Children's Song
(English)

Drie maal drie is negen,
ieder zingt zijn eigen lied,
Drie maal drie is negen,
en ..... zingt een lied.

'eeeen ..... moet een liedje zingen
troelala troelala
..... moet een liedje zingen
troelalalala hoi!'

Three times three makes nine,
Everyone sings their own song,
Three times three makes nine,
And ..... sings a song.

'and ..... has to sing a song
troolala troolala
..... has to sing a song
troolalalala hoi!'
 
Listen
In the recording, the name "Lisa" was put in wherever there's a ....... in the lyrics.

Game Instructions

This is a game where children sit in a group and sing this song together. One of the children's names is chosen to go on the dots and he or she has to sing a song. If they fail to think of a song, the others will start the song "Hij is met zijn liedje in het water gevallen", which is quite embarrassing:

Hij is met zijn liedje in het water gevallen,
Falderalderiere, falderalderare,
Hij is met zijn liedje in het water gevallen,
Falderaldera.

English Translation

With his song he has fallen into the water,
Falderalderiere, falderalderare,
With his song he has fallen into the water,
Falderaldera.
