And they're calling me Foxy Foxtrot
Clear the dance floor, polish up
'Cause when the music band starts playing
I keep going all night long
Then I get that itchy feeling
And I cannot stop my legs
I'm searching for a girl here
Who wants to dance a while with me

En ze noemen me Foxie Foxtrot
Wrijf de dansvloer effe op
Want als de band begint te spelen
Nou, dan hou ik nooit meer op
Dan begint mijn bloed te kriebelen
En mijn benen staan niet stil
Is hier soms een mooi meissie
Dat effe dansen met me wil

Oh, Foxy Foxtrot, you have legs that are elastic
And you're going to a dancing every night
Young man, can I borrow your girlfriend for a moment
To swing a little with her, 'cause I'm still not tired
And if your lover for a short while will stop dancing
I will shout: "Quick quick slow", 'cause Foxy grabs his chances
Oh, Foxy Foxtrot, you have legs that are elastic
And you're going to a dancing every night

O, Foxie Foxtrot met je elastieken benen
Die wil elke avond naar een dancing toe
Zeg jongeman, mag ik je meissie effe lenen
'k Wil met haar swingen, want ik ben nog lang niet moe
En wil je vrijer dan niet even met je dansen
Dan roep ik: "Quick quick slow", want Foxie grijpt zijn kansen
O, Foxie Foxtrot met je elastieken benen
Die wil elke avond naar een dancing toe

Yes, my whole life long I'm dancing
In every disco, every club
If there is one thing I could wish for
I live to be a hundred years
And of course it won't be easy
To dance the foxtrot at that age
But instead I'll dance the English waltz together with my Sjaan

Ja, zo dans ik heel mijn leven
In elke discotheek of zaal
Ik hoop nog één ding te beleven
Dat ik de honderd nog eens haal
Dan zal het dansen van zo'n foxtrot
Niet zo 1, 2, 3 meer gaan
Maar dan dans ik wel een Engels walsje met mijn eigen Sjaan

Nico Haak (1939-1990), was a Dutch singer who was known for his party songs, dancing songs and sing-along songs. He performed with a band named The Panic-Mongers/De Paniekzaaiers.

Haak scored several hits in the seventies and eighties, like: 'Ukelele'/'Joekelille' (1973); 'Honky-tonk pianist'/'Honkie-tonkie pianissie' (1974); 'Is your mother not home'/'Is je moeder niet thuis' (1978); and 'Nothing ventured, nothing gained'/'Niet geschoten is altijd mis' (1982).

The above song 'Foxy Foxtrot'/'Foxie Foxtrot' (1975) was his biggest hit. It was in the National Hit Parade Top 40 for nine weeks (highest position: 4). A foxtrot is a simple dance, invented in the 1910's. It is similar to a quickstep. It is usually danced to ragtime music or big band music.

Peter Koelewijn (1940) was a singer and songwriter, known for the first rock-and-roll hit in the Dutch language: 'Get off that roof top'/'Kom van dat dak af' (1959). He wrote songs and worked as a manager for many other artists, like Ria Valk, Willeke Alberti, Bonnie St. Claire, Ronnie Tober ('Splash and paddle'), Rob de Nijs and Saskia & Serge.
