Dutch song Doe Maar - 32 Jaar
with lyrics, music, video and English translation songtext


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch songs translated English translation

Since a day or two, I feel butterflies
Since a day or two, numb in a nice way
Almost forgotten the feeling to be in love

Sinds een dag of twee, vlinders in m'n hoofd
Sinds een dag of twee, aangenaam verdoofd
'k Was haast vergeten hoe 't voelt om verliefd te zijn


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch songs translated English translation

Now I look around with a rosy view
Been alone too long and my life stood still
I didn't realise how small my world became

Ik kijk om me heen door een roze bril
Veel te lang alleen, 'k stond een beetje stil
Hoe kon ik 't weten, m'n wereldje was zo klein


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch songs translated English translation

But it is a bit strange: thirty-two years old
And my legs are shaking - they are shaking
When she is not with me - she's not with me

't Is wel een beetje raar: tweeëndertig jaar
Trillend op m'n benen - op m'n benen
Als ze is verdwenen - is verdwenen

Many men galore all line up for her
I don't care a rap, 'cause she looks at me
Love, love, I wonder: where have you been all that time

Mannen bij de vleet, wachtend in een rij
't Doet me toch geen reet, want ze kijkt naar mij
Liefde o liefde, waar was jij toch al die tijd


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch songs translated English translation

Everything she says, I swallow and accept
And these days I lost my sharp, clear vision, too
I couldn't care less though, as long as she shares my bed

Alles wat ze zegt, slik ik voor zoete koek
En m'n scherpe blik is ook al dagen zoek
Het kan me niet schelen, zolang ze maar met me vrijt

Doe Maar ('Just do it', 1978-1984) was a Dutch 'Nederpop'-band ('Netherpop'). This word refers to the sudden growth of Dutch language pop music in the Netherlands in the eighties (with bands like Het Goede Doel, Drukwerk, Frank Boeijen Group, Klein Orkest and Toontje Lager). Doe Maar was the first of these bands that scored hits.

The band Doe Maar had four regular members: Henny Vrienten (singer, bass guitar and songwriter), Ernst Jansz (singer, keyboards and songwriter), Jan Hendriks (guitar) and René van Collem (drums). The band was known for its music influenced by reggae and ska.

As soon as Henny Vrienten and Ernst Jansz started writing together, the band became an instant success, with top hits like 'Doris Day' (1981); 'The bomb'/'De bom' (1982); 'Is this everything there is'/'Is dit alles' (1982); 'Belle Helene' (1982); and 'Dad'/'Pa' (1983). Also later albums were successful and the band is in commercialy respect till this day the most successful band in the history of Dutch pop music.

In 1984 the band stopped due to too big success (too many screaming girls and fainting fans during concerts). Vrienten was considered the most tough and cool guy ever - all female fans wanted to have him and all male fans wanted to be like him. In 2000 they gave a reunion concert and released a new album. Also in 2008, 2012, 2013 and later years they gave series of concerts. In 2000 Doe Maar was awarded with an Edison Oeuve Award.

The band members had successful solo careers afterwards, for example Henny Vrienten wrote music for children's television series, for Dutch musicals and movies, made own theater shows and released own albums. Since 2016 he is part of the supergroup Strange Boarders, with Boudewijn de Groot and George Kooymans.

In 2007-2008 a musical with Doe Maar songs was put on the stage in the theaters, called Just do it!/Doe Maar!.

The song '32 Years old' (1980, written and sung by Henny Vrienten), was in the National Hit Parade Top 40 for five weeks and is still every year voted into the Top 2000 (traditionally broadcasted on the radio the last week of the year), as high as place 105 of 2000. No less than eight of their hits have been voted into this list over the years.
