Groningen Alumni Song

Om mee te zingen:

I kiss my mom goodbye in the drizzling rain
“Thanks for doing my laundry” – I get on the train
Groningen welcomes me; I say hi to Ome Loeks
Then I buy a magazine from the homeless clown
See the sun come out as I walk into town

Oh Groningen I love you
Can’t stop thinking of you
No matter what I do
Grunnen on my mind

Trying to park my bike near the library
But 3.000 others were there before me…
At last I open my notebook, in my favourite reading room
I sit down, I look around me and I like what I see
Four hundred years, my university!

I’m in my room with a book in my lap, I try to concentrate…
then a knock at the door, and in comes my friend
yet another day in Groningen that will have no end:

Sunny afternoon, let’s make an early start
First, have a couple of beers at the Grote Markt
We drink a toast to the alumni, our ambassadors all over the world
Then paint the town red until the early morning
Till we see the sun light up the Martinitoren

    Grappig gedaan. Muzikaal vind ik het prima in elkaar zitten.
    En wel een leuke vondst: early morning rijmen op Martinitoren 🙂

  2. Robert Zegt:

    Inderdaad leuk gedaan. 🙂 Is die zanger niet ver gekomen in ‘The Voice of Holland’ afgelopen seizoen?
