When my younger brother and I were little, our mother often sang to us, and soon our voices would be joining in with "Venter Paa Far"--Waiting for Father. This song is about two little blueeyed children who press their ' noses against the window pane as they eagerly await their father's homecoming. It ends with a happy rush to the door when they hear him approaching, and the words change to a joyous shout of "Her Kommer Far"--Here Comes our Father.
