That I love my dad a lot
Makes mother sometimes sad
And that I also love my mom
My father doesn't know
It are the secrets that I keep
When I'm with him or her
Because I still love both of them
Who loved each other once

Dat ik van mijn vader hou
Doet moeder soms verdriet
En dat ik van mijn moeder hou
Dat weet mijn vader niet
Zo draag ik mijn geheimen mee
En loop van hier naar daar
Nog altijd hou ik van die twee
Die hielden van elkaar

Their photo album with wedding pictures
Does still exist and I know where it is kept
Their photo album with wedding pictures
They look at each other full with love
No sign of the quarrels arising later
No sign of the day he would leave for good
No sign of the quarrels arising later
No sign of the day he would leave for good

Het foto-album van toen ze trouwden
Bestaat nog altijd en ik weet het te staan
Het foto-album van toen ze trouwden
Ze kijken elkaar zo vriendelijk aan
Nog niets van de ruzies die komen zouden
Nog niets van de dag dat-ie weg zou gaan
Nog niets van de ruzies die komen zouden
Nog niets van de dag dat-ie weg zou gaan

It was so terrible at first
No child deserves such mess
My father has a girlfriend now
And mother has a friend
You get used to it in the end
The pain lessens a bit
But in a spare hour, now and then
I glance through it again

Dat was zo rot in het begin
Dat heeft geen kind verdiend
Nu heeft m'n vader een vriendin
En moeder heeft een vriend
En alles went wel op den duur
Dan doet het minder zeer
Maar soms in een verloren uur
Pak ik dat album weer

Kinderen voor Kinderen ('Children for Children', 1980) is a Dutch national children's choir. Every year, since 1980, they release an album with new children's songs for the age of 8 till 13. Every year schoolchildren in that age range are asked what the subjects of the songs should be (like friendship, holiday, pets, starting secondary school, shyness, boredom, handicaps, divorce, war, illness, falling in love, acne, bullying, homework, etc.).

Well-known songwriters, lyricists and composers are asked to write one or two songs for a new record. Contributors were for example: Harry Bannink, Herman Pieter de Boer, Jan Boerstoel, Claudia de Breij, Tonny Eyk, Robert Long, Henk Temming, Henk Westbroek, Willem Wilmink and Ivo de Wijs.

The choir was set up to raise money for charity (especially for children in the Third World) - that explains the name of the choir. Since the 1990's, the choir no longer supports charities. Every year the songs are presented in a big TV-show, just before the new album is launched. This TV-show is also released on dvd.

The choir Children for Children/Kinderen voor Kinderen won 1 time a Diamond Album, 11 times a Platinum Album and 4 times a Golden Album (in 38 years). No less than seven singles (although they're not pop songs) reached the National Hit Parade Top 40.

The above song 'Photo album'/'Foto-album' (1981) was sung by Lara Brusse. It's about parents who are divorced and the pain it causes that, after the divorce, the child still loves both parents, who don't love each other anymore.

Willem Wilmink (1936-2003) was a poet, (lyrics) writer and singer. He wrote a dozen children's books and books about poetry for children; songs for children and adults; over 10 volumes poetry; and over 50 other books. Some well-known songs are: 'Put your fist on my fist'/'Deze vuist op deze vuist'; 'Litte Freek'/'Frekie'; 'The old school'/'De oude school'; and 'Radio 3'/'Hilversum III' (1984, translation).
