picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch songs translated English translation

No one wants to leave his child alone
You would like to protect her with a wall
And then preserve her youth for ever
And save her from grief and sorrow
No one wants to leave his child alone

Niemand laat zijn eigen kind alleen
Je bouwt het liefst een muurtje om haar heen
Je wilt zo graag haar jeugd bewaren
En haar veel verdriet besparen
Niemand laat zijn eigen kind alleen

You were always standing by my side
And you have done immensely much for me
You gave me all that you promised
Built a life I do believe in
You were always standing by my side

Jij wou altijd, altijd naast me staan
Je hebt ontzettend veel voor mij gedaan
Jij gaf mij wat je beloofde
Een leven waar ik in geloofde
Jij wou altijd, altijd naast me staan

Je wilt zo graag haar jeugd bewaren
En haar veel verdriet besparen

What I found in you, still finding now
I am passing down now to my child
Nothing can wipe out this picture
She should never miss my deep love
You will do everything for your own child

Wat ik bij jou vond en nu nog vind
Dat draag ik nu over op mijn kind
Niets zal ooit dat beeld uitwissen
Nooit mag zij mijn liefde missen
Je doet toch alles, alles voor je kind

Willy and Willeke Alberti was an occasinal duo of father and daughter: Willy Alberti (1926-1985), stage name of Carel Verbrugge, and Willeke Alberti (1945), stage name of Willy Albertina Verbrugge.

In the 1940's and 1950's Willy Alberti mostly sang in Italian - this explains his Italian sounding stage name. From 1958 onward he sang several duets with his daughter Willeke Alberti. They sang more songs together over the years, although she mainly had a career of her own.

Some well-known songs of Willy Alberti are: 'Marina' (1959); 'Good night child'/'Buona notte bambino' (1963); 'That corny sentence'/'Dat afgezaagde zinnetje' (1967); and 'To see a smiling child'/'De glimlach van een kind' (1968).

Daughter Willeke Alberti scored a big hit with her single 'Mirror image'/'Spiegelbeeld' (translation from a French song) in 1963. In 1975 she played the title character in the movie Red Sien/Rooie Sien. This role brought her again a hit, 'Again and again'/'Telkens weer' (1975). She played in over ten films and released over 15 albums. Willeke Alberti won an Edison Music Award for her first album (1965) and a Golden Harp oeuvre award in 1981.

Only two years after the success of above song, in 1985, Willy Alberti died suddenly because of liver cancer, only 59 years old. In 2008 a compilation album was released with the title The 100 most beautiful songs of Willy & Willeke Alberti/De 100 mooiste liedjes van Willy & Willeke Alberti (2008).
