Sami tunes pulls so strongly at my heart strings like a part of me that was long lost!

English Translation:

The black-throated diver
She cries with the most beautiful sound
A clear sound

Then my grandfather put out his fishing nets
Into lake Vuolvojavri
Every night except on Sunday

When in early morning he emptied his nets
the little diver was caught
was mortally wounded

And we heard her beloved
mourning every night
Sadly missing her other half

The diver is crying
