Children's Song
(English)

Hoofd, schouders, knie en teen, knie en teen
Hoofd, schouders, knie en teen, knie en teen
Oren, ogen, puntje van je neus
Hoofd, schouders, knie en teen, knie en teen

Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes,
Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes,
And eyes and ears and mouth and nose,
Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes.

Notes

Literal English Translation

Head, shoulders, knee and toe, knee and toe,
Head, shoulders, knee and toe, knee and toe,
Ears, eyes, little point* of your nose
Head, shoulders, knee and toe, knee and toe.

*"Puntje" is the word used in the song. "Punt" means "point" and "je" at the end of a word in Dutch is the diminutive form.
