Boating, drinking tea

Maybe it's not a real snickering song. By coincidence we discovered Bert van Zantwijk's explanation of the song “Schuitje varen”. We do not want to keep this from the towers. Have fun reading the explanation.

First version:

Boating, drinking tea

We sail to the Overtoom

We drink sweet milk with cream

Sweet milk with chunks

Ten o'clock the bells are striking

Second version:

Boating, drinking tea

We sail to the Overtoom

We drink sweet milk with cream

Sweet milk with chunks

Girl do you already know?
