Double Dutch

I want to say hello to you
But I don’t know how to do
Deutsch is not hetzelfde als Dutch
And that is confusing mij so very much

Wenn ich schreibe, das ich bleibe
Can I say, that I will stay
Aber in Holland soll ich dann staan
And iF I go, dann kann ich gaan

It all is so verschrikkelijk complicated für mich
Then English and American, sind auch noch unterschiedlich
Zo vaak fehlen mir de woorden
And can I again een taal vermoorden

You see the problem, what shall I do
I better shut up, and halte meine Klappe toe
Oe is dutch, and bedeuted Uh
But the English do say oooh

And when I want Käse, dan wil ik kaas
Did you aver try to translate sinterklaas?
Yes, I am going slightly mad
And mad in Germanan is pronounced as Mett

Mett is een gehaktbal, pretty much
It is so complicated, to be double dutch
Even when I want my drink
I have to think

Because a bear is not a bear
What they mean to say is bier
Now that sounds easy, for all of us
I drink to that, I love being Double Dutch

When the light is young
When we are feeling strong
Then walk with me

When the grass is green
And the leaves drop shadows between
Then walk with me

When you are feeling cold
When you are feeling old
Then walk with me

When you think you are alone
When your heart is not from stone
You can walk with me

Leave your footprints next to me
Open up for the power
Hug a tree

When white meets black
And black greets white
Both enjoying the beutiful weather

When someone tells you are beautiful
And you reply with, so are you
Then nothing really matters

When differences fade away
And you can be yourself, unique
Then your harmony will speak

When it shimmers, after a sunny day
And we slowly prepare for the night
Remember, that the darkness will fade away
Our dreams will bring us
back to the light

The winter was strong
Long, we did long for spring
Mother nature made her own plan
Not because she has to, but because she can

Sunshine came, unexpected
Nature could not neglecl it
Flowers exploded
The darkness eroded

Hello sunshine, please be mine
Breathing spring, blossoms swollen
Sneezing loud, thanks to the pollen
Enjoying the light with a smile
It has been a while

Now the blossoms touch the water
Spring seems to have jumped into summerly heat
Reflections become memories for later
Who knows, where the water may lead

—–

Blüten fliessen in den Fluss
Weil das Leben weitergehen muss
Ich schaue ins blaue herein
Geniesse den milden Sonnenschein

Die Blätter sind noch so grün
Das Wasser ist schon so hell
Erinnerungen an das Jetzt
Verlieren wir nicht so schnell

It’s your turn
Make a move, don’t run
What step will you take
Is it sea, or is it lake
Move it
 
It’s your turn
When you can’t take the black
Then you should play the white
Anticipate
Take care that you won’t burn
 
Every move you make
Every breath you take
They will be watching you
Make your move,make them play
You can do it,
 
It’s your turn
Take a risk
Choose it
Don’t be afraid to loose it
Because, only when you use it
Life will give you the chance
To glance
 
Play well
I will be next to you
Yes, we can do
More then ever
it is your turn
