Well, I love this song.

From the first, the singer, Trine Rein, sings,

"Roll over baby".

I am sorry I don't get the meaning even considering the context following it.

I have my paid dictionary but I decided use to free online dictionaries, since mine is too complex.

The definition of "roll over" is, according to this dictionary,

transitive verb

1a: to defer payment of (an obligation)

b: to renegotiate the terms of (a financial agreement)

2: to place (invested funds) in a new investment of the same kind

And according to this dictionary,

verb (used without object)

to move along a surface by revolving or turning over and over, as a ball or a wheel.

to move or be moved on wheels, as a vehicle or its occupants.

SEE MORE verb (used with object)

to cause to move along a surface by revolving or turning over and over, as a cask, a ball, or a hoop.

to move along on wheels or rollers; convey in a wheeled vehicle.

I don't understand what "roll over" means here, in connection with the following lyric "the time has come, to make a little bit more room".

May be, should I take the phrase literally, "roll over", in which the lover rolls his body over and around the hay or the pith of the rice(wheat, corn etc) paper tree "to make a little bit more room"?

Thank you for lifting up my interest in this song in advance(m_m).

Yep, I'd say your assumptions are right.

For example, if I'm in the bed and tell my boyfriend to "roll over", I'm just asking him to roll to the side/another position.
