OriginalTraduzione finlandese / Finnish translation / Suomennos: Irmeli...
Nearer my job to thee,Työpaikka, kohti sua,
Nearer with glee,sua kohti ain'.
Three plunks for the office fee,Viimeiset rahani
But my fare is free.välittäjä sai.
My train is running fast,Nyt junaan riemulla,
I've got a job at last,työtä on tarjolla.
Nearer my job to theeTyöpaikka, kohti sua,
Nearer to thee.sua kohti ain'.
Arrived where my job should be,Kun taival päättyypi,
Nothing in sight I see,työtä ei näy.
Nothing but sand, by gee,Vain pöly silmiini
Job went up a tree.aavikolta käy.
No place to eat or sleep,Vain käärmeet sihisten
Snakes in the sage brush creep.liukuvat pensaaseen.
Nero a saint would be,Silmään mua sahasi,
Shark, compared to thee.senkin petturi.
Nearer to town! each dayPeukalokyydillä
(Hiked all the way),vien takaisin.
Nearer that agency,Välitystoimistoon
Where I paid my fee.löydän kuitenkin.
And when that shark I seeKun tapaan roiston sen,
You'll bet your boots that hehän matkan viimeisen
Nearer his god shall be,sua kohti, herrani,
Leave that to me.heti aloittaa.
