Lyrics (tekst)

Lyrics: Britt Lindeborg
Composer: Torgny Söderberg
Blixtar och dunder, magiska under
Plötsligt en dag har det hänt
Åh, vilken tur (Du är en lyckofigur)

En dag i staden (Du gick där och tänkte)
På esplanaden (Då såg du nåt som blänkte)
Det kändes som jag hade vingar
Åh, vilken underbar dröm

Diggi-loo diggi-ley, alla tittar på mig
Där jag går i mina gyllne skor
Jag dansade omkring på gatan
Och hela världen den log

Diggi-loo diggi-ley, himlen öppnade sig
Det är knappt man sina ögon tror
Åh, jag börjar nästan sväva
I mina gyllene skor

Jag har visioner för millioner
Gyllene dojor för dig och lyckan är gjord
(Säg mer, vi tror på ditt ord)

Tänk dig ett hinder (Det flyger du över)
Vingar på skorna (Är allt vad du behöver)
Åh, jag kan bli vad jag önskar
I min förtrollade värld

Diggi-loo diggi-ley, alla tittar på mig
Där jag går i mina gyllne skor
Jag dansade omkring på gatan
Och hela världen den log

Diggi-loo diggi-ley, himlen öppnade sig
Det är knappt man sina ögon tror
Åh, jag börjar nästan sväva
I mina gyllene skor

Det var en önskedröm men jag måste medge
Att när jag vaknade vakna’ jag med glädje
Jag, en sång och en dansman
Åh… åh…

Diggi-loo diggi-ley, himlen öppnade sig
Det är knappt man sina ögon tror
Åh, jag ville gärna önska
Åt alla gyllene skor

Åh, jag ville gärna önska
Åt alla gyllene skor

Chords (akkorder)

The original song goes from E major, however this is kind a tough playing on a guitar, so I transposed it to C, which is much easier to play. By the way, the english version is F major.

English lyrics

Lightning and thunder, magic and wonder
I don’t know how, but it did happen to me
(You felt your heart was set free)

What a sensation, (you’re flying up high now)
Sweet inspiration, (you’re going to the sky now)
Couldn’t believe I was dreamin’
Couldn’t believe it was true

Diggi-loo diggi-ley, life is goin’ my way
When I’m walkin’ in my golden shoes
Everything I ever dreamed of has suddenly come true

Diggi-loo diggi-ley, let this miracle stay
I could be whatever I would choose
Please don’t wake me up
I’m dreamin’ of me in golden shoes

Golden reflections givin’ directions
Bringin’ the best that I have right out of me
(How in the world could this be?)

Knowing’ your senses, (what burning desire)
Climbin’ the fences, (it’s taking you up higher)
Now I believe I can make it
Oh… what a wonderful world

Diggi-loo diggi-ley, life is goin’ my way
When I’m walkin’ in my golden shoes
Everything I ever dreamed of has suddenly come true

Diggi-loo diggi-ley, let this miracle stay
I could be whatever I would choose
Please don’t wake me up
I’m dreamin’ of me in golden shoes

I know my dream was a fantasy illusion
But when I woke up, I came to the conclusion
I can be what I want to
Oh… oh…

Diggi-loo diggi-ley, let this miracle stay
I could be whatever I would choose
Please don’t wake me up
I’m dreamin’ of me in golden shoes

Please don’t wake me up
I’m dreamin’ of me in golden shoes

    Thanks a lot.
    I really love this song and I have been trying to find the chord and lyrics on a simple homepage. All those crappy lyrics sites where you have to close 100s of popups etc.

    Thanks man,
    Have a good one,
    Thomas

      Hi Thomas,
      I’m glad you liked it. Your frustration about the pop-ups etc. was exactly the same as mine and the reason I wrote this post. I REALLY like this song, and I would like to be able to play my guitar while reading the text and chords on the screen at the same time…

      Take care,
      /L
