Look there, there on the stair!

Postby seans_potato_business » Sun Sep 28, 2008 7:00 pm

In English we have a song:

"Look there, there on the stair!
Where on the stair?
Right there!
A little mouse with clogs on
Well I declare!
Going clip-clippety-clop on the stair"

I know for sure, that there's a Dutch version, but I can't find it. It was on the radio. A little help?
Lekker op tafel...

Wat een leuk liedje! :D

Sinds gisteren zit het in mijn hoofd: :?
"Wat is het toch fijn een muis in een molen in Mokum te zijn!"

Groetjes,
Olichka
