Traditional song, trancribed by Siri Randem 2012, as sung

I am a pretty little Dutch girl,
as pretty as I can be.
And all the boys in the neighborhood
are crazy over me.

My boyfriend's name is Mellow,
he comes from the land of Jello,
With pickles for his toes and a cherry for his nose,
And that's the way my story goes.

With a boyfriend from Cincinatti



I am a pretty little Dutch girl,
I live across the street,
And all the boys
Around the block
Are crazy over me.

I have a boyfriend, Patty.
He comes from Cincinatti,
With forty-eight toes
And a pickle on his nose
And this is the way my story goes

One day as I was walking,
I heard my boyfriend talking,
To a little girl
With a strawberry curl
And this is what he said to her,

I L-O-V-E, love you,
I K-I-S-S, kiss you,
I K-I-S-S, kiss you
On your F-A-C-E, face.


Left the USA



I am a little Dutch girl
I lived across the sea
I fell in love
with a rubba-dub-dub
And left the USA

He took me to his castle
And there he made me stay
First he gave me peaches,
and then he gave me pears
And then he gave me 50 cents
and kicked me down the stairs.


As a dance

I am a little Dutch Boy, a Dutch Boy a Dutch Boy
I am a little Dutch Boy, a Dutch Boy I am

Oh go away I hate you, I hate you I hate you
Oh go away I hate You I hate you I do.

Boy: (dancing forward and back)
Oh why do you a hate me, a hate me a hate me
Oh why do you a hate me, a hate me you do?

Girl: (dancing forward and back)
Because you stole my ribbon, my ribbon, my ribbon
Because you stole my ribbon, my ribbon, you stole.

Boy: (dancing forward and back)
Oh please will you forgive me, forgive me, forgive me
forgive me please do.

Girl: (dancing forward and back)
Oh Yes I will forgive you, forgie you, forgive you
oh yes I will forgive you, forgive you I will.

(they both dance forward and hug)
