For the Ladies: The best Romantic Afrikaans song – English words

(008274.77-E001840.93NAVRLOSUC20V)   

[I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to Afrikaans music. But I have some Afrikaans songs I listen to. However, the Afrikaans song I like the most is Kurt Darrens "Lekker Verjaar" (Happy Birthday). Some people who are knowledgeable about music think it's a simplistic tune. But personally, it's my personal favourite. I think it has extremely romantic words which will warm any woman's heart. I thought I'd share it so that non-English women can see the lyrics in English. Below is the English translation and also the original Afrikaans. There are many beautiful things that come from the European race, and this is one of them. Jan]

Every day we drove together
Every week you are still there for me
And every month I see a new side of you
A day changes in one second
In one minute the world turns around
With every hour the sky above me turns blue again
See you here see you there
Just want to say happy birthday
Like good wine you just get better every day
See you here see you there
I’m glad we know each other
And you have a nice birthday here in my heart
Thanks again for our time together
Thanks again let’s move on
Because every day just gets better with you
Listen to our favorite song again
Listen again and you will long
And do you hear me because I sing it with you
See you here see you there
Just want to say happy birthday
Like good wine you just get better every day
See you here see you there
I’m glad we know each other
And you have a nice birthday here in my heart
Enjoy your birthday
I hope you get your wishes
Enjoy your birthday
On your special day
Happy Birthday (Happy Birthday)
Because you deserve the best
Happy Birthday (Happy Birthday)
You know you make me laugh
See you here see you there
Just want to say happy birthday
Like good wine you just get better every day
See you here see you there
I’m glad we know each other
And you have a nice birthday here in my heart
See you here see you there
Just want to say happy birthday
Like good wine you just get better every day

The original Afrikaans:-

Elke dag het ons saam gery
Elke week is jy nog daar vir my
En elke maand sien ek ‘n nuwe kant van jou
‘n Dag verander in een sekond
In een minuut word die wêreld rond
Met elke uur raak die lug bo my weer blou
Sien jou hier sien jou daar
Wil net sê lekker verjaar
Soos goeie wyn raak jy elke dag net beter
Sien jou hier sien jou daar
Ek is bly ons ken mekaar
En jy’s hier in my hart lekker verjaar
Dankie weer vir ons tye saam
Dankie weer laat ons verder gaan
Want elke dag word net beter saam met jou
Luister weer na ons favourite song
Luister weer en jy sal verlang
En hoor jy my want ek sing dit saam met jou
Sien jou hier sien jou daar
Wil net sê lekker verjaar
Soos goeie wyn raak jy elke dag net beter
Sien jou hier sien jou daar
Ek is bly ons ken mekaar
En jy’s hier in my hart lekker verjaar
Lekker verjaar
Ek hoop jy kry jou wense
Lekker verjaar
Op jou spesiale dag
Lekker verjaar (Lekker verjaar)
Want jy verdien die beste
Lekker verjaar (Lekker verjaar)
Jy weet jy laat my lag
Sien jou hier sien jou daar
Wil net sê lekker verjaar
Soos goeie wyn raak jy elke dag net beter
Sien jou hier sien jou daar
Ek is bly ons ken mekaar
En jy’s hier in my hart lekker verjaar
Sien jou hier sien jou daar
Wil net sê lekker verjaar
Soos goeie wyn raak jy elke dag net beter
