OneDayLove – The Netherlands 1996 – Maxine & Franklin Brown – De eerste keer

Hello dear readers of Eurovision Ireland!

Today we continue with our exciting series: One Day Love!

Each week we celebrate one song from Eurovision History. Here, you can find facts like: year, country, artist, title of the song, lyrics (translations when the song is in another language other than English), video, points and placement in the semi-final, final or even national final (if the song only performed at that stage of the competition).

This week we have a special guest for our One Day Love, and it comes this time from The Netherlands.

Year: 1996

Country: The Netherlands

Artist: Maxine & Franklin Brown

Title: De eerste keer

Lyrics:

De eerste keerThe first time
Nana nana nana…Nana nana nana…
Nana nana nana…Nana nana nana…
Nanana nanana nanana…Nanana nanana nanana…
Nana nana…Nana nana…
  
‘k Was stom verbaasd toen je me beldeI was utter surprised when you called me
Na zo’n lange tijdAfter such a long time
M’n hart sloeg plotseling heel even overMy heart suddenly skipped a beat
  
Oh, en jij klonk nog hetzelfdeOh, and you sounded still the same
En het meisje in mijAnd the girl within me
Bracht zomaar weer ‘t onderste bovenBrought the undermost up, just like that
  
Oh, wat is ‘t lang geledenOh, it’s so long ago
Lang geledenLong ago
Lang geledenLong ago
  
‘t Was als de eerste keerIt was like the first time
Het klikte zomaar weerWe hit it off immediately
De tijd stond even stilTime stood still for a moment
Ik dacht weer: “Ja, ik wil”I thought again: “Yes, I do”
  
‘t Was als de eerste keerIt was like the first time
Het klikte zomaar weerWe hit it off immediately
De tijd stond even stilTime stood still for a moment
Ik dacht weer: “Ja, ik wil”I thought again: “Yes, I do”
“Wel wat met jou”“Want something with you”
  
Hé, ik vond je toen te gekHey, back then I thought you were great
En was stapel op jouI was madly in love with you
Heel macho en overal tegenVery macho and against everything
  
Oh, en wat je nooit geweten hebtOh, and what you never knew
Ik hield veel van jouI loved you very much
Maar eigenlijk was ik toen heel verlegenBut actually I was very shy then
  
Oh, wat is ‘t lang geledenOh, it’s so long ago
Lang geledenLong ago
Lang geledenLong ago
  
‘t Was als de eerste keerIt was like the first time
Het klikte zomaar weerWe hit it off immediately
De tijd stond even stilTime stood still for a moment
Ik dacht weer: ja, ik wilI thought again: yes, I do
  
‘t Was als de eerste keerIt was like the first time
Het klikte zomaar weerWe hit it off immediately
De tijd stond even stilTime stood still for a moment
Ik dacht weer: ja, ik wilI thought again: yes, I do
Wel watWant something
  
Waar spreken we af en zien we elkaar snel weer?Where shall we meet and see each other again soon?
Kom, we pikken het weer op zoals de eerste keerCome on, we’ll pick it up just like the first time
Whoa, yeahWhoa, yeah
  
‘t Was als de eerste keerIt was like the first time
Het klikte zomaar weerWe hit it off immediately
De tijd stond even stilTime stood still for a moment
Ik dacht weer: ja, ik wilI thought again: yes, I do
  
‘t Was als de eerste keerIt was like the first time
Het klikte zomaar weerWe hit it off immediately
De tijd stond even stilTime stood still for a moment
Ik dacht weer: ja, ik wilI thought again: yes, I do
  
Zoals de eerste keerLike the first time
