Dutch song Saskia en Serge - 't Zijn de kleine dingen die het doen
with lyrics, music, video and English translation songtext


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

That little bit of sun, you have been waiting for for weeks
The hand that's reaching out to you, that you didn't expect
That little bunch of flowers at exactly the right time
A letter, suddenly, when you are loney or alone

Dat kleine beetje zon waar je al weken lang op wacht
Die uitgestoken hand die je van hem niet had verwacht
Dat kleine bosje bloemen en precies op dat moment
Die onverwachte brief als je alleen of eenzaam bent

It are little things that matter most, matter most
It are little things that matter most
It are little things that matter most, matter most
It are little things that matter most

't Zijn de kleine dingen die het doen, die het doen
't Zijn de kleine dingen die het doen
't Zijn de kleine dingen die het doen, die het doen
't Zijn de kleine dingen die het doen

That bright voice of a child that's colouring a dreary day
That conversation just when you felt gloomy, a bit down
It's bringing back the old days, it's like getting a balloon
It's colouring your life and suddenly brings out the sun

Die kinderstem die kleur geeft aan een saaie grijze dag
Dat onverwacht gesprek toen je het allemaal niet meer zag
’t Was even net als vroeger en je kreeg weer een ballon
Het geeft je leven kleur, er is ineens een beetje zon

It are little things that matter most, matter most
It are little things that matter most
It are little things that matter most, matter most
It are little things that matter most

't Zijn de kleine dingen die het doen, die het doen
't Zijn de kleine dingen die het doen
't Zijn de kleine dingen die het doen, die het doen
't Zijn de kleine dingen die het doen


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

We're living big, too often we raise uproar and are loud
We talk a lot, but very rarely listen what is said
We focus at one spot and do not often look around
We miss the little things and thereby we end up alone

We leven in het groot, we maken veel te veel misbaar
We praten wel, maar luisteren te zelden naar elkaar
We kijken naar één punt en veel te weinig om ons heen
We zien geen kleine dingen en dus blijven we alleen


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

It are little things that matter most, matter most
It are little things that matter most
It are little things that matter most, matter most
It are little things that matter most

't Zijn de kleine dingen die het doen, die het doen
't Zijn de kleine dingen die het doen
't Zijn de kleine dingen die het doen, die het doen
't Zijn de kleine dingen die het doen

Saskia & Serge (1967) is a Dutch singing duo, that consists of Ruud Schaap (1946) and Trudy van den Berg (1947). They are married since 1969. In 2017 they were singing together for 50 years non stop.

They started singing in Dutch: sweet, simple songs, 'luisterliedjes' ('listening songs', chansons) about nature, love and life. In 1971 they sang at the Eurovision Song Contest (with 'Time'/'Tijd') and came in sixth. From 1976 onward they sang in English, mainly country & western. In the nineties they released again albums in Dutch.

In 1970 they were awarded with a Silver Harp.
