Saint Nicholas Song
You can ask your mentor or local Dutch friend to teach
you the melody and to practise the following Saint Nicholas song, which has
been freely translated from Dutch into English:
'Look there comes the steamer from Spain t'us again.
It brings us Saint Nicholas he stands in our rain.
How's hopping his little horse on deck up and down,
and flags are just fluttering as the steamship's comes down.
His servant is laughing and shouting to us:
'Who is sweet will get goodies, who is naughty will not.'
Oh dearest Saint Nicholas do you come to me?
And don't pass by silently and leave me with the tea.
(The original title is: 'Zie ginds komt de stoomboot')
