Dutch song Henk Wijngaard - Met de vlam in de pijp
with lyrics, music, video and English translation songtext


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

With my truck blazing flames
I graze through the Brenner Pass
With my thirty tonnes and diesel
Far from home, but quite content
With my truck blazing flames
Through that endless streching night
And I'm thinking for a moment
Of my wife, who waits for me

Met de vlam in de pijp
Scheur ik door de Brennerpas
Met mijn dertig ton en diesel
Ver van huis, maar in mijn sas
Met de vlam in de pijp
Door die eindeloze nacht
En dan moet ik even denken
Aan mijn vrouw die op me wacht

Driving here is not so awful
All those nights away from you
'Cause my truck will always take me
Through the mist and through the cold
When I'm home again you'll ask me
"Stay a little longer, please"
And you know that I would like that
But bad enough, it cannot be

Het is niet erg om hier te rijden
Zoveel nachten ver van jou
Want mijn wagen zal me brengen
Door de nevel en de kou
Als ik thuis ben, zul je zeggen
"Blijf wat langer als het gaat"
En je weet, ik zou graag willen
Maar dat is iets dat niet bestaat

I graze through the Brenner Pass
With my thirty tonnes and diesel
Far from home, but quite content
With my truck blazing flames
Through that endless streching night
And I'm thinking for a moment
Of my wife, who waits for me

Met de vlam in de pijp
Scheur ik door de Brennerpas
Met mijn dertig ton en diesel
Ver van huis, maar in mijn sas
Met de vlam in de pijp
Door die eindeloze nacht
En dan moet ik even denken
Aan mijn vrouw die op me wacht

I've a short stop at the parking
Here along this endless road
But how many times I've been here
Well, only the moon will know
And the weekends that I will be
Home will be so great for us
Since I am away so often
Our life seems a refrain

Even stop ik op mijn rustplaats
Langs die eindeloze baan
Hoeveel keer ik hier gestopt ben
Ja, dat weet alleen de maan
En de weekends die ik thuis ben
Zal voor ons het einde zijn
Omdat ik zo lang van huis ben
Lijkt ons leven een refrein
