Notes

Here's a slightly different version of Broeder Jacob that was sent to us by Lyndsey Haezebrouck:

Broeder Jacob
(Dutch)

Broeder Jacob, Broeder Jacob,
Slaapt gij nog? Slaapt gij nog?
Alle klokken luiden, alle klokken luiden,
Bim bam bom, bim bam bom.
(Sound of bells)

Brother Jacob
(English Translation)

Brother* Jacob, Brother Jacob,
Are you still sleeping? Are you still sleeping?
The bells are sounding, the bells are sounding,
Bim bam bom, bim bam bom.
(Sound of bells)

*In the sense of a monk.
