Dutch song Jules de Corte - Ik zou wel een willen weten
with lyrics, music, video and English translation songtext


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

I would like to understand this
Why are all the mountains that high
Perhaps to collect all the snow there
Or to guard for the cold the deep valley
Or perhaps as a pillar to carry the heaven's arch
That's why all the mountains are high

Ik zou weleens willen weten
Waarom zijn de bergen zo hoog
Misschien om de sneeuw te vergaren
Of het dal voor de kou te bewaren
Of misschien als een veilige stut voor de hemelboog
Daarom zijn de bergen zo hoog

I would like to understand this
Why are all the seas very deep
Perhaps so the fish will be happy
They can't do so well without the water
Or perhaps to the glory of God who made all the world
That's why all the seas are so deep

Ik zou weleens willen weten
Waarom zijn de zeeën zo diep
Misschien tot geluk van de vissen
Die het water zo slecht kunnen missen
Of tot meerdere glorie van God die de wereld schiep
Daarom zijn de zeeën zo diep

I would like to understand this
Why do move the clouds so real fast
Perhaps it is a lesson to mankind
Teaching him borders are just fictive
Or perhaps it is only a heavenly angels play
That's why all the clouds are so fast

Ik zou weleens willen weten
Waarom zijn de wolken zo snel
Misschien dat het een les aan de mens is
Die hem leert hoe fictief een grens is
Of misschien is het ook maar eenvoudig een engelenspel
Daarom zijn de wolken zo snel

I would like to understand this
Why are all the people so tired
Perhaps it's because of their hurries
Or because they have thousands of questions
And for such a long time they have been on their way to peace
That's why all the people are tired

Ik zou weleens willen weten
Waarom zijn de mensen zo moe
Misschien door hun jachten en jagen
Of misschien door hun tienduizend vragen
En ze zijn al zolang onderweg naar de vrede toe
Daarom zijn de mensen zo moe
