I stumbled on this Finnish song on Youtube, and thought that I must immediately share it with my fellow A.netters  Silly

Jesus, the redhead singer looks like my wife, but not nearly as tone deaf.

Not bad, Manu. I like acapella groups. One question. How did you stumble across it? What on Earth possessed you to find it? LOL

Thanks for sharing this.  Big grin

If you read the comments on Youtube, apparently even some Finns don't understand the words. It must be some dialect.

Maybe a regional local dialect from the north?

I liked the other versions from here...
