Leaving for the Land of Christmas (The Song of Savukoski)

Leaving for the land of Christmas / Plan your journey carefully /Try to take with you a compass / And you’ll get there certainly

Sharply turn at Rovaniemi / To your right and then you’ll see / It’s easy to reach Savukoski / Just near where you want to be

From the fell we hear the voices / Singing as they call our name / Every little elf rejoices / With the thought we really came

Northern lights, they will be lit now / Someone comes to turn the switch / We are waiting, wondering how / The surprises will be rich

Here comes waddling Father Christmas / Glowing out with happiness / Arm in arm with Mother Christmas / She’s not smiling any less

Good will greets us everywhere / Have we come to Paradise / Touched by all this until there / Are tiny tears in our eyes
