Background information about the song:

The devil took special interest in Beatrice and Violeta. He realizes that they are not like usual people, and he is both fascinated and frightened by the fact that they possess qualities that he himself, until now, has had the monopoly on. He thought he had Beatrice under control, because he was the one who gave her a gentle push into life so that she should take up the hunt for her husband and daughter. He feels that they have a bond of trust where he is the superior. However, she turns out to be hard to steer, so he changes strategy and starts to dance up on Violeta, to reach Beatrice. To her, he appears as a life-affirming charmer who encourages Violeta to live life and seize the opportunities it offers. He caters to her and baits her with lovers in Paradise if she dolls up with braids like the girls in Paris ...

Siste dans

Last Dance

Du må skru på sjarmenYou must turn on your charm
Hopp ned fra vinduskarmenJump down from the windowsill
og dans med meg på din veiand dance with me on your way
Hold deg fast i armen når en djevel danser seintHold onto my arm when a devil dances slowly
og blåser støv av deg og ditt skinn og beinand blows dust off you and your skin and bones
  
Kan eg få by på en siste dansCan I offer one last dance
Før du får hjertestansBefore your heart stops
Med en sommerfugl i magenWith a butterfly in your stomach
Spring å få luft under vingene på dragenRun to get air under the wings of the kite
Kyss en prins og dansKiss a prince and dance
Legg deg i armen hansLie in his arms
La deg forføre av en røverLet yourself be seduced by a robber
Eg har plukket en sekskløverI've picked a six-leaf clover
Eg er enI am one
De andre er femThe others are five
  
Kan eg få sette på deg min blomsterkransCan I put my flower wreath on you
Som eg har plukket når eg gikk hagelangsThat I picked when I walked along the garden
Og med deg i mine tankerAnd with you in my thoughts
Er det presanger som vankerPresents are waiting
Med fletter som jentene i ParisWith braids like the girls in Paris
og kjærester på benkene i Paradisand lovers on the benches in Paradise
Enden er ikkje så langt vekkeThe end isn't so far away
Alle går bak meg i lang rekkeEveryone walks behind me in a long row
Og eg går fremstAnd I'm in the front
Eg går framfor kem som helstI'm in front of anyone
