Kent gij Jan de mosselman,
de mosselman, de mosselman?
Kent gij Jan de mosselman,
de man van Scheveningen?

Ja ik ken de mosselman,
de mosselman, de mosselman!
Ja ik ken de mosselman,
de man van Scheveningen!

Samen kennen we de mosselman,
de mosselman, de mosselman,
Sammen kennen we de mosselman,
de man van Scheveningen.

Do you know John the mussel man,
The mussel man, the mussel man?
Do you know John the mussel man,
The man from Scheveningen?

Yes I know the mussel man,
The mussel man, the mussel man!
Yes I know the mussel man,
The man from Scheveningen!

Together we know the mussel man,
The mussel man, the mussel man!
Together we know the mussel man,
The man from Scheveningen!
