Snuffy Marais and Miranda Documentary (69* d) ADD: Dar Kom Die Alabama 25 Mar 02


Daar Kom Die Alabama is performed by Andy Hindley of the Shellback Chorus, who will be at Lancaster Maritime Festival over Easter weekend.

I've never seen the words, but here's what it sounds like:

DAR KOM DIE ALABAMA

Daar Kom Die Alabama
Die Alabama die kom or die See
Daar Kom Die Alabama
Die Alabama die kom or die See

Noy, noy, die Rikoy noy
Die Rikoy iss fair mak
Die Rikoy iss fair mairger mak
Sie kom daar op de slak

Die Alabama, die Alabama
Die Alabama die kom or die See
Die Alabama, die Alabama
Die Alabama die kom or die See

Does this make sense to any Dutch/Afrikaans speakers? If Andy's with the Shellbacks at Lancaster, I'll see if I can get the real words, and find out where he got the song from.

WassaiL! V
