Here's a video of Stef Bos singing the Afrikaans song SUIKERBOSSIE at YouTube. The underlying tune is the same, but the mood is much different from the Doris Day/Frankie Laine rendering. It sounds rather plaintive, or perhaps nostalgic.

Also, although I don't understand Afrikaans at all, I'm pretty sure he sings several verses that are different from what is printed above.

These instrumental interpretations are probably more typical:

a guitar and concertina arrangement

piano accordion
