when you cry

Now that you live here, you’ll have to study the depths of Dutch Culture. Luckily you stumbled upon me so I can guide you through it. Here we have Andre van Duin who molests an elderly lady with his tears. Never mind the cranky translation of the song – in Dutch it’s worse!

WHEN YOU CRY

When you go hunting
and the rabbits are shooting back
When you’re cut yourself
while shaving your back
or when you have been dancing
on a mine that you don’t see
then you have a reason
a reason to cry of misery.

Shout it from the roof tops
don’t bother about others
when you cry.
Let those tears flow freely
let that rain shower come
when you cry.

Because when you can cry nicely
then I’ll cry along with you
and when we cry together
we simply cry for two

and when we cry together

THE MISSING PIECE

There’s a piece cut out from the beginning. Of course you’ll have to memorise that as well
When your girlfriend
writes a letter
with a bomb
when your gold fish drowned
in his bowl
When you look at your wife
and you suddenly get unwell
When you yourself are sitting down
on your new hat.
