On a Friday in the pub, somewhere in Amsterdam
An old wise man with a glass was sitting at the bar
He said that he just had a few days to live
Life is for living, so grab it, and be right on your way

Op een vrijdag in de kroeg, ergens in Amsterdam
Zat aan de bar met een glas een oude wijze man
Hij zei dat die nog maar een paar dagen had
Dus pak het leven, pak alles en ga er mee op pad

And he said:
Live as if it's your very last day
Live like there won't be another day
Live as if it's never finished
And live, grab everything you can

En hij zei:
Leef alsof het je laatste dag is
Leef alsof de morgen niet bestaat
Leef alsof het nooit echt af is
En leef, pak alles wat je kan

He'd been caught up in his work and worked hard all his life
He had earned a fortune, but never really lived
His wife had left him she ran off with another man
There had been some laughter, but always much more tears

Hij vertelde dat-ie zich had gewerkt in het zweet
Geld verdiend als water, maar nooit echt had geleefd
Z'n vrouw was bij hem weg, voor een ander ingeruild
Af en toe gelachen, maar veel te veel gehuild

André Hazes jr. (1994) is a Dutch singer. His first two albums he recorded together with his sister Roxeanne Hazes (2010 and 2012). Since 2013 he performs every year at the Holland sings Hazes/Holland zingt Hazes sing-along concerts (with songs of his famous father, André Hazes sr.).

In 2014 he was a participant in the tv-show The best singers/De beste zangers. He scored a big number 1-hit with one of the songs he sang in that show, 'I live my own life'/'Ik leef mijn eigen leven'. After that he released three solo albums (2016, 2017 and 2018), with hits like 'I live my life to the fullest'/'Ik haal alles uit het leven' (2017) and 'Hey, old man'/'Hé, ouwe' (2016).

Above song 'Live'/'Leef' (2015) was awarded with three Buma NL Awards: Best Single, Best Album and Most Played in Pubs. The next year it was immediately voted into the Top 2000 (traditionally broadcasted on the radio the last week of the year).

In the video the 'old man' is played by Dutch actor Bartho Braat (1950), well known for his leading role in the popular Dutch soap opera (since 1990) Good times, bad times/Goede tijden, slechte tijden.

André Hazes jr. has a relationship with Monique (who is 16 year his senior). They had a real life soap on television in 2017 and 2019. They have a son, also called André (2016) - so in fact: André III.
