Per’s 60 for 60. #44 En händig man (A Handy Man.) 2007, the album is called “En händig man,” a supposed sequel to the very successful and appreciated “Mazarin.” Apparently the working title was “Mazarin II” even. Obviously this was the lead single accompanied by a video, directed by Jeffery Richt and filmed in Halmstad, around Slottsmöllan. Cute lyrics about Hanna, known from “Henry, dansa inte disco” by Gyllene Tider. She is still messy with a “stormy love life”… The lyrics to “En händig man” are actually quite sexy if you listen to them. After all, he is a “handy man” not a handyman. Jag kommer hem till dej/Jag är en händig man/Jag finns för dej jag kommer så fort jag bara kan/Jag lyssnar på dej håller om dej erbjuder en hand/Och vill du jag ska stanna är jag en händig man… I’m coming home to you I am a handy man/I’m here for you I’m coming as fast as I can/I listen to you hold you offer you a hand/And if you would like me to stay I am a handy man… The joke of the title is that Per is the lousiest handyman in the world, and of course he knows it! #per60
