picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

Always that newspaper makes you so dull
Don't yawn 'cause you're bored or tired
I am your wife and eat out of your hand
Charity'll never support me

Zit niet so suf met die eeuwige krant
Gaap niet van slaap of verveling
'k Ben toch je vrouw en ik eet uit je hand
Maar ik eet niet van de bedeling


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

Don't look like you think "Are you still alive"
I'm still exactly the same
I'm still that girl of our first love affair
You wanted at all cost, a while ago

Kijk me niet aan of je denkt: "Leef je nog"
Ben ik nog altijd die vrouw
Waarmee je destijds, wanneer was dat toch
Per se dat avontuurtje hebben wou


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

Be sweet once more, like those days
Ask me once more for a kiss
Bringing me roses, blushing at first sight
Just one more time, like those days
Be sweet and courtly once more
Mention my beauty, my charm
And like the old days the world will change in
A fairyland

Wees nog eens lief, net als toen
Vraag me nog eens om een zoen
Breng me weer rozen, sta weer te blozen
Als je me ziet, net als toen
Wees nog eens lief en galant
Vind me weer mooi en charmant
Dan wordt de wereld weer, net als vroeger
Een sprookjesland

Yes, you gained weight and your hair became grey
But you still can be romantic
Well, you can sometimes be childish, a fool
Moody at times and then rowdy

Ja, je wordt dik en je haar wordt al grijs
Maar je kunt heus nog wel flirten
Ach, je bent soms nog zo’n kind, zo onwijs
Nurks en baldadig om beurten


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

Do you remember, come on, don't say "no"
You said to me in those days
"We are the happiest couple on earth
My love, my sweetest love, will never pass"

Weet je nog, weet je nog, zeg nu niet "nee"
Weet je nog dat je toen zei
"'t Gelukkigste paar, dat zijn wij met z'n twee
Mijn liefde, liefste lief, gaat nooit voorbij"

And like the old days the world will change in
A fairyland

Wees nog eens lief, net als toen
Vraag me nog eens om een zoen
Breng me weer rozen, sta weer te blozen
Als je me ziet, net als toen
Wees nog eens lief en galant
Vind me weer mooi en charmant
Dan wordt de wereld weer, net als vroeger
