        En dan krijg je kaas op brood
        op een klein bordje en dan word je zooooo groot!


  Dutch birthday songs with music and sheet music.

Commentary: Last line: an adult lifts the young child up, as high as possible.

The melody is the same as the children's song 'Daar was laatst een meisje loos' ('Once there was a maiden keen').

Play the violins, the flute and beat the drum
'cause Annika is yearing and the flags have been put out.
Ei, ei, ei
we're full of joy
'cause Annika is yearing
and we party with her
ei, ei !


        Twee violen en een trommel en een fluit
        want Annika is jarig en de vlaggen hangen uit.
        Ei, ei, ei
        we zijn zo blij
        want Annika is jarig
        en dat feest vieren wij
        ei, ei !


  Dutch birthday song with music and sheet music.

Commentary: In Dutch the expression 'hij is jarig' literally: 'he is aging one year' or something like 'he is yearing' (the translation in English 'it's his birthday' would be in Dutch 'het is zijn verjaardag', 'it is his yearday'. A 'birthday', 'geboortedag', you have only once, when you are born).

Whose is tomorrow's birthday?
It is yours!
Whose is tomorrow's birthday?
It is yours!
Whose is tomorrow's birthday?
It is yours!
Whose is tomorrow's birthday?
It is yours!


        Wie is er morgen jarig?
        Dat ben jij!
        Wie is er morgen jarig?
        Dat ben jij!
        Wie is er morgen jarig?
        Dat ben jij!
        Wie is er morgen jarig?
        Dat ben jij!


  Lyrics and tune: Marijke van Leeuwen (in the 1970's).

Commentary: This song is sung the day before a child's birthday.

In Dutch the expression 'it's his birthday' is literally: 'he is aging one year' or better 'he is yearing' ('hij is jarig').

So this song says literally translated: 'Who is yearing tomorrow? That is you!'.
