    • 1968, Cornelis Vreeswijk (lyrics and music), “Personliga Person [Personal Person]”, in Tio vackra visor och Personliga Person [Ten beautiful songs and Personal Person]:
      ["Person" is pronounced like the last name "Persson" in this song] Personliga Persons fru och hans vidriga dotter, de sutto [archaic] i sina särkar ännu och sina papiljotter. Person såg på dem med föga sympati, och i sitt stilla sinna tänkte Person "Tvi!" – fast han ingenting sade, och det var ju bra det.
      Personal Person's wife and his disgusting [or "vile," "repugnant," "odious" or the like – stronger than "disgusting"] daughter, they were still sitting in their robes and their curlers. Person looked at them with little sympathy, and quietly to himself ["in his calm/still mind" – idiomatic], Person thought "Yuck!" – though he didn't say anything, and that's good [literally, "and that was good," or – see ju – "and yeah, that was good," "and that was good, of course," or the like].
