My sweet fair-haired Mariandel
When will we take a walk together
'Cause I don't like to stroll alone here all the time
When I see you in the distance
Under the trees along the canal
My deepest wish is to be walking by your side
Tell me: why did you look at me
That made my heart so disconcerted suddenly
My sweet fair-haired Mariandel
Please, will you take a walk with me now
And we will share our lives together from then on

Kleine, blonde Mariandel
Wanneer gaan wij eens aan de wandel
Want steeds alleen te lopen is heus niets gedaan
Als ik jou voorbij zie komen
Al langs de gracht onder de bomen
Dan zou ik zo wel aan je zijde willen gaan
Zeg mij: waarom keek jij mij aan
Want daardoor is mijn hart opeens van slag gegaan
Kleine, blonde Mariandel
Toe, ga met mij nu aan de wandel
En zullen wij het verd're leven samen gaan

Every morning my heart is on fire
Always by nine o'clock
You will pass my office 'round that time
And you're smiling at me
Woman, small and blond
This song tells to you
That I'm so in love

Elke morgen tegen negen uur
Raakt mijn hart vol van vuur
Dan kom jij aan mijn kantoor voorbij
En je lacht tegen mij
Kleine, blonde vrouw
Hoe ik van je hou
Zegt dit lied aan jou

Kees Pruis (1889-1957), was a Dutch singer and comedian, who was mainly famous during the 1920's and 1930's. He started as singer in revues (from 1914 onward) and later also sang on the radio. He was known for cheerful songs and hilarious skits in the theatres.

Some of his well-know songs are: 'Those who can't sleep'/'Zij die niet slapen' (1921); 'Where do I live'/'Waar woon ik' (1925); 'I have a nail in my shoe'/'Ik heb een spijker in mijn schoen' (1931); and 'Oh sergeant, they stole my socks'/'O sergeant, ze hebben mijn sokken gestolen' (1939).

The above song 'Mariandel' (1949) is a translation of the German song 'Mariandl' (1942). This is a song from the music play The violinist of the Court Council/Der Hofrat Geiger (1942). The play was adapted for screen in 1947 (in this film, the song is sung by Maria Andergast). A second film was made in 1961, Mariandl, and now the song was sung by Conny Froboess.

The name Mariandl means in German: 'little Marianne'. In Dutch the name Mariandel is in fact non-existing.

The song was recorded many times over the years, both in German and Dutch. For example by: Frans van Schaik, Bob Scholte, Eddy Christiani, Jan en Mien Froger, Maria Andergast, Waltraud Haas and Conny Froboess. The song was also translated in English by Eric Maschwitz and sung by Petula Clark and Jimmy Young in 1951.
