Holland: everyone knows best
The Dutch are down-to-earth
All together on the beach
Dutch rusks at breakfast-time

Land van duizend meningen
Het land van nuchterheid
Met z'n allen op het strand
Beschuit bij het ontbijt


picture flag round netherlands icon of dutch song translated English translation

The country where you only show
Emotions when we're winning
Then everyone is set on fire
Goes out in orange T-shirts

Het land waar niemand zich laat gaan
Behalve als we winnen
Dan breekt acuut de passie los
Dan blijft geen mens meer binnen


picture flag balloons netherlands icon of dutch song translated English translation
This country dislikes cavilling
No uniform is sacred
A son will call his father 'Piet'
A bike is swiped in no time

Het land, wars van betutteling
Geen uniform is heilig
Een zoon die noemt zijn vader ‘Piet’
Een fiets staat nergens veilig

15 Million people
On this tiny fragment of the worldglobe
Give them respect and dignity
And don't put rules down for them

15 Miljoen mensen
Op dat hele kleine stukje aarde
Die schrijf je niet de wetten voor
Die laat je in hun waarde

15 Million people
On this tiny fragment of the worldglobe
Give them respect and dignity
Don't shackle them, don't bind them

15 Miljoen mensen
Op dat hele kleine stukje aarde
Die moeten niet het keurslijf in
Die laat je in hun waarde

The land so full of protest groups
No boss is a superior
The curtains open, all night long
Just bread and cheese at lunch time

Het land vol groepen van protest
Geen chef die echt de baas is
Gordijnen altijd open zijn
De lunch een broodje kaas is


picture flag heart netherlands icon of dutch song translated English translation

The country known for tolerance
But just not for your neighbour
We wonder, but we never ask
How can he afford to live there

Het land vol van verdraagzaamheid
Alleen niet voor de buurman
De grote vraag die blijft altijd
Waar betaalt hij nou zijn huur van


picture flag round netherlands icon of dutch song translated English translation

And taking care for everyone
This country saves from gutter
With fast foods sold from automats
No sandwich without filling

Het land dat zorgt voor iedereen
Geen hond die van een goot weet
Met nasiballen in de muur
En niemand die droog brood eet

Fluitsma & Van Tijn is a duo of music producers. They are Jochem Fluitsma (1958), who studied guitar at the Conservatory of Amsterdam, and Eric van Tijn (1956), who studied piano at the Conservatory.

Together they wrote many songs for a big number of Dutch artists, like The Scene, Status Quo, Mai Tai, Henk Westbroek, Guus Meeuwis, Loïs Lane, De Kast, Willeke Alberti, the Dolly Dots, Hind en Mathilde Santing.

In 1996 they scored, unexpectedly, a number 1 hit with a song they just wrote for a tv-commercial for a financial bank: above song '15 Million people'/'15 Miljoen mensen'. The song (in the commercial just about a minute long) became so populair, that they released it as a single, singing it themselves.

Eric van Tijn also was member of the jury in Idols and X factor. Jochem Fluitsma took care of the life music in Idols.

Last little fact: since 2016 the Netherlands have over 17 million inhabitants.
