For the person who is hiding behind glass
For the person who has misty shut down windows
For the person who thought that he was lonely
You must know now, we all belong together

Voor degene in zijn schuilhoek achter glas
Voor degene met de dichtbeslagen ramen
Voor degene, die dacht dat hij alleen was
Moet nu weten, we zijn allemaal samen

For the person who has closed his book unread
For the one whose name is easily forgotten
For the one whose searching always has been useless
You must know now, we all belong together

Voor degene met het dichtgeslagen boek
Voor degene met de snelvergeten namen
Voor degene, met het vruchteloze zoeken
Moet nu weten, we zijn allemaal samen

For the person who is sleepless in the night
For the one who can't preserve or gain good fortune
For the one who's workless and just sits and waits
You must know now, we all belong together

Voor degene met de slapeloze nacht
Voor degene, die ’t geluk niet kan beamen
Voor degene, die niets doet, alleen maar wacht
Moet nu weten, we zijn allemaal samen

For the one with high-and-mighty gleaming pride
In his risk-free high tower without danger
On his risk-free high rock secure and safe
You must know now, we were not born in that way

Voor degene met zijn mateloze trots
In zijn risicoloze hoge toren
Op zijn risicoloze hoge rots
Moet nu weten, zo zijn we niet geboren

For the one who's face is open and bare
For the person with a naked body
For the one surrounded by white light
For the person who knows: we'll be together

Voor degene met het naakte lichaam
Voor degene in het witte licht
Voor degene die weet: we komen samen

Ramses Shaffy (1933-2009) was a Dutch actor, singer and songwriter. He was the son of an Egyptian consul and a Polish countess, but due to his parent's divorce and illness of his mother, he grew up with a foster family in Leiden.

In 1964 he formed the theatre group Shaffy Chantant. One of the members was singer Liesbeth List, with whom he made theatrical tours for over ten years. Big hits (beside above song) were his/their songs 'Sammy' (1966); 'Pastoral song'/'Pastorale' (1969); 'We will go one'/'We zullen doorgaan' (1975); and 'Let me'/'Laat me' (1978, translation).

As an actor he played in movies like William of Orange/Willem van Oranje, as earl of Egmont (1984) and In trust to one's luck/Op hoop van zegen, as ship-builders help Simon (1986).

In 2006 a cd-box with eight cd's was released with all his songs. During that event, he received an Edison Music Award for his complete oeuvre. The last ten years of his life he suffered from Korsakoff's syndrome, due to excessive alcohol use. Nevertheless he still performed his songs on stage until november 2009, just days before his death.
