André van Duin (1947), stage name of Adrianus Kyvon, is a Dutch comedian, singer and songwriter. In his theatre and revue shows, he plays hilarious skits as silly characters, with funny voice and faces, sometimes slapstick-like, often with absurd humour. As singer he is mostly known for his carnival songs, funny songs and party songs (often sung as funny character of one of his revue shows).

In the 1970's Van Duin had a famous radio show, called the Thick Pulleditoff Show/Dik Voormekaar Show (1973-1985 and 2000-2003). Together with Ferry de Groot, he recorded the voices of over 20 characters. On television, Van Duin was involved in programmes like Animal Crackers (1988, 2013), At land, at sea and in the air/Te land, ter zee en in de lucht (1971-2010) and Who am I/Wie ben ik (1990-2001).

Some of his most famous songs are: 'The maracas samba'/'De sambaballensamba' (1975); 'Little Willem'/'Willempie' (1976); 'Tinkletinkleting, what is that thing'/'Tingelingeling, wat is dat voor een ding' (1978); 'What's this, a horse in the hall'/'Er staat een paard in de gang' (1981); and the 'Pizza song'/'Pizza-lied' (1993). He released over 30 albums. He won the Toon Hermans Award (2006) and the Image and Sound Oeuvre Award (2010).

André van Duin released above song as a carnival single, on the occasion of the 1980 European Football Championship. Remarkable is, that 12 football players sang along (in the choir). The song was in the National Hit Parade Top 40 for eight weeks (highest position: number 2).

In the song, the word 'lion' refers to the lion in the Dutch coat of arms (originally in the coat of arms of the House Nassou, that is the Dutch royal family).

The name 'Holland' is used in English for the whole of the Netherlands. In fact this is not right: only the two provinces in the west, along the North Sea, are called North- and South-Holland (the Netherlands consists of 12 provinces). Even so, also Dutchmen sometimes use 'Holland' in this way. The official name of the country is: The Kingdom of the Netherlands/Koninkrijk der Nederlanden (including three Caribbean islands) and the country in Europe is in Dutch simply called: Netherland/Nederland (singular), meaning: 'low land'.

In the last sentence, Van Duin adresses the football players singing along. He hopes that they can play football better than they can sing. Unfortunately, in 1980 the Dutch team had to go home after just four games.
