Dutch song Harry Klorkestein - O o Den Haag
with lyrics, music, video and English translation songtext

I would surely one more time, as in the old days
Just want to live in Moerwijk
After dinner playing football in the garden
The parents as support
And in December with the neighbour kids a hunt
For Christmas trees in garbage
To make a fire on New Year's Eve
Above all, old car tires smoked so great

Ik zou best nog wel een keertje, net als vroeger
In Moerwijk willen wonen
Na het eten een partijtje voetbal in de tuin
De ouders langs de lijn
En in december met de hele buurt op jacht
Om kerstbomen te rausen
Op oudejaarsavond fikkie stoken
Vooral die autobanden rookten fijn

I would surely one more time with my old father
Watch one more game of ADO
In the Zuiderpark, at the long side, a hot sausage
Supporters all around
And then grumble about Theo van den Burg
And that long fellow Vianen
Every low shot that piece of shit was diving
Just right over the ball

Ik zou best nog wel een keertje met die ouwe
Naar ADO willen kijken
In het Zuiderpark te lange zij een warme worst
Supporters om je heen
Lekker kankeren op Theo van den Burg
En die lange van Vianen
Want bij elke lage bal dan dook die eikel
D'r steevast overheen

Oh, oh, The Hague
Charming town, behind the sand dunes
The Schilderswijk, the Lange Poten and the Plein
Oh, oh, The Hague
I never ever would switch places
I would start crying
If I should be no Haguener

O, o, Den Haag
Mooie stad achter de duinen
De Schilderswijk, de Lange Poten en het Plein
O, o, Den Haag
Ik zou met niemand willen ruilen
Meteen gaan huilen
Als ik geen Hagenees zou zijn

I would surely one more time, as in the old days
Go out with friends the night long
With my moped pick up a nice girl
And then go dancing in the Marathon
Afterwards there on the Rijkwijkse Plein
Eat herring, fresh with onions
The next day a hangover, so to Scheveningen
Pleasant frying in the sun

Ik zou best nog wel een keertje net als vroeger
Een nachie willen stappen
Op mijn Puch een wijffie halen
En daarna dansen in de Marathon
En na afloop op het Rijswijkse Plein
Een harinkie gaan happen
De dag daarna een kater, dus naar Scheveningen
Lekker bakken in de zon

I would surely one more time, well
Ah, why am I so daydreaming
'Cause The Hague has changed so much over the years
Too much, too quick for me, man
That new Babylon
Was that really necessary now to built that, be honest
It means the white stork in the Vijverberg
Will never there come back, right

Ik zou best nog wel een keertje
Ach, wat leg ik toch te dromen
Want Den Haag is door de jaren zo veranderd
Voor mij toch veel te vlug, joh
Dat nieuw Babylon
Moest dat er trouwens eigenlijk nou wel zo nodig komen
Zo komt die ooievaar op de Vijverberg
Dus never nooit meer terug, hè

Harrie Jekkers (1951) is a The Hague singer, songwriter and writer. In 1978 he started the band Klein Orkest ('Little Orchestra') (1978-1985). Besides that he had his biggest hit under the stage name Harry Klorkestein (anagram of Klein Orkest) with the song 'Oh, oh, The Hague'/'O, o, Den Haag' (1982). The lyrics is a series of memories of his childhood and teenage years in The Hague in the 1960's and 1970's.

Most well-known hits of the Nederpop-band Klein Orkest include: 'Just leave me alone'/'Laat mij maar alleen' (1982); 'Koos Unemployed'/'Koos Werkeloos' (1983); and 'Over the wall'/'Over de muur' (1984). The linked song is also translated and included on this website.

The Hague is the capital of the province South-Holland and is situated (with seaside village Scheveningen) at the shore of the North Sea. Moerwijk and the Schilderswijk are districts in The Hague. ADO is the football club of The Hague (Theo van der Burch and Martin van Vianen were players in the sixties and seventies). The street 'Lange Poten' and the square 'Plein' are both in the inner city of The Hague.

The band members refused to release the song 'O, o, Den Haag' (1982), because their other songs were engaged and socialy critic. Their roadmanager was photographed for the record cover. After it became a hit, the band used the song as extra after concerts.

It became a real classic and is sometimes regarded as the anthem of the city The Hague.
