Swedish Smorgasbord - Best Eurovision Moments

This only happened last year but I LOVED IT! The host for Malmo in Sweden was Petra Mede and she was great craic. Thought she was perfect at it and she was a good change from all the male female duos who try to be funny and fail miserably. Petra was actually funny and then out of NOWHERE she whipped this out and went through every Swedish stereotype she could find! Fair play to ya Petra!

I come from a country
that's hard to find
Somewhere near the icy pole
But though we are freezing
please bear in mind
Sweden's gonna warm
your soul
Our people are cold
but our elks are hot
A horny horde in ev'ry fjord
Our moose may be loose
but they hit the spot
On our Swedish Smorgasbord
A tour of our nation
is certain to impress
We've quite a few
surprises for you
A Swedish chef
and Death playing chess
And a girl with a
dragon tattoo
Papa - Po
By winning this contest
you get the chance
To host a show you
can't afford
But then sell your country
through song and dance
Here's our
Swedish smorgasbord
We're green to our planet
with eco-pride
Recycling is in our hearts
Mamma Mia
Ikea has gone world-wide
Good luck assembling
all the parts
We're strict and we're
structured
and seldom vent
Don't show emotion
never whine
Not easy to please
but we're quite content
When we get to stand in line
Does anyone know what this
line is for
Well...
I'd better stay and find out
Proper and polite and
private is our style
Never ever talk on a train
And if we see a stranger
throw us a smile
He's either a drunk or insane
Everyday we face it
Fly on up and taste it
Try our
Swedish Smorgasbord
Swedish Smörgåsbord
Beneath the midnight sun
The blondes have all the fun
And if you long for stockings
say "Amen!"
From Vikings we descended
It´s frightning what
those men did
But see how we've evolved
since then
Our roles are reversing
Our daddies are nursing
In all of our cities
Though men don't have titties
They can still stay at home
to raise the kids
And our girls can handle
their balls
With the best kickline
of them all
You may now
kiss the groom
Follow our example
Come and try a sample
Of our
Swedish Smorgasbord!
It's time for some dinner
we pray you'll stay
Come and try our
fav'rite course
We eat all our meatballs
the Nordic way:
Seasoned with a hint
of horse
For Strindberg
And Bergman
And Celsius
All rise
For Thor and
Björn Borg
And the great
Nobel Prize
There's Volvo
And Garbo
The best lingonberry
And all of our problems
Digesting our dairy...
Jaa...
Oh look it´s Carola
Haha - yeah
Hohooo
Capture by a love storm
We gave you Carola
and Waterloo
And Diggi-Loo
who all adored
We'll take you to heaven
Euphoria too
Come and join our party
Come on up and chill
There's room for everybody
Gravad lax and dill
On our
Aquavit-crayfish
Yucky-salty-liquorice
Randy-Scandinavian-race
With H&M 'n'
Ace of Base
Our hurdy-gurdy
super-duper
Fab-as-ABBA
Super-Trouper
Swedish
Smorgas
boooooooooooord
