Vader Jacob 2
(Dutch Kids Song)

Here's Netherland's version of Frère Jacques. We have two versions of this song. This one here uses the old-fashioned word "gij" instead of "jig".

Vader Jacob,
Vader Jacob,
Slaapt gij nog?
Slaapt gij nog?
Alle klokken luiden,
Alle klokken luiden.
Bim bam bom.
Bim bam bom.

Father Jacob,
Father Jacob,
Are you still sleeping?
Are you still sleeping?
All the bells are ringing
All the bells are ringing.
Bim bam bom.
Bim bam bom.
