Lente in die Boland

Lente in die Boland - which translates to "springtime in the boland". Boland is basically the region where I'm in right now, the Cape Winelands and Stellenbosch etc.

Koos Kombuis is a legendary folk singer in South Africa and his songs are widely known. I found this video on YouTube and I thought I could introduce you to his most popular song. The song is basically about having a good time in Stellenbosch and drinking a lot, like students tend to do. ;-) That's why this song is extremely popular very late at drunken parties.



Here's the lyrics... maybe this will also give you a better idea how afrikaans is like.


    Daar's 'n dorpie wat ek ken daar tussen die blou berge
    En die lower van die eike oor die straat
    Dis die land van Adam Tas en Simon van der Stel
    Waar die mense van Gauteng soos die Capies kan leer praat
    Dis daar waar ek gewot het, ek het daar leer skryf en lees
    Maar die meeste van die tyd was ek in 'n party gees
    Wie kan die werk verstaan, wie kan die drank weerstaan
    As die onderdorp jpou roep vir 'n groot, groot fees

    Koortjie:
    Dit was lente in die boland, in ons mees gesuipte jaar
    Daar was Tassenberg in elke glas, al die hormone het baljaar
    Stellenbosch was niemandsland, eksamens ook net om die draai
    Maar ons was jonk gewees en ons was dronk gewees
    Die hele lewe was 'n bring en braai

    In die Akker en Die Dros het ons oor naweke gedrink
    en vir vriende en mooi meisies hulle glase vol geskink
    Na die riviertjie by Die Laan het ons al steierend gegaan
    om te kafoefel en te vry in die lig van die maan
    Ek het haar daar ontmoet, sy was so oulik en so soet
    Die nooentjie van my drome, ja, dis waar
    Nou woon ons in 'n huisie, maar ek onthou nog daardie wysie
    Van die gejol en die gefuif van ons beste jaar

Scary! Sounds a bit like football songs only they don't have yodeling. Not here, anyway. But I can see how such vocal skills and interesting lyrics become even better after several pints :-)

Doctors may also prescribe Provigil for the treatment of spastic cerebral palsy, ParkinsonпїЅs disease, opiod induced sleepiness, myotonic dystrophy, chronic fatigue syndrome, as well as fibromyalgia. Most patients will not experience these side effects but those who do will usually find that they are self limiting or that they will cease when the medication is stopped.
