No. 7 - Song - Paap and Chorus

MIDI File

Paap: Our enemies may choose to scorn
The land that we control,
And yet her name, her fate and fame
We hold with heart and soul;
Though small in size our Fatherland,
Though peace is ours today,
The hour may come when the roll of drum
Shall call us to the fray!
And who shall disobey?
We're soldiers of the Netherlands,
Chorus: Of the Netherlands,
Paap: Of the Netherlands,
We guard Brabant and North Friesland,
And all that lies between,
So soldiers of the Netherlands,
Chorus: Of the Netherlands,
Paap: Of the Netherlands,
Our pride has been to defend our Queen,
Here's a health to our fair young Queen.
Chorus: We're soldiers of the Netherlands,
Of the Netherlands, of the Netherlands,
We guard Brabant and North Friesland,
And all that lies between,
So soldiers of the Netherlands,
Of the Netherlands, of the Netherlands,
Our pride has been to defend our Queen,
Here's a health to our fair young Queen.
   
Paap: Our ancestors their strength have shown
Upon the mighty seas;
Their enemies they met alone,
And routed them with ease.
To us remains the duty, then,
Obeying each command,
To prove ourselves true fearless men
Who give their heart and hand
To fight and win on land.
We're soldiers of the Netherlands,
Chorus: Of the Netherlands,
Paap: Of the Netherlands,
We guard Brabant and North Friesland,
And all that lies between,
So soldiers of the Netherlands,
Chorus: Of the Netherlands,
Paap: Of the Netherlands,
Our pride has been to defend our Queen,
Here's a health to our fair young Queen.
Chorus: We're soldiers of the Netherlands,
Of the Netherlands, of the Netherlands,
We guard Brabant and North Friesland,
And all that lies between,
So soldiers of the Netherlands,
Of the Netherlands, of the Netherlands,
Our pride has been to defend our Queen,
Here's a health to our fair young Queen.
