Use of Hej in a lyric

The Gyllene Tider song 72 - Gyllene Tider – 72 Lyrics | Genius Lyrics - Has Hej used in a way that I can’t quite pin down.

Would you say that this means “hey” or “hello” ? I’m not sure how i would know whether it’s a greeting or kind of interjection. It’s not massively important but I find lyrics are a good way of expanding my knowledge, while listening to great music.

I’m not good at understanding lyrics, not even in my native language :slight_smile: That said, I think it’s “Hello”. Or they just needed something short to fit the rhythm. BTW, English “hey” is often translated as “hallå”.

Close enough…often a bit of poetic licence in play! tack
