Dutch song Herman van Veen - Hilversum 3
with lyrics, music, video and English translation songtext


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

Not long ago you still heard singing, whistling in the street
Every butcher's boy still had an opera at hand
The mason could be singing on the scaffolding
The whistling milkman poured a little water in the milk

Vroeger werd gezongen en gefloten in de straat
Had de slagersjongen nog een opera paraat
De metselaar kon zingend op de steiger staan
De melkboer lengde fluitend zijn melk een beetje aan

Radio 3 did not exist
But everyone had his own voice
From the scaffoldings sounded songs
About clowns or Jeruzalem

Hilversum III bestond nog niet
Maar ieder had zijn eigen stem
Op elke steiger klonk een lied
Van paljas of Jeruzalem

Vendors had their own invented aria's
'Bout sprat and herring or begonia's
In factories you heared from all around
Once more a song through the factory hall

Alle venters hadden eigen aria's
Voor sprot en haring, voor begonia's
Zelfs in fabrieken kwam van overal
Toch weer een liedje door de grote hal

In between the rattling of machineries
Sounded a nice choir of young girls sewing clothes
Dreaming 'bout a prince from far away
Who'd elope them to his castle in the air

Tussen het geratel van machines door
Klonk in de confectie een mooi meisjeskoor
Dromend van de prins van weet-ik-veel
Die ze zou ontvoeren naar zijn luchtkasteel

Willem Wilmink (1936-2003) was a poet, writer, translator, lyrics writer and singer. He translated several medieval texts and songs to nowadays Dutch, like 'Beatrice'/'Beatrijs' and 'Brandaan'. He wrote a dozen children's books and books about poetry for children; over 10 volumes poetry; and over 50 other books. He wrote songs for musicals, children's television series and shows, national teenagers choir Children for Children - and of course for his own theater shows and for other artists (like Herman van Veen, Wieteke van Dort, Joost Prinsen and Boudewijn de Groot). Many of his songs were provided with music by Harry Bannink, Frank Deiman and Marieke Moll.

Some of hist most well-known songs are: 'Put your fist on my fist'/'Deze vuist op deze vuist'; 'If it were the other way'/'Als het net even anders was gegaan'; 'Litte Freek'/'Frekie'; 'The old school'/'De oude school'; and 'Radio 3'/'Hilversum III'. His poems and songs are known for his easy to understand texts, his amazement about every-day life, often with melancholy.

Hilversum 3 (1965-1985) was a Dutch public radio station. It broadcasted from the city of Hilversum (North-Holland).
