It’s mixed with another Nephew song about Denmark’s desire to be loved by USA to the point of getting their own soldiers killed in American wars. Mixed with “The Way I Am” it becomes a song about a Scandinavian man who has fallen in love with an American couple and begs them to let him be part of their relationship. “Love me the Scandinavian way I are” here means “I will do anything for you, and you can do anything you want with me, as long as you love me”
