is nighttrain 865
there's a circle of elves of us out here
Keep good care of us conductor
(4x)

This blog seems to lack new posts. I might riot.

The funny part about this is NOW. You see, the "word" that I will be using to verify that I am not a robot is "samis." Jon, your mission is to find out why that would be funny in a video about Finnish kids going north to Lapland.

OK, the video was also fun. :-)
