I sing you, I refrain you
I sherry and I wine you
I play you and I music you
I Rembrandt and I Brueghel you

Ik zing je, ik refrein je
Ik sherry je, ik wijn je
Ik cello je en ik vleugel je
Ik Rembrandt en ik Brueghel je

I coffee and I tea you
I beach you and I sea you
I spell you and I read through you
I mother and I father you

Ik koffie en ik thee je
Ik strand je en ik zee je
Ik spel je en ik blader je
Ik moeder en ik vader je

But I would like to ask you something
It's much more than just a kiss
I would like to ask you something
Could you do something please for me

Maar zou ik jou iets mogen vragen
't Gaat veel verder dan een zoen
Zou ik jou wat mogen vragen
Zou je voor mij wat willen doen

Springtime me, summer me
September me and winter me
For I love you everlasting, my love
Morning me, midday me
Evening me and night me
In other words
Stay with me, if you please

Lente me, zomer me
September me en winter me
Want ik heb je onophoudelijk lief
Morgen me, middag me
Avond me en nacht me
Met andere woorden
Blijf bij me, alsjeblieft

I see in your eyes again the blossom of the apple tree
And your summers I can feel here on my cheek
I see again the leaves are falling on our tender dream
And the christmas lights I see them once more shimmer on the wall

Ik zie in je ogen weer de bloemsem van de appelboom
En je zomers kan ik voelen op mijn wang
Ik zie de bladeren weer vallen op onze lieve droom
En de lichtjes van de kerstmis zie ik weer bewegen op het behang

Want ik heb je onophoudelijk lief
Morgen me, middag me

Toon Hermans (1916-2000) was a Dutch cabaret artist, singer, painter and poet. He is considered to be one of the 'Great Three' of Dutch cabaret (with Wim Sonneveld and Wim Kan). In the Netherlands, 'cabaret' is a kind of theatre in which someone, usually in a one man show, tells a story or series of anecdotes (personal or critical about politics/society or just hilarious) with jokes and songs.

Toon Hermans was extremely beloved by the public and made very, very successful oneman-shows. In the biggest theatre in Amsterdam, Carré, his shows sold out for over three months in a row (where for other artists three evenings in Amsterdam were normal). He was known for his love for funny nonsense, linguistic feeling and wordplays, his hilarious characters, his funny faces and small poetry. Recurring themes were the importance of love and his love for life.

Well-known songs are 'Méditerranée' (1957); 'Like a balloon'/'Als een ballonnetje' (1958); 'Notte Belle Margarinetta' (1958); 'Twenty-seven roses'/'Vierentwintig rozen' (1966); 'This is a place to love'/'Dit is een plek om lief te hebben' (1967); and 'The apples on the table cloth'/'De appels op de tafelsprei' (1972). He also wrote love songs for his wife and love of his life Rietje (who died in 1990), like 'Springtime me'/'Lente me' (1993); and 'If love didn't exist'/'Als de liefde niet bestond' (2000).

He had to end his one man show of 1993 abruptly, because the song 'Springtime me', for his recently deceased wife Rietje, made him too emotional and he couldn't sing it anymore.

The linked songs are also translated and included on this website.
