Ek Bou 'n Huisie

My hele lewe lank bou ek ‘n huisie
Ek bou die mure so steentjie vir steentjie
(steentjie vir baksteentjie)

my hele lewe lank droom ek ‘n droompie
ek slaap so salig hier onder my boompie

my hele lewe lank klim ek ‘n leertjie
wat wag vir my op die volgende treetjie?

My hele lewe lank loop ek ‘n paadjie
Ek loop te lank al so sonder ‘n maatjie

en ek bou maar ek kom nooit klaar
En ek klim maar ek is nooit daar
En ek droom maar ek staan nooit op
En ek loop so deur my
Loop so deur my kop

My whole life I am building a cottage
I build the walls little brick by brick
(Brick by brick)

My whole life I dream a little dream
I sleep so blissfully here under my little tree

My whole life I climb a little ladder
What awaits my at the next run?

My whole life I walk a path
Too long have I been walking without a friend

and I build, but I never get done
And I climb, but I am never there
And I dream, but I never get up
And I walk through my ...
...walk through my head
