John Bauer (1882-1918) is possibly the most famous Swedish painter. Here's an ode to John Bauer trolls. (Put those last three words in a google picture search and you'll find out why).
The original song and a video for it can be heard/seen HERE.

Well, they're hugger-muggers of our society
They fist at modern types of forestry
And their caves are full of mildew
They were often portly tall
John Bauer paintings show we've had
The biggest trolls of all

Sweden had trolls
We had big trolls
They're bigwig norse
Cos they're woodmen of sorts
Yeah, Finland had trolls
And Norway had trolls
(But Sweden'd the biggest trolls of them all!)

And our trolls were in the mountains
And our trolls were in the hills
They're strong and stocky, dumb and inurbane
They were out there on their night shifts
A-sloshing through some mire
Everybody knows we've had
Great trolls retire

Sweden had trolls
We had big trolls
They're bigwig norse
Woodmen of sorts
Yeah, Jämtland had trolls
And Dalarna trolls
(Cos Sweden'd the biggest trolls of them all!)

Now trolls might be a scarcity
And they might lack finesse
But when they roam together
Stay away's what you'd do best
Some trolls are still in mountains
Way out sub-suburbanites
They're obsolete, but some big trolls
Still stomp around at night

Sweden has trolls
We still have trolls
They're bigwig norse
Woodmen of sorts
Lappland has trolls
And Värmland has trolls
(Cos Sweden's a hold out, for trolls all in all)

(Sweden has trolls!)
(Sweden has trolls!)

And if you're watching some films about them
Know they go asunder by sun
See trolls hobnob in their caverns
(And Sweden'd the biggest trolls of them all!)

Trolls - Caverns
Trolls - Caverns
Trolls - Caverns
Trolls - Caverns
