Dutch song Brigitte Kaandorp - Leven zonder angst
with lyrics, music, video and English translation songtext


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

Yesterday night, I couldn't sleep at all
I tossed and turned in bed the whole night long
Tried to count sheep, over hundred thousand
But they lingered, stood still
And they all looked at me
And I shouted: "Now, move out of way"

Gisterennacht, ik kon maar niet slapen
Ik lag te woelen in mijn ledikant
'k Telde honderdduizend witte schapen
En die bleven maar staan
En die keken me aan
En ik riep: "Ga nou eens aan de kant"

I want to live without fear
Want to burn but without blisters
I want money without saving
And a party not prepared
I want boozing, no hangover
And a wristwatch without later
Dancing without getting tired

Ik wil leven zonder angst
Ik wil branden zonder blaren
Ik wil geld zonder te sparen
Ik wil feest zonder gedoe
Ik wil zuipen zonder kater
Een horloge zonder later
Ik wil dansen zonder moe

I want rain, but no raincoat
And to sail without an anchor
Want to smoke and not get cancer
A trapeze flip without net
I want to get knowledge without reading
Always finding without searching
I want to sleep without bed

Ik wil regen zonder jas
Ik wil varen zonder anker
Ik wil roken zonder kanker
'k Wil een salto zonder net
Ik wil alles weten zonder boeken
Alles vinden zonder zoeken
Ik wil slapen zonder bed

You said to me: "Well, you sound just insane now
You don't live in a palace all for free
In the sweat of thy face shalt thou earn and eat your bread"
And I looked just perplexed
Wanted to hit you hard
'Cause I had to agree, you were right

Jij zei vannacht: "Joh, je bent niet goed lekker
Je woont niet zomaar gratis op Soestdijk
In het zweet uws aanschijns zult gij uw brood verdienen"
En toen keek ik je aan
En toen wou ik je slaan
Want je had zo vervelend gelijk

But I want love without an end
And make love without a worry
From the evening till the morning
I want lovers without count
Want to go on, never stopping
To be let in without knocking
And no physical decline

Maar ik wil liefde zonder eind
Ik wil vrijen zonder zorgen
Van de avond tot de morgen
Ik wil mannen zonder tal
Ik wil doorgaan zonder stoppen
Ik wil binnen zonder kloppen
En een lijf zonder verval

Want to devour without fat
Take a rest so pleasurable
Never peels and never boxes
I want pigs, no swine fever
I want a child without deliver
And without obstacles or troubles
Swimming without life jacket

Ik wil vreten zonder dik
Ik wil aangenaam verpozen
Zonder schillen, zonder dozen
Ik wil varkens zonder pest
Ik wil een kind zonder te baren
En zonder praktische bezwaren
Ik wil zwemmen zonder vest

Want to travel without goal
I want sailing without harbour
Want a canal without digging
I want fishing without catch
I want old without decaying
I want death without the dying
I want to live, I want to live
I want to live without fear

Ik wil reizen zonder doel
Ik wil zeilen zonder haven
'k Wil een gracht zonder te graven
Ik wil vissen zonder vangst
Ik wil oud zonder bederven
Ik wil dood zonder te sterven
Ik wil leven, ik wil leven
Ik wil leven zonder angst

Brigitte Kaandorp (1962) is a Dutch cabaret artist. In the Netherlands, 'cabaret' is a kind of theatre in which someone, usually in a one man/woman show, tells a story or series of anecdotes (personal or critical about politics/society or just hilarious) with jokes and songs.

In 1983 Brigitte Kaandorp won the Camerettenfestival in Delft. Her shows were directly a big success. She made over ten shows and released over 15 cd's.
