The Sauna Song
Patrick Niemisto and Norm Wheeler
2005 ASCAP

Way up north in the U.P. woods
At the edge of a big lake stood
A handmade cabin on sacred land
It was the finest sauna ever built by man

Fires too hot, burn the sauna down
Fires too hot, burn the sauna down
Fires too hot, burn the sauna down
Fires too hot!!!

Early one mornin? one frosty day
Fishin? through the ice on Keweenaw Bay
Heikki and Eino like to fish a lot
They like their brewskies cold and their saunas hot


Instrumental Bridge (traditional Finnish melody)

Two old guys on a ten dollar bet
Each tryin? to make the other one sweat
The first he put ?em both on the floor
The second he set ?em right out the door


Local folks said it was one of those days
Two naked Finns and a great big blaze
All bets are off when no clothes are on
And your wallet?s in the sauna and the sauna?s gone!!!
