malena Flemish/Dutch Folk Songs (53* d) Lyr Add: IK HOU VAN ALLE VROUWEN 09 Oct 98

Ik hou van alle vrouwen
I love all women
mijn hart is veel te groot
My heart is far too big
daar ben ik met geboren
so I was born
daar ga ik ook mee dood
and so Iīll die

Ik hou van elle vrouwen
I love all women
dat is en groot verdriet
thatīs a big problem
met een kan ik maar trouwen
I can just marry one
en daarom trouw ik niet
thatīs why I donīt marry

Ik hou van alle ogen
I love all those eyes
ik kijk er gaarne in
like looking into them
hoe meer ik word bedrogen
the more Iīm cheated
hoe meer ik ze bemin
the more I love them

Ik hou van heel het leven
I love all the life
het leven om een vrouw
the life around a woman
om ieder wat te geven
To give something to everyone
ben ik ze allen trouw
I`m true to all of them

I like this one, itīs from a record of RUM, Flemish folk band (of the 70`s?). If youīre REALLY into it, I can send you a tape and the text too, but Iīd have to copy the LP onto a tape first... You want something more modern (chanson/cabaret) in Dutch - then try Herman Van Veen - heīs great and he should be available in Britain.
Hope this helps you,
