Has anybody got a translation of Sinklars Visa, the Danish ballad about an invading Scottish army getting wiped out by a bunch of Nordic peasants in 1612? ... ng&sid=522

Maybe the Scandiwegians did a 400th anniversary re-enactment?

There are a few garbled translations of a greatly shortened version by a Faroese rock band, but I'm looking for something better.

(Aargh - answered my own question with a bit more googling:

It's a bit too Walter-Scottish for me, though).
