Hellad Velled - Poeg on kodus (English translation)

English translation

The son has come home

Now sing along
this tune can be heard across the forests
there's a party in Estonia
our son has come home.
 
Now sing along
start the party and heat the sauna
jump and have fun
our son has come home.
 
Grab a disk and put your skis on again
Estonian woman is a muse to a man
thorn into your throat and a nail to your wheel
we have a bear in our muscles and an eagle in our eyes.
 
Little nation is big when they win
from Munamäe shout across the world
when we set our course for the Song Festival
together we will go around the world
 
Now sing along
this tune can be heard across the forests
there's a party in Estonia
our son has come home.
 
Now sing along
start the party and heat the sauna
jump and have fun
our son has come home.
 
Throw a ball into the fence or the basket
you'll scare away all the gray days
slamming volleyball or "untrool" at the beach
give it your all, give it your last.
 
If you only come, you'll get a sauna whisk
a pint of something strong and beef on the plate
never heard such a voice
you'll sing your worries and problems to pieces
 
Now sing along
this tune can be heard across the forests
there's a party in Estonia
our son has come home.
 
Now sing along
start the party and heat the sauna
jump and have fun
our son has come home.
 
Wait for the engines sharpest power
don't listen to jealous people's abuse now,
you're a man who doesn't just jump
the sauna has to be heated at the right moment.
 
You may be coming from far or from the neighbors',
with a medal around your neck or just wind in your pockets,
there's a party on the meadow, in the hut and in the chamber
when you're needed in the battle for Estonia
 
Has come home
has come home
the son has come home
has come home
brother, father or son
the son has come home
 
[refrain 2x:]
Now sing along
this tune can be heard across the forests
there's a party in Estonia
our son has come home.
 
Now sing along
start the party and heat the sauna
jump and have fun
our son has come home.

this is a literal translation so sorry if some parts don't make sense. Also there were a couple of parts that I didn't know how to translate (Munamägi is a place name and I have no idea what "untrool" is...)
