Where You Go I Go With You

Helen Sjöholm, Russell Watson, Claire Tendl, Ensemble

Karl Oskar
Three Years i have waited
For this very moment
Can you guess what i’m about to say?

Kristina
Please don’t keep me waiting

Karl Oskar
The farm is mine, Kristina.
We have a home now, a farm that will
Feed us and clothe us.
We will be married…
that’s, if you’ll still have me

Kristina
You know i’ll have you!
I’ve told you, Karl Oskar.
I think about you only
Go ask my father.
He’ll give us permission.
I know for certain he will.

My man, my husband finally!
I wished for this, all other thoughts forsaking
Now my wish is granted
The dream has come true.
Now where you go I go with you

With all my body and my soul
I crave you each and every breath I’m taking
And I see that eagerness burning in you
Your soul, your heart, your body too

Wedding Guests
She is young but they where
made for one another
They’re happy, that’s easy to see
She will surely be
a proper wife and mother
A Worker she’ll have to be!

He will never ask for help from any quarter
There’s no-one who’s stubborn as he
He’s a farmer’s son and she’s a farmer’s daughter
The know what there life will be

But isn’t she lovely?
Isn’t she lively?
Look at her rushing
To and fro
Still a young girl
Yes, isn’t she lovely?
Look at her smiling
Look at her blushing
Head to toe
Still a young girl

Marta
You where always such a headstrong boy
and you would never listen

Nils 
Since I thaught you that your fly must be
unbuttoned when you’re…

Wedding Guests

A Worker she’ll have to be!

But isn’t she lovely?
Isn’t she lively?
Look at her rushing
To and fro
Still a young girl

Yes, isn’t she lovely?
Look at her smiling
Look at her blushing
Head to toe
Still a young girl

Everybody knows that times are getting harder
There’s hard days ahead for his bride
Won’t be easy putting something in the larder
She’ll need a good man by her side
Who will plough every acre
and turn every stone to provide

Kristina
How I used to beg you
Stay just a little longer with me

Karl Oskar
Having to leave you
was almost unbearable

Kristina 
Every sunday morning

Karl Oskar
Stealing away before dawn
Not to wake up your parents

Kristina 
Then one last kiss…

Karl Oskar
Always time for that kiss

Kristina
Now I’ll hold you forever
Always hold you like this

Kristina & Karl Oskar 
With all my body and my soul
I crave you each and
every breath I’m taking
I am yours from this day
and all our days through
For where you go, I go with you
