Why should you be so sad
the sun is bright and warm, Minushka.
Please look up to the sky
there's not a cloud today.


        Waarom zo treurig
        bij de warmte van de zon, Minoeshka?
        Kijk toch omhoog
        er is geen vuiltje aan de lucht.


Listen, from afar
is a sound of music to be heard.
It's a pity that your lover left
but Minushka find someone to dance with!


        Hoor Minoeshka, hoor
        klinkt er daar geen dansmuziek ver weg?
        Dat je vrijer wegging dat was pech
        zoek je maar een ander bij het dansen!


  Dutch children's dance with music.

Commentary: The children stand in a circle, holding hands. Line 1-2: they slowly step sidewards (five steps). Line 3-4: idem, in the other way (four steps).

Line 5-8: the children face each other in pairs. They take each others right hand and dance (skipping/bobbing) alongside each other, passing, to the next child in line. They take each others left hand and so on.

Second verse is repeated.

Heel and toe and heel and toe
and slap your hands on both your knees.
Heel and toe and heel and toe
la la la la la la!


        Hak en teen en hak en teen
        je beide handen op je knie.
        Hak en teen en hak en teen
        la la la la la la!


Clap your right hands now, your left hands now
and slap your knees with both your hands.
La la la la, la la la la
la la la la la la!


        En je rechterhand, je linkerhand
        je beide handen op je knie.
        La la la la, la la la la
        la la la la la la!


  Dutch children's dance with music and sheet music.

Commentary: The children stand in a circle, in pairs facing each other. Line 1: put one foot forward on heel, toe, heel, toe. Line 2: clap against each others hands, three times; slap your knees with hands, three times. Line 3: repeat line 1 with the other foot. Line 4: the two children hitch in their arms and dance around one time.

Line 5: the two children face each other again; slap right hands on each other, three times; idem with left hands. Line 6: repeat line 2. Line 7-8: repeat line 4.

The children can turn around and face the other child next to them and repeat the song.

Robinson, Robinson
you will travel by balloon
above sea, above sea
altogether with your love.


        Robinson, Robinson
        reizen in een luchtballon
        overzee, overzee
        met je meisje samen mee.


One, two, three, four
we're dancing and we're singing
and we have a lot of fun.
Five, six, seven, eight
mom is blowing out the candles
I say 'nighty night'!


        Een, twee, drie, vier
        we dansen en we zingen
        en we hebben veel plezier.
        Vijf, zes, zeven, acht
        moeder blaast de kaarsjes uit
        en ik zeg goedenacht!


  Dutch children's dance with music and English translation.
