Cornelis Vreeswijk – Josef Och Maria lyrics

En dag sa skцn Maria
Till Josef, gamla karln:
Gе ut och gцr en vagga
Fцr jag ska ha barn,
Fцr jag ska ha barn.

Men Josef blev fцrgrymmad
Och hдr hцr du hans svar:
Gе ut och be nеn annan,
Fцrsцk med barnets far,
Fцrsцk med barnets far.

Maria blev fцrtvivlad
Fцr Josef sagt ifrеn.
Hon tдnkte gе och drдnka sig,
Men dе fick hon en son,
Ja dе fick hon en son.

Dе ljцd en sеng frеn himmelen,
Sе ljus, sе ren, sе klar.
Och Josef anade sе smеtt
Vem barnets fader var,
Vem barnets fader var.

Sе дr det hдr I vдrlden
Att rдtt ska vara rдtt.
Och Josef slet fцr fru och barn
Uti sitt anlets svett.
Men дngeln som var barnets far
Har ingen jдkel sett.
