Danish band that sings "Summer House in Skagen"?

A Dane I knew a few years ago played a very cool album for me, with a sort of mellow soft-rock sound, but the lyrics as she translated them were bizarre. The most memorable for me was about an old man screwing the young babysitter in his summer house in Skagen. There was also one that went "I like to fuck pigs and sheep" or something like that. According to her this group was quite well known / popular.

I don't speak Danish, so can't figure out how to search for them.

What is the name of the band? Anywhere on the net I can get links to English translations of the lyrics to their songs?

The thing about fucking pigs and sheep reminds me of the song "Jeg vil i seng med de fleste" (I want to sleep with most people) by the quite popular Det Brune Punktum (the brown dot/period sign).

Here's the lyrics to Jeg vil i seng med de fleste in Danish:

Når jeg går rundt på mine bare tæer i haven
nyder jeg roser vel som tidsler (mmh mmh)
Og selvom det klæder mig godt med meget stramme bukser
så går jeg ligeså tit i kjole (mmh mmh)

Det blir en god dag
Jeg har en bred smag

Jeg vil i seng med de fleste
Mænd og koner og heste, grise køer og får
Jeg vil i seng med de fleste
To på 30 og 1.g på øregård

Hvis jeg f.eks vil ha spilledåsen luftet,
så kan jeg sove på terassen (mmh mmh)
Men jeg kan også spørge Søs om hun er med på,
en 69 på madrassen (ja ha)

Det blir en god dag (det blir en god dag)
Jeg har en bred smag (jeg har en bred smag)

Jeg vil i seng med de fleste:
Mænd og koner og heste, grise, køer og får
Jeg vil i seng med de fleste:
Dem med kraftigt, men også dem med sparsomt hår
Jeg vil i seng med de fleste:
Mænd og koner og heste, grise, køer og får
Jeg vil i seng med de fleste:
June og Peder og Ingrid inde fra tjæreborg

Lige når jeg vågner skal jeg næsten altid tisse,
men jeg skal også lave pølser (mmh mmh)
Og hvis jeg er sulten smørrer jeg mig en ostehørmer,
eller en ørelægensnatmad

Det blir en god dag
Jeg har en bred smaaag

Jeg vil i seng med de fleste:
Mænd og koner og heste, grise, køer og får
Jeg vil i seng med de fleste:
Bent og Susse
Og alle dyr i knutenborg
Jeg vil i seng med de mindste:
Mænd og koner og heste, grise, køer og får
Jeg vil i seng med de fleste:
og dem som fisen lugte kan
Jeg vil i seng med Hr. Nielsson
Dem fra tv
og også fisens ejermaaand
og også fisens ejermand

And my quick and dirty translation:

When I walk around barefeet in my garden
I enjoy the roses as well as thistels (mmh mmh)
And even though I look good in very tight pants
I wear a dress just as often (mmh mmh)

I't going to be a good day
I have a wide taste

I want to sleep with most people
Men and women and horses, pigs, cows and sheep
I want to sleep with most people
Two people aged 30 and the freshmen at Øregård high school

If I for example want to air my music box
I can sleep on the terrass (mmh mmh)
But I can also ask Søs if she's up to
A 69'er on the mattress (yeah, yeah)

I't going to be a good day (I't going to be a good day)
I have a wide taste (I have a wide taste)

I want to sleep with most people
Men and women and horses, pigs, cows and sheep
I want to sleep with most people
Those with a full head, and also those with less hair
I want to sleep with most people
Men and women and horses, pigs, cows and sheep
I want to sleep with most people
June and Peder and Ingrid from Tjæreborg

When I wake up I almost always have to pee
But I also have to take a shit (mmh mmh)
And if I'm hungry I'll make myself a sandwich with cheese
Or an ørelægensnatmad (untranslateable, it's a bad pun on a known open faced sandwich)

It's going to be a good day
I have a wide taste

I want to sleep with most people
Men and women and horses, pigs, cows and sheep
I want to sleep with most people
Bent and Susse
And all the animals at Knutenborg animal park
I want to sleep with the smallest people
Men and women and horses, pigs, cows and sheep
I want to sleep with most people
And those who smell the fart
I want to sleep with Mr. Nielsson
The people on tv
And also the person who farted
And also the person who farted

I don't know Det Brune Punktum's music that well but they might have done a song about screwing in Skagen. I'll try searching for it and report back if I find anything.

I, too, thought of "Jeg vil i seng med de fleste" as a candidate for the second song Meatbomb mentions. No idea of what the first song might be, though.
