Swedish term or phrase: Ekorrn satt i granen
skulle skala kottar
fick han höra barnen
då fick han så bråttom
hoppa han från tallegren
stötte han sitt lilla ben
och den långa ludna svansen

The squirrel was sitting in a spruce tree
Explanation:
The squirrel was sitting in a spruce tree
shucking a pinecone
he heard children
and had to hurry
he jumped out of the tree
and hurt his leg
and his long bushy tail

or something about like that. It's an old nursery rhyme.
