that's My World Alex Klaassen, A new Dutch Talent!.

I saw this Dutch cabaret performer, Alex Klaassen, on TV and enjoyed his performance so much, that I thought you might also like it, even if you don't understand it. Anyway the translation shows that it's about two lonely children wanting to play together. Instead of children singing, "two" opera singers sing it in their operatic way.

Male opera singer singing a duet with a female opera singer in a Dutch children's song.

Kom je strakjes bij me spelen
Want ik heb een nieuwe trein
En wel vijfentwintig auto's
En een grammofoon
Kom je strakjes bij me spelen
'k Heb ook een geheime steen
En ik ben alleen (la, la...)


Kom je strakjes bij me spelen
'k Heb ook poppen en een koek
En een boek met vliegtuigplaatjes
Een pistool met schijf
Kom je strakjes bij me spelen
'k Heb ook nog een step te leen
En ik ben alleen

Both singers together.

Kom je strakjes bij me spelen
Of misschien dan morgen wel
'k Heb een nieuwe fluit gekregen
En een schimmenspel
Kom je ooit nog bij me spelen
Behalve jou ken ik geen
Want ik ben alleen


Would you come and play with me
For I have a nice new train
And as many as twenty-five cars
And a record player
Would you come and play with me
I 've also a secret stone
And I am alone( la, la..)

Would you come and play with me
I've got dolls and a cake
And a book with plane pictures
A pistol and a disk
Would you come and play with me
I've got a scooter too on loan
And I am alone...

Would you come and play with me
Or perhaps tomorrow then
I have got a new flute
And a shadow show
Will you ever play with me
For except you I know none
And I am alone...

I enjoy songs in other languages, and he did a great job here. The legs and shoes were a little odd though. Haha...gave me a chuckle!
I have missed a few of your posts for some reason. I love the swan photo and story. Have a great day Wil!

Il a de bonnes cordes vocales pour chanter comme cela – c’est assez rare.
