(Belgian Kids Song)

Sung to the tune to "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star"

Altijd Is Kortjakje Ziek
Kortjakje Is Always Ill
Children's Song
(Dutch)
Children's Song
(English)

Altijd is Kortjakje ziek
Midden in de week
maar 's Zondags niet
's Zondags gaat zij naar de kerk
met haar boek vol zilverwerk
Altijd is Kortjakje ziek
Midden in de week
maar 's zondags niet.

Kortjakje is always ill,
In the middle of the week,
But not on Sundays.
On Sunday she goes to church,
With a book full of silver,
Kortjakje is always ill,
In the middle of the week,
But not on Sundays.
