Subject: RE: Lyr Req: I am a Fine Musician - German song?
Gosh, I have know this song almost all my life, and always believed it was Swedish! From the very province where I live, to boot!

Vi äro musikanter allt ifrån Skaraborg (twice),
Vi kan spela fio-lio-lio-lej,
vi kan spela basfiol och flöjt.
Och vi kan dansa bomfaderalla, bomfaderalla, bomfaderalla,
vi kan dansa bomfaderalla, bomfaderallan-lej.

(Popular for dancing around the Midsummer pole, among other things.)
