K3 - A Fantastic Way to Learn Dutch

Post by Tom » Sat Jun 02, 2007 3:01 pm

I can't praise K3 enough.

I love their songs.  I have nearly every one of their CDs and DVDs.

They also have made films and have been in plays and productions from Studio 100.

Everything that Studio 100 produces is a hit in my book.

You can't go wrong with something that they offer.  If you want to learn and have some fun at the same time, this is certainly a way to go.  You won't be bored!

Another hit from K3.  You can find it in their film K3 en het magische Medallion



Lyrics are here:
http://www.studio100fan.eu/index.php/Su ... _K3_(lied)

Ik vlieg als een kruisraket door de lucht
I fly thru the air like a cruisemissle

pijlsnel alle boosdoeners slaan op de vlucht
fast as an arrow all the bad guys hit the bricks (run away)

keicool iedereen wijst naar boven en zucht
Real cool everyone points in the sky and sighs

ik hou niet van vechten en niet van geweld
I don't like fighting or violence

maar dat is nu eenmaal het lot van een held
but that is just how it goes being a hero

jij gilt en ik kom je te hulp gesneld
You scream and I rush to your help

als er iemand jou in de kou laat staan
If ever someone leaves you standing in the cold

wees niet bang meer want ik kom eraan
Don't be frightened anymore, cause I'm on the way

refrein
I'm your superhero

ik sta aan je zij
I'm on your side

I'm your superhero

jij gelooft in mij
You believe in me

niks of niemand die jou en mij kan verslaan
nothing or noone can beat you and me

yeah yeah yeah


I'm your superhero

ik sta aan je zij
I'm on your side

I'm your superhero

jij gelooft in mij
You believe in me

samen kunnen wij alle boosdoeners aan
together we can take all the bad guys on


ja we komen er aan!
Yeah, here we come!

ik spring over daken
I jump over roofs

ik ren over straat
I run in the street

ik rij in een wagen die supersnel gaat
I drive in a car that goes superfast

ik leef
I live

iedereen die me ziet, kijkt me na
everyone that sees me, checks me out

als er iemand jou in de kou laat staan
If ever someone leaves you standing in the cold

wees niet bang meer want ik kom eraan
Don't be frightened anymore, cause I'm on the way

refrein

nanana...

als er iemand jou in de kou laat staan
If ever someone leaves you standing in the cold


wees niet bang meer want ik kom eraan
Don't be frightened anymore, cause I'm on the way

refrein

superhelden we komen eraan
superheros, were on our way

superhelden we kunnen het aan
superheros, we kan do it

superhelden we komen eraan
superheros, were on our way

superhelden we kunnen het aan
superheros, we kan do it

superhelden we komen eraan
superheros, were on our way

superhelden we kunnen het aan
superheros, we kan do it

superhelden we komen eraan
superheros, were on our way

superhelden we kunnen het aan
superheros, we kan do it

I'm your superhero

ik sta aan je zij
I'm on your side

I'm your superhero

jij gelooft in mij
You believe in me

samen kunnen wij alle boosdoeners aan
together we can take all the bad guys on

ja we komen er aan!
Yeah, here we come!

Mijn dochter houdt ook van K3. Ze heeft een DVD met hun verschillende liedjes en ook een sprookjefilm met ze. Vooral vindt ze het lied met de volgende tekst erg leuk: "sturen we mama's en papa's allemaal we naar school toe en kinderen blijven thuis..." :P

The http://www.studio100fan.eu website has been rearranged so that the old links are broken.

The index to the K3 lyrics is now at http://www.studio100fan.eu/index.php/Songteksten_van_K3 so it should be easy to find all the lyrics you want. "De Revolutie" has finally been posted, too (under R).

Not everything is there, though. For the texts of the songs in De 3 Biggetjes musical, look here:
http://www.studio100fan.eu/index.php/Ca ... ongteksten
Some of these songs are hysterical, I think: Wij zin bang and Wij zijn Gibbertjes are my favorites.
And Daisy Thys is fabulous as Mama Big / Big Mama [note the 2-talige woordspeling]
The wolf Baltimor and his 3 sons are just as much the stars as Knirri, Knarri en Knorri.
I don't think Free Souffriau actually sings anything in the musical, but she "dances with wolves", as the phrase goes.

Here you can find the summary of the musical:
http://www.studio100fan.eu/index.php/Mu ... %282007%29

I echo Tom's high opinion of K3. Karen Damen has put up lots of Studio 100 videos of K3 on youtube (search for user karendamen). Another wonderful group is Laïs, also with videos on youtube.

Enjoy them all! Kind regards, John Stewart

Hoi,
Wat betekent boosdoener in die zin?
Iets als boosdoener zien = als oorzaak van een ziekte van iets?

Vandaag wordt de vrije markt logica als boosdoener aangewezen.
Het marktfundamentalisme is dus de oorzaak van de ziekte. Een slecht iets.

Groeten

Hoi Amin,

Een boosdoener is iemand die iets slechts gedaan had.

Hij doet kwaad. Soms is hij een crimineel.

Marketfundamentalisme of iets is geen mens maar soms beschouwen we een "iets" alsof het een mens was.

It is the same in English.

Market fundamentalism is the culprit. But normally "the culprit" is human and can do something bad on purpose.
When it is used for an "it", it usually means that "it" is the cause of the bad thing or result.

I hope this helps a bit.

Basically the interpretations in your examples are correct. I am just saying the same thing you said in other words.
Groetjes
Tom
