Klap eens in je handjes
Clap Your Little Hands
Children's Song
(Dutch)
Children's Song
(English)

Klap eens in je handjes,
blij, blij, blij.
Op je lieve/boze bolletje,
allebei.

Handjes in de hoogte,
Handjes in je zij.

Zo varen de scheepjes voorbij.
Zo varen de scheepjes voorbij.

Clap your (little) hands,
Happy, happy, happy.
On your sweet/angry head,
Both of them.

(Little) Hands in the air,
(Little) Hands on your hips.

That's the way the (little) ships sail away.
That's the way the (little) ships sail away.
 
Listen
"I'm sending you two files of 'Klap eens in je handjes', because there are two versions on your site: so the 1st mp3 for 'Klap Eens In Je Handjes' is where it's written as 'op je BOZE bolletje' (meaning angry/upset) and the 2nd mp3 for 'Klap Eens In Je Handjes' is with 'op je LIEVE bolletje' (meaning sweet/nice)."
