Falconer – Skula, Skorpa, Skalk lyrics

En man han tjдnt herr lagers gеrd
I sommar, vinter еare fцare еare.
Sдg mig, vem sцrjer nu fцare dig?

Fцare slit och slдp under himmel grе
Han blott sitt brцd som lцning fеare.
Sдg mig, vem sцrjer nu fцare dig?

Sе kommer hastigt budet in:
- Vеare herre lдgrar dotra din!
Sдg mig, vem sцrjer nu fцare dig?

Och trдlen genom dцrren steg,
Han lдmna plogen vid еkerns teg.
Sдg mig, vem sцrjer nu fцare dig?

- Herr lager hцare nu mina ord,
Min doter till din hora gjord.
Sдg mig, vem lyssnar nu till dig?

Och lager sa I vredesmod:
- Du vдrnar ej om ditt trдlablod.
Sдg mig, vem lyssnar nu till dig?

Varken цl eller vin dig дmnat,
Ej heller дgorдtt
Dock Skula, Skorpa, Skalk.

Trдl visste ej ett ord utav
Fцrrns strupen hans var skuren av.
Sдg mig, vem skulle vдrna om dig?

- Det hдare дare nog bot fцare idag
Och dotra tar jag vid behag.
Sдg mig, vem skulle vдrna om dig?

- Kom ska jag visa dig min rдtt
Att trцsta dig pе valfritt sдtt.
Sдg mig, vem sцrjer nu fцare dig?

"O tack!" Han sa med grеtmild rцst
Och stцtte kniven uti hans brцst.
- Sдg mig, vem sцrjer nu fцare dig?

    So, does the thrall kill the lord at the end?
    Why is there the line "the thrall did not react, / before his throat was cut." Is the thrall the one being killed? It sounds like it is a song of vengeance, but I'm confused by the translation!

    In any case, it's an excellent song.

    Skula, Skorpa, Skalk: Waste-food, Rusk, Rind

    A man has worked on lord Lager's farm
    for summer and winter, year by year.
    Tell me: who now provides for you?

    For labour and hardship under grey sky
    he merely receives his bread as payment.
    Tell me: who now provides for you?

    So the message swiftly comes:
    "Our lord takes your daughter!"
    Tell me: who now provides for you?

    And the thrall through the doorway stepped,
    he left the plough by the field.
    Tell me: who now provides for you?

    "Lord Lager, now hear my words,
    you have made my daughter your whore,
    Tell me: who now listens to you?"

    And Lager said in anger:
    "You are not careful with your thrall-blood.
    Tell me: who now listens to you?"

    Neither ale nor wine intended for you,
    nor right to own, but waste-food, rusk, rind.
    Neither ale nor wine intended for you,
    nor right to own, but waste-food, rusk, rind.

    The thrall did not react,
    before his throat was cut.
    Tell me: who would care for you?

    "This is enough payment for today
    and the daughter I take when I wish to.
    Tell me: who would care for you?"

    "Come let me show you my right
    to comfort you in any way.
    Tell me: who now provides for you?"

    "Oh thanks!" he said, with tender voice
    and thrust the knife in his chest.
    "Tell me: who now mourns* for you?"

    The Swedish word "sörja", which I have mostly translated as "to provide" can also mean "to mourn", so there is an interesting ambiguity, especially in the last line, where the thrall almost certainly means to ask who the hell would grieve the horrible lord.
