picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch songs translated English translation

So many lovely babies there
But not as sweet as you
Anne
Because of all the white and lights
You closed your eyes, confused and scared
Anne

Er waren mooie baby's bij
Maar niet zo lief als jij
Anne
Van al dat wit en zoveel licht
Gingen van schrik je ogen dicht
Anne

And I just choked up a little bit
Saw ten fingers and ten toes
Anne
I was red, hot and full of joy
You almost started chuckling
Anne

Even kreeg ik kriebels in mijn keel
Maar je had geen pink teveel
Anne
Ik stond te blozen, was zo blij
Jij moest er haast van lachen
Anne

Anne
It's not a perfect world
But you can give a little bit more colour
Anne
You have a long way still ahead
But don't you worry
It's too early for concerns
Time enough

Anne
De wereld is niet mooi
Maar jij kan haar een beetje mooier kleuren
Anne
Je hebt nog heel wat voor de boeg
Maak je geen zorgen
Daarvoor is het nog te vroeg
Veel te vroeg

The arrows of the clock go fast
You'll notice later on
Anne
From the potty to the loo
Is one, two, hop go on
Anne

De wijzers van de klok gaan snel
Dat merk je later wel
Anne
Van de pot naar de wc
Gaat een, twee, huppekee
Anne

You just unpacked your humming top
And already are a year older
And before I say "good day"
On your moped you take off
Anne

Je hebt net je bromtol uitgepakt
Of bent alweer een jaar ouder
Voor ik "goeiemorgen" zeg
Ben jij op je brommer weg
Anne

So many lovely babies there
But not as sweet as you
Anne
Only the eyes of your mother
Were just as sweet as you
Anne

Er waren mooie baby's bij
Maar niet zo lief als jij
Anne
Alleen de ogen van je moeder
Waren net zo mooi als jij
Anne
