Misses Maria every day

Alexander Rybak is in Azerbaijan and feels the Grand Prix circus. But his thoughts go to his girlfriend – who is a doctor in Africa.

Alexander Rybaks (26) doctor- girlfriend Maria Slyngstad (26) recently moved to Tanzania to work in the hospital for Haydom Friends Foundation. There are many who need help.

– “The day before Maria was leaving I had to run and buy medical equipment for her, because she was told that they had nothing in the hospital. That made me surprised and very worried for Maria”, Alexander says to Se og Hør.

1. Swedish lyrics

Jag älskar Dig så högt Maria,
ja, bara för Ditt vackra, ljuva namn.
Ja, många sköna flickor har det namnet,
jag därför drunknat har i mången famn.

Ibland så är Du blond Maria.
Rätt ofta är Du mörk, ibland brunett,
Ja, man får riktigt ligga i och fria
och sköta korten på det bästa sätt.

Ja, svärmor efter svärmor har jag skaffat,
där har det inte varit någon brist.
Polisen har mig många gånger haffat
och skyllt mig för att vara bigamist.

Jag älskar Dig så högt Maria,
ja, bara för Ditt vackra, ljuva namn.
Ja, många sköna flickor har det namnet,
jag därför drunknat har i mången famn.
