mannen met baarden
men with beards

Made for TMTA: Men with beards



Image from an old Hollywood library book (this is Tyrone Power Sr. in the Big Trail), written songtext "Kaap'ren varen" (an old Dutch traditional: Sailing the Cape, that has to be men with beards), dotted tape and staples.




Edited: i've always associated this song with the long journey around the Cape (south-Africa)... today I've learned it's all about pirates. Never paid enough attention to the text I guess... Kaap'ren (cape) and kaper (pirate) just sounds the same to me. Learn something everyday ;P

Dutch songtext
In fact the song is based on a Flemish poem: Musical original

  5. Nice work and a good eye for just the right image!

    And I really like the song. :-) I didn't know it was originally in Dutch. Just like "was sollen wir trinken" or "wat zullen we drinken" it seems to be one of the songs we share:
