Dutch song Henk Westbroek - Zelfs je naam is mooi
with lyrics, music, video and English translation songtext


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

Without any hurry you get dressed
Without giving it a thought or effort
It's the opposite just of a striptease
You show a perfect beauty

Als jij je kleren aantrekt zonder haast
En haast zonder erbij na te denken
Kijk ik naar een omgekeerde striptease
Van een volmaakte schoonheid

Every movement of your hands: a poem
When you bend, it's like a closing rose
Oh my beloved, oh sky-high shining star
With your shade you can even blind me

Elke handbeweging: een gedicht
Elke buiging als een roos die sluit
O schat van mij, o hemelshoge ster
Zelfs jouw schaduw kan mij verblinden


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

So don't leave me
Never go away
But if you disappear
Make sure that I can find you

Dus ga niet weg
Ga nooit bij me weg
Maar als je ooit verdwijnt
Laat mij je dan weer vinden


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

As long as you are near to me
I am loving the most perfect love
Drinking from a clear, pure water well
And sleeping with a blanket made of luck

Zolang ik jou heb, bij me heb
Heb ik de volmaakte liefde lief
Drink ik uit een pure waterbron
En slaap onder een deken van geluk

You're sunlight of the purest gold
You're a crystal flawless clear
So radiant that it's brilliant light
Could sometimes even blind me

Jij bent het goudste zonlicht
Een volmaakt helder kristal
Zo schitterend dat het licht ervan
Me soms dreigt te verblinden


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

But don't leave me
Never go away
And if you disappear
Make sure that I can find you

Maar ga niet weg
Ga nooit bij me weg
En als je ooit verdwijnt
Laat mij je dan weer vinden


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

Even love your name
More than with anybody else
Who does have the same name

Zelfs je naam is mooi
Mooier dan die van iedereen
Die dezelfde naam heeft


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

Even love your name
Much more than any other name

Zelfs je naam is mooi
Mooier dan die van iedereen


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

So don't leave me
Never go away
But if you disappear
Make sure that I can find you

Dus ga niet weg
Ga nooit bij me weg
Maar als je ooit verdwijnt
Laat mij je dan weer vinden

Henk Westbroek (1952) is a radio dj, singer and lyricist from Utrecht. In 1979 he formed the Dutch 'Nederpop-band' ('Netherpop') Het Goede Doel ('the good cause', 'the charitable institution'), with singer-composer Henk Temming. The word 'Nederpop' refers to the sudden growth of Dutch language pop music in the Netherlands in the eighties (with bands like Doe Maar, Frank Boeijen Group, Drukwerk, Klein Orkest and Toontje Lager).

The biggest hits of Het Goede Doel were 'Belgium'/'België' (1982), 'Hostage'/'Gijzelaar' (1982), 'Friendship'/'Vriendschap' (1983), 'I dance, so I exist'/'Ik dans, dus ik besta' (1986), 'Tried everything'/'Alles geprobeerd' (1986), and 'Everything can make a person happy'/'Alles kan een mens gelukkig maken', with singer René Froger (1989). In the 1990's they focused on their solo careers, but from 2001 onward, they started recording and giving concerts together again.

Henk Westbroek is also a radio dj, with radio programs like Think of Henk/Denk aan Henk (1992-2003). Furthermore he made television programs for Regio TV Utrecht (2002-present). He also is the owner of the café Stairway to heaven in Utrecht and was politically active in the city council of Utrecht.

Above song 'Even your name is beautiful'/'Zelfs je naam is mooi' (1998) was Henk Westbroek's biggest hit as a solo artist. It was for 33 weeks continuously in the National Hit Parade Top 40 and thereby it was admitted to the List of Most Successful Top 40 Hits (ranking number 68/100; this list contains only 8 hits in the Dutch language).

Every year the song is still voted into the Top 2000, traditionally broadcasted on the radio during the last week of every year. Henk Westbroek wrote the song for his beloved Julia (she is British), with whom he has a relationship since they were 17 years old (but they never married). They have a daughter together.
