Dutch song Andre Hazes - Een beetje verliefd
with lyrics, music, video and English translation songtext


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch songs translated English translation

I sat recently
In a discobar
And I felt very lonely that night
It was busy, hot
The next barstool was unused
I was longing so for you to be with me

In een discotheek
Zat ik van de week
En ik voelde mij daar zo alleen
't Was er warm en druk
Ik zat naast een lege kruk
Ik verlangde zo naar jou hier aan mijn zij

Yes, I still think back
What took place that night
When you took a seat right next to me
I asked: "Want a drink"
And you said: "Okay"
When we toasted at the bar, I felt so weak

Ja, ik denk nog steeds
Hoe het was geweest
Toen je naast me zat hier aan de bar
Ik vroeg: "Drink je mee"
Dat vond jij oké
Toen je proostend naar me keek, werd ik zo week

A little in love
A little in love
I thought: "A little in love"
If I would have known your thoughts
I had not waited for you
Like a child I just was dreaming
"This night long you will be mine"
But that dream was over soon

Een beetje verliefd
Een beetje verliefd
Ik dacht: "Een beetje verliefd"
Als ik wist wat jij toen dacht
Had ik nooit op jou gewacht
Als een kind zat ik te dromen
"Deze nacht ben jij voor mij"
Maar die droom ging snel voorbij

You got up and said
"Save my seat for me
I've to go now, but I'll be back soon"
But that stool stayed free
Till it slowly dawned on me
You'd left me behind and I was alone again

Jij stond op en zei
"Hou mijn plaatsje vrij
Ik moet even weg, maar 'k ben zo terug"
Ach, die kruk bleef leeg
Tot ik in de gaten kreeg
Dat je wegging zonder mij, ik was weer alleen

André Hazes (1951-2004) was an Amsterdam 'volkszanger' (singer for the common people) and is considered to be one of the best writers and interpreters of the 'life song' (levenslied): songs about the common people and the problems, misery and hardship of daily life. This is usually sung lamenting with whines and whimpers, with an Amsterdam accent, often accompanied by accordions.

His biggest hits (beside above song) are for example 'Lonely Christmas'/'Eenzame kerst' (1976); 'Not another word'/'Zeg maar niets meer' (1982) 'Blood, sweat and tears'/'Bloed, zweet en tranen' (1985); 'We love Orange (the national football team)'/'Wij houden van Oranje' (1988), and 'She believes in me'/'Zij gelooft in mij' (2004).

The above song 'A little in love' (1981) was in the National Hit Parade Top 40 for 13 weeks (highest position 3) and is still voted every year into the Top 2000 (traditionally broadcasted on the radio the last week of the year). No less than 13 of Hazes' hits have been voted into this list over the years.

During his career he released 36 albums. Also translated on this website: The kite (1977); Give me your fears (1983); and My small boy (1990).

André Hazes was very popular with the common people, but not appreciated (at all) by the more upper class/educated people. This changed at the end of his life, in 1999, after a documantary about his life that was a big success in the movie theatres. He became more and more a singer for all people and his older hits had nostalgic value for everyone who grew up with it.

Since 2004 Hazes had problems with noise in his ear and deafness, a disaster for his music career. His farewell-concert in the Amsterdam ArenA after his death in 2004 was life on television and got extreme high ratings. His songs were sung by artists like Guus Meeuwis, René Froger, Paul de Leeuw and Xander de Buisonjé; Johan Cruijff made a speech.

Later a musical was made about his life, He believes in me/Hij gelooft in mij (2012-2015). Partly based on this musical a movie was made, Blood, sweat and tears/Bloed, zweet en tranen (2015). Since 2013 every year a big 'Holland sings Hazes' sing-along concert is organised. His youngest son André Hazes jr. later had hits like 'Hey, old man' (2016).
