Erling Haaland's 'Flow Kingz' rap music video has been translated into English, the lyrics are hilarious

Long before he was banging in goals for fun at Manchester City, Erling Haaland was in his native Norway – rapping in a group with his childhood friends.

A video of their group 'Flow Kingz' performing the song 'Kygo jo' went viral a few years back, once it had become obvious that City striker Haaland was destined for greatness on the football pitch rather than in the recording booth.

A slightly bizarre music video for the song showed a young Haaland hanging about with his friends Erik Sandberg and Erik Botheim, both of whom are also now professional footballers.

The video, which you can watch below, included shots of the trio messing around and performing dance moves in various locations in their hometown including a volleyball court and a children's play area.

At one point, Haaland is filmed rapping while holding BBQ utensils, while in another shot he is seen poking his head out of the window of a playhouse.

If the video itself wasn't odd enough, the lyrics for the song have since been translated into English and are also pretty bizarre – particularly Haaland's verses.

Check them out below.

Erik Botheim: "Hello. How are you? I haven't seen you lately. Have you gone astray? I've been making a song and I earned a thousand millions. By the way, I've also been buying a gas grill. If you were wondering I've also been to the store. I have been shopping a lot because I have a lot of cash. Of course, I'll tell this to you my friend because I know that you don't have too much money left."

Erik Sandberg: "Yes, you can say that is nice. You did make my day, I'm very grateful for that. We are going to buy a mobile phone with subscription without a commitment period, which I will use during the whole day."

Erling Haaland: "Boys can you stop talking bulls***, now it did get so cosy. Talk about world crisis, I think it is much more important. Boys I'm Lyng and everyone knows me. I'm the one that people can see on the TV. I even look good when I eat, I think that's right."

All three: "Kygo yes!"

Erik Botheim: "In the past I was outside and I ate Caesar salad. For such a big guy like me, I need good food. I also went to the Bahamas on a trip but I didn't tell my wife so she got a bit angry. But I had a good time, it was so good. I would like to get back here and now but I have a lot to do in the office during the day. So let's go out and get some food in our stomach."

Erik Sandberg: "Yeah let's do it. I'll be happy to join. Let me take you to a wonderful, beautiful place. I don't remember what it's called but it's on a summer mountain pasture. I don't think it’s far, just a few miles. The last time I was there I saw something strange. It was strange that I couldn’t think clearly. But I'm not going to bother you with my boring story. Let's listen to what Lyng says."

Erling Haaland: "Boys can you stop talking bulls***, now it did get so cosy. Talk about world crisis, I think it is much more important. Boys I'm Lyng and everyone knows me. I'm the one that people can see on the TV. I even look good when I eat, I think that's right."

Erik Botheim: "Yes that's catchy Lyng. Something that's also catchy is this Kygo instrumental. Which I think gives the song a whole new dimension, like the top of a tower cake."

Erling Haaland: "Yes but I can't dance to Kygo."

Erik Botheim: "You know what Lyng, me and Tommy will show you how to do it."

Erling Haaland: "Make the music louder!"

Erik Botheim: "Yes, should we?"

Erik Sandberg: "Yes bro!"

All three: "Kygo yes!"

While some of the lyrics have no doubt been lost in translation, it still seems somewhat unusual to rap about buying mobile phone subscriptions, gas grills and eating salads.

Thankfully, all three lads have now forged a career in football rather than relying on their music.
