Norwegian women walking down the street

Elise and I were in Greece

Every day we went running

One day I did not feel well

So I stayed home

When she came back

She was disgusted

And a little scared

Ten men had stopped their cars

One after the other

Lowering their windows

To tell her all sort of things

You do not do that in Norway


Never whistle to women

Never call them names

Never touch them

Looking at a woman's body

Whatever she may be wearing

Is usually not seen as something positive in Norway

Norwegian woman are free to wear whatever they wish
