Dutch song Stef Bos - Papa

picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

My eyes resemble your eyes
And I get your features 'round my mouth
I have been quick-tempered
You have been quick-tempered
But we found our inner peace and calmness
We are sitting side by side
And we hardly say a word
For everything you do
I have a habit that's the same
Daddy
I'm more and more like you

Ik heb dezelfde ogen
En ik krijg jouw trekken om mijn mond
Vroeger was ik driftig
Vroeger was jij driftig
Maar we hebben onze rust gevonden
En we zitten naast elkaar
En we zeggen niet zoveel
Voor alles wat jij doet
Heb ik hetzelfde ritueel
Papa
Ik lijk steeds meer op jou

My hands resemble your hands
And I get your wrinkles in my skin
You have your opinions
I have my opinions
And we're roaming in our daydreams
But we always end up home
You wanted to find truth
A truth you never discovered
I search it too
Always in vain
My whole life long
'Cause daddy
I'm more and more like you

Ik heb dezelfde handen
En ik krijg jouw rimpels in mijn huid
Jij hebt jouw ideeën
Ik heb mijn ideeën
En we zwerven in gedachten
Maar we komen altijd thuis
De waarheid die je zocht
En die je nooit hebt gevonden
Ik zoek haar ook
En tevergeefs
Zolang ik leef
Want papa
Ik lijk steeds meer op jou

In the past you were strict
And God, I sometimes hated you
But your words, they
Are lying on my lips now
And I'm talking
Just as you used to talk then
You know, I have a godless faith
Fall in love with every girl
Maybe I've become this person
And you don't approve at all
But daddy
I'm more and more like you

Vroeger kon je streng zijn
En God, ik heb je soms gehaat
Maar jouw woorden
Ze liggen op mijn lippen
En ik praat nu
Zoals jij vroeger praatte
Ik heb een goddeloos geloof
En ik hou van elke vrouw
En misschien ben ik geworden
Wat jij helemaal niet wou
Maar papa
Ik lijk steeds meer op jou


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

And you believe in God
So you will go to heaven
I don't believe at all
So we won't meet again after death
After death nevermore then
But daddy
I love you more and more

Jij gelooft in God
Dus jij gaat naar de hemel
En ik geloof in niks
Dus we komen elkaar na de dood
Na de dood nooit meer tegen
Maar papa
Ik hou steeds meer van jou

Oh, daddy
I love you more and more
Daddy

O, papa
Ik hou steeds meer van jou
Papa
Ik lijk steeds meer op jou

Stef Bos (1961) is a Dutch actor and singer. After the Theatre Academy he worked as an actor and lyricist for a few years, but then decided to write and sing his own music.

The song 'Daddy'/'Papa' (1991) from his first album became a big hit. The album became double platinum and he won both an Edison Music Award and a Golden Harp. He sang in theatres for years and released over 30 albums (his albums in Afrikaans included).

In the 1990's he started to travel through Africa, especially South-Africa. This influenced his music. In 2012 he married South-African artist Varenka Paschke. He won a South-African singer-songwriter award, due to his 15 years contribution to the South-African music.

Stef Bos wrote the song 'Daddy'/'Papa'(1991), after his parents told him his father (then 67) was seriously ill with cancer. The shock that he might lose his father, urged him to write the song in no time. Fortunately, his father got cured and lived to see all the success this song brought his son. He died 24 years later, in 2014, 91 years old.

Stef Bos continued to sing the song over the decades, but made several versions, because both he himself, his religious feelings and his (thoughts about his) relationship with his father changed over the years.
