Sally Karttunen of Kingsford, Michigan,
has written some songs about St. Urho.


Finnglish words by Sally Karttunen
to the tune of Kuka Sen Saunan Lämmitää

St. Urho was a Finnish lad,
A blue eyed, blond hair poika,
St. Urho, bashful suomalainen
Ate grapes and kala mojakkaa.
He chased those big green bugs away,
"Heinäsirkka, mene pois!"
He said it loudly, just one time ---
Tose 'hoppers had no choice!
And so the Finns are here right now,
To celebrate Dear Urho,
And sing and dance in temperatures…..
It's always way 'plo zero!
Then in snowbanks deep and rivers iced,
To our saunas we will go, oh!
Cuz' Urho is our hero, now,
As all good Finns must know!


Finglish words by Sally Karttunen
to the tune of: Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush

St. Urho, little Finnish lad,
A blond haired lad, a blue eyed lad,
St. Urho, bashful Finnish lad,
Chased 'tos grasshoppers 'vay,

An tats vhy Finns still 'member him,
And tans wid him and sing wid him,
An tats why Finns eat grapes wid him,
An haf dat Urho's Tay!
