Yes, he is crazy mad 'bout the piano reggae
That good old-fashioned honky-tonky-tonk
Yes, he is crazy mad 'bout the piano reggae
Going one-two-three-four, left and right a bang
He's full of joy when he is beating the piano
You hear the piano legs distinctly creaking, groaning
Yes, he is crazy mad 'bout the piano reggae
That good old-fashioned honky-tonky-tonk
Going one-two-three-four, left and right a bang

Ja, hij is stapelgek op de pianoreggae
Die ouderwetse honky-tonkie-tonk
Ja, hij is stapelgek op de pianoreggae
Van je een-twee-drie-vier, links en rechts een bonk
Vol pure vreugde zit-ie op 't klavier te dreunen
Terwijl de pianopoten hoorbaar staan te kreunen
Ja, hij is stapelgek op de pianoreggae
Die ouderwetse honky-tonkie-tonk
Van je een-twee-drie-vier, links en rechts een bonk

The pianist is murdering the piano without doubt
He's taming every instrument, he always pulls it off
His final chord is grandiose, it makes you shivering
He turns the wonky piano into piles of fire wood

De pianist, dat is beslist een pianomoordenaar
Geen instrument dat hij niet temt, het komt steeds voor mekaar
Z'n slotakkoord is ongehoord, want daarvan word je koud
Maakt, van wat eens een piano was, een stapel aanmaakhout

His neighbour says: "He plays so real, smashing all to pieces here"
His girlfriend laughs, is whispering: "Oh, it's swinging jolly good"
He's undisturbed and all the time he keeps playing with a smile
And the neighbours are all deeply moved: this is astonishing

Z'n buurman zegt: "Wat speelt-ie echt, hij slaat alles kort en klein"
Z'n meisje lacht en fluistert zacht: "O, het swingt zo reuzefijn"
Maar onverstoord gaat hij maar voort, met een lacht op z'n gezicht
En de buren denken diep ontroerd: d'r wordt iets groots verricht

Het Cocktail Trio (1951-1985) was a Dutch band that was popular in the 1950's, 1960's and 1970's. The three band members were: Tonny More (singer and guitar), Ad van de Gein (piano) and Carel Alberts (double bass). The band was founded by Ad van de Gein, who also wrote several songs for the band and for other artists.

Some well-known songs of the trio are: 'Flea circus'/'Vlooiencircus' (1965); 'Who has seen the key of the jukebox'/'Wie heeft de sleutel van de jukebox gezien' (1965); 'It's always carnival for me'/'Het is altijd carnaval voor mij' (1968); and 'Be kind to each other'/'Lief zijn voor elkaar' (1973, carnival song).

In the 1970's the trio played mainly party songs, sing-along songs and carnival songs. They also composed dozens of tunes for commercials, like 'Long live the man of the SRV'/'Leve de man van de SRV' (driving neighbourhood shop); and 'It has to be Inter-Furnishing'/'Het moet van Intermeubel zijn' (1965).

Honky-tonk is a kind of country music, also influenced by blues and R&B. It is mainly played in bars or during parties, often a piano is used that is slightly out of tune.
