English version of Swedish genitals song on the way

Swedish Television is to make an English version of a children's song that became a global sensation and that features dancing cartoon penises and vaginas.

The song was created for a children's television programme about the human body. A video for the song features dancing and singing genitals.

"We thought it would be fun to share it with the world because the video has become so popular and because people don't have a clue what we're singing about," songwriter Johan Holmström tells news agency TT, adding: "I've seen some weird translations online that are quite disgusting."

The Swedish version of the song refers to the penis and vagina as "snopp" and "snippa", the Swedish equivalents of "willy" and "twinkle".The original video has been watched some 4.7 million times online.
