1, Het Vierdaagse Lied.

Wij lopen de Vierdaagse mee

Vol levenslust en moed

Als goede lopers blijven wij

Altijd vol goede moed

Want wij zijn een voor allen

En allen zijn wij een

Zo lopen wij door Neerland

En door het leven heen (2x)

 

Natuur gaf ons een motor mee

Van het allerbeste merk

Gaf ons een hart en longen mee

Gezond, gaaf, goed, en sterk

En een paar flinke benen

Een groot geluk op aard

Wie die niet weet gebruiken

Is zo'n motor niet waard (2x)


2, Captain Jack.

De 2 regels tussen ( ) zijn als set te vervangen met de overige setjes van 2 regels.

 

Heyy hoo Captain Jack

Meet me at the railroadtrack

 

(Whit a suitcase in my hand         )

(I'm gonna be your traveling man)

 

Your left, your left

Your left, right left

Your military left

Your left right left, go pick up your steps

Your left, your right, your left

 

 

With a knife in my hand

I'm gonna be your killing man.

 

With a bottle in my hand

I'm gonna be your drinking man.

 

With a shotgun in my hand

I'm gonna be your shooting man.

 

With a cycle in my hand

I'm gonna be your cycling man.

 

With a rope in my hand

I'm gonna be your hanging man.

 

With my boots in my hand

I'm gonna be your marching man.

 

With a bible in my hand

I'm gonna be your preaching man.

 

With a guitar in my hand

I'm gonna be your playing man.

 

With a cow in my hand

I'm gonna be your milking man.

 

 

With a horse in my hand

I'm gonna be your riding man.

 

With a book in my hand

I'm gonna be your reading man.

 

With a cigar in my hand

I'm gonna be your smoking man.

 

With a baby in my hand

I'm gonna be your feeding man.

 

With some flowers in my hand

I'm gonna be your charming man.

 

With a shovel in my hand

I'm gonna be your diggin man.

 

With some money in my hand

I'm gonna be your buying man.

 

With a brush in my hand

I'm gonna be your painting man.

 

With some bricks in my hand

T'm gonna be your building man



3, Ome Jack.

Ref. 

He ho Ome Jack

Heeft altijd een grote bek

Denkt altijd dat ie alles kan 

Maar ik weet er het fijne van.

 

 

Ome Jack die heeft een vrouw

Dat is een taart dat zeg ik jou

Wat heeft dat mens een stierenek

En ook nog eens een grote bek

 

Ref.

 

Ome Jack die houdt van plezier

Zuipt zich te pletter aan het bier

Komt vaak ook bezopen thuis

Gaat dan slapen voor de buis.

 

Ref.

 

Ome Jack doet niks aan sport

Hij slaat alles toch aan gort

Heeft hiervoor ook niet getraind

Denkt dat die 'm zo heeft uitgebeend.

 

Ref.

Nou loopt die de Vierdaagse mee

Lacht zich kapot, heeft pret voor twee

En blarenpijn dat heeft ie wel

Kijk maar goed, hij loopt niet snel.

 

Ref.

 

Ome Jack die ging net plat

Op een brancard dat is me wat

Het Rode Kruis brengt hem nu weg

Shit, wat heeft ie nou een pech.

 

Ref,

 

Ome Jack wat baalt ie nou

Zijn ego kreeg een flinke knauw

Heeft nooit meer commentaar gehad

Want die Vierdaagse is me wat.



4, The Yellow Ribbon.

I knew a girl she wore a yellow ribbon,

She wore it through the springtime and in the month of May,

And if you ask her why the hell she wore it,

She wore it for her lover, who is far far away

Far away, far away,

She wore it for her lover who is far, far away.

 

Arround the block she pushes a babycarriage,

She pushed it through the springtime and in the month of May,

And if you ask her why the hell she pushed it,

She pushes it for her lover who is far, far away,

Far away, far away,

She pushes it for her lover who is far, far away.

 

Her daddy keeps a shotgun in the kitchen,

He keeps it through the springtime and in the month of May,

And if you ask him why the hell he keeps it,

He keeps it for her lover who is far, far away,

Far away, far away,

He kept it for her lover who is far, far away.

 

Behind her back she holds a bunch of flowers,

She holds it through the springtime and in the month of May,

And if you ask her why the hell she holds them,

She holds it for her lover who is far, far away,

Far away, far away,

She holds it for her lover who is far, far away.

 

And on her hand, she wears a diamond ring,

She wears it through the springtime and in the month of May,

And if you ask her why the hell she wore it,

She wear it for her lover who is far, far away,

Far away, far away,

 

In a shed her daddy builts a wooden coffin,

He builds it though the springtime and in the month of May,

And if you ask him why the hell he builts it,

He builts it for her lover who is far, far away,

Far away, far away,

He builds it for her lover who is far, far away.

 

Nearby a stone a little girl is crying,

She's crying it though the springtime and in the month of May,

And if you ask her why the hell she's crying,

She's crying for her lover who was far, far away,

Far away, far away,

She's crying for her lover who was far, far away.


5, Ringa-ranga-roo.

Ref.

On the ringa-ranga-roo,

Pray what is that,

So soft and smooth,

Just like a pussycat,

It's all covered in hair,

And split in two,

That's what we call,

The ringa-ranga-roo.

 

Now their was a young girl,

Who had never been kissed,

Went out one night,

With a bloke half pissed,

He gave her inches one,

He gave her inches two,

And he played all night,

With the ringa-ranga-roo.

 

Ref.

 

And when she died,

All covered with syph,

They laid her out, 

All cold and stif,

And they came by one,

And they came by two,

And they came all night,

On the ringa-ranga-roo.

 

Ref.


6, A Yellow Bird

A yellow bird,

With a yellow bill,

Was perched upon,

My window still.

 

Ref.

So here we go,

We're at it again,

We're moving out,

We're moving in,

So here we go,

We're at it again,

We're moving out, we're moving in.

 

I lorred it in,

With a piech of bread,

And then i crussed,

It's littel head.

 

I lorred it in,

Wth a piece of cheese,

And then i crushed,

It's little knee's.

I lorred it in,

With a piece of seed,

And then i crushed,

It's little feet.

 

I lorred it in,

With a glass of grolsch,

And then i crushed,

It's tiny ball's.



7, So here we go.

ref.

So here we go,

We're at it again,

We're moving out,

We're moving in,

So here we go,

We're at it again,

We're moving out, were moving in.

Now listen folks,

I have to tell, i met a girl,

Her name was Bell.

 

I lorred her in,

And laid her down,

Her long blond hair,

Laid all arround.

 

I put my hand,

Upon her glove,

She said my friend,

You make me laugh.

 

I put my hand,

Upon her knee,

She said my friend,

Your tasing me.

 

I put my hand,

Upon her head,

She said my friend,

That don't feel bad.

 

I put my hand,

Upon her tight,

She said my friend,

You make me high.

 

I put my hand,

Upon her breast,

She said my friend,

You miss the best.

I put my hand,

Upon the spot,

She said my friend,

You make me hot.

 

I kissed her once,

I kissed her twice,

It felt so good,

It felt so nice.

 

I pushed it in,

I pulled it out,

It felt so good,

I had to shout.

 

The wedding was,

A formal one,

Behind my back,

Was daddy's gun.

 

And now i got,

A mother in law,

And fourteen kids,

Who call me pa.

 

The moral of,

This story is,

Instead of bourbon,

Stick to beer.



8, Roll me over

ref.

Roll me over, lay me down and do it again,

(i like the feeling)

Roll me over, roll me over,

Roll me over, lay me down and do it again.

 

This is number one,

And the fun has just begun.

 

This is number two,

And my hand is on her shoe.

 

This is number three,

And my hand is on her knee.

 

This is number four,

And we're rolling on the floor.

 

This is number five,

And she want to be my wife.

And we're  flying of to heaven.

And the nurse is at the gate.

 

This is number nine,

And the tinws are doing fine.

 

This is number ten,

And she said doe 't nu maar zelf.

14, Het kleine cafe a/d haven

De avondzon valt over straten en pleinen,

De gouden zon zakt in de stad,

En pleunen die moe in hun tenten verdwijnen,

Ze hebben de dag weer gehad,

De neonreclame die knippert langs ramen,

't motregent zachtjes op straat,

De stad lijkt gestorven toch klinkt er

muziek uit een deur die nog wijd open staat.

 

Daar in dat kleine cafe aan de haven,

Daar zijn de mensen gelijk en tevree,

Daar in dat kleine cafe aan de haven,

Daar telt je geld, of wie je bent, niet meer mee.


15, They say that in the army.

ref.

Oh, Lord I wanna go home,

My dad won't let me go.

 

They say that in the army,

The coffee is mighty fine,

We had a cup this morning,

And I lost a friend of mine.

 

They say that in the army,

The tea is mighty fine,

It looks like dirty water,

And it tastes like terpentine.

 

They say that in the army,

The food is mighty fine,

How the hell do they know,

They never tasted mine.

 

They say that in the army,

The girls are mighty fine,

They promise you Bo Derek,

And they gave you Frankenstein.

 

They say that in the army,

The tents are waterproof,

When you wake up in the morning,

You're swimming on the roof.

They say that in the army,

The boots are mighty fine,

You ask for size eleven,

They gave you number nine.

 

They say that in the army,

The beds are mighty fine,

How the hell do they know,

They never slept in mine.

 

They say that in the army,

The guns are mighty fine,

But when you pull the trigger,

They blow up like a mine.

 

They say that in the army,

The trucks are mighty fine,

But every time I step on,

I shiver down my spine.



16, Mama, mama can't you see

Mama, mama, can't you see,

What the army did to me.

Now I'm playing with my gun.

 

I used to drive a chevroly,

Now I'm walking every day.

 

Standing tall and looking good,

Ought to be in Hollywood.

Na negen maanden en een dag.

Toen kwam er weer een nieuwe Jan.

 

Maar de kleine Jan kwam niet alleen.

 

Hij bracht nog vele anderen mee.
