Wees Welkom, Bienvenido,
This children's song has passed me
several times in my life: At first when I was with my grandmother's house and I played with my cousins this play and learned the text while playing.
The second time when I was in the training's school for teachers and I learned how to play and learn the children: the plays we learned from our parents...
The third time was actually as a teacher of the infant school and had a lots of pleasure with my kids in the class...We played that play regularly...
The fourth time was with family they sang a children's song
but not in a pleasant way.............
This fifth time I read it in a book which was fallen open on the ground in the room of our house ....on page 274 Kennen en vertrouwen Handreiking van de prediking van de Heidelbergse Catechismus. ( Dr. W. Verboom gaf hierin ook zijn bijdrage). And by the grace of God I translated this play into a different setting It goes like this:
White people Black people
Who wants to go to Engelland (Heaven)
Engelland is closed
The key is broken
Is there no man who can repaire
YES It's the sun of the carpenter
Don't worry 2x
The last will be first
