RED ROSE CAFE

They come from the farms and the factories too
And they all soon forget who they are.
The cares of today are soon washed away
As they sit at a stool by the bar.
The girl with green eyes in the Rolling Stones shirt
Doesn't look like she works on the land.
The man at the end, he's a very good friend
Of a man who sells cars second hand.

CHORUS:
Down at the Red Rose Cafe in the Harbour
There by the port just outside Amsterdam.
Everyone shares in the songs and the laughter.
Everyone there is so happy to be there.

The salesmen relax with a few pints of beer
As they try not to speak about trade.
The poet won't write any verses tonight.
He may sing a sweet serenade.
So pull up a chair and forget about life.
It's a good thing to do now and then
And if you like it here I have an idea
Tomorrow let's all meet again.

CHORUS (times 2)

P Kartner/D Black - Bospel Music/Copyright Control

Recorded as track 9 on "The Fureys' Finest" Rego-R-3650

Hi, DBW - what I find is Petrus Kartner/Donald Black. It was on a 1987 CD called Fureys Finest, but that sounds like a "Greatest Hits" album that would indicate there should be an earlier recording.

Saturday, August 9 Channel 13 6 pm has a special featuring an andre rieu, violinist - concert in Dublin, Ireland. He played a song -The Red Rose Cafe - the Irish audience went mad over it - they were singing the lyrics - so it must be well known in Ireland. Let me know if you find out anything else - I'm first generation Irish - but I never heard of it before.

I'm with GUEST. I watched Andre Rieu last night and saw the same -
the audience knew the words.   I did some checking today.   The song
also was on an older Rieu CD called "Heartstrings", which, for some
reason, could not be ordered by Sam Goody music.    I checked with a
music store specializing in sheet music.   They could not find it,
either.
Are the lyrics Jamas submitted above the same as the audience was
singing?????

What a coincidence. When I was watching the Andre Rieu with a friend I started to sing the red rose cafe in french and my friend siad to me "You know that song "
    So for you out there looking for answers I might be helpful
    The song was a big hit with a singer in france name JOE DASSIN The song is called Le cafe des trois colombes The three doves cafe
    M. Dassin past away probable 20 years ago but his ablums and song still very popular among francophone   I believe that the album is also called LE CAFE DES TROIS COLOMBES
    My appologies for my english skills
      Good luck surching

I have three verses:

RED ROSE CAFE
(P Cartner & D Black)

They come from the farms and the factories too
And they all soon forget who they are
The cares of today are soon washed away
As they sit at a stool by the bar
The girl with green eyes in the Rolling Stones shirt
Doesn't look like she works on the land
The man at the end, he's a very good friend
Of a man who sells cars second-hand

CHORUS:
Down at the Red Rose Cafe in the harbour
There by the port just outside Amsterdam
Everyone shares in the songs and the laughter
Everyone there is so happy to be there

The salesmen relax with a few pints of beer
And they try not to talk about trade
The poet won't write any verses tonight
But he may sing a sweet serenade
The grey-haired old man at the piano will play
Any song that you're wanting to hear
And Anthea she doesn't know how to sing
But the customers give her a cheer

Outside the real world races along
It's all dark and a little bit sad
So it's good to know there's a place you can go
Where a good time can be had
So pull up a chair and forget about life
It's a good thing to do now and then
And if you like it here I have an idea
Tomorrow let's all meet again

What were the lyrics in the chorus you listened to, medialu? (Always interested in different versions.)

The 3-verse version I posted above, I should have said, was passed on to me by a local singer who assured me that the Fureys version is not complete, and that the complete version is as he gave it to me. I cannot confirm this from written versions (all those I've come across are transcriptions from the Fureys). But knowing the Fureys' habit of truncating songs (e.g. When You Were Sweet Sixteen), I have no reason to doubt him. The folk process at work, no doubt!

Dear Joan:

1- My very sincerest apologies re: my telling you that you had the WRONG LYRICS to the ( Red Rose Cafe )

2- Your LYRICS were 100 % on TARGET !

3- On Sunday ( August 24th ) I was invited to a friend's house for Sunday Dinner -- said Husband & Wife of American-Irish Ethnicity.

4- I brought a copy of YOUR lyrics and was told in no uncertain terms -- that said lyrics were CORRECT !

5- They played an Irish CD -- and Lo ! -- the Red Rose Cafe !

6- Said couple had watched Andre Rieu and agreed with me -- that is -- when the audience sang the CHORUS -- said lyrics were hardly distinguishable -- giving the viewer the impression that the LYRICS were DIFFERENT !

7- Again -- my apologies !

Dear medialu

No apology necessary, and it's good to have confirmation from another source. Thanks for coming back with that. Maybe there's something about the chorus - I've sung this many times at my folk club, and there are always some who, for whatever reason, don't sing the chorus "correctly". Words get mixed up and sung in the wrong places, and those singing loudly then manage to confuse everyone else! I think there's something to be said for printing out chorus sheets...

Interesting timing on this song/thread. I wonder if those of us who like the song as song in English by the Furey Brothers will get pilloried for not doing it in the original French. As in the recent Jacques Brel thread.

I had always thought the song had a nice dockside French or Belgian feel to it but until now didn't know it had other lyrics and a different name.

I also heard the PBS concert : Andre Rieu in Dublin first week in June and just got "caught up in the moment" when the crowd started singing it with such simpatico.

I've always known this as Dutch Song .
I was busking in Amstrerdam in the 60's and still retain many friends there.
For those looking for the Red Rose Café, I'm sure there must be one somewhere which claims to be IT ,but, the Dutch Song simply says " En een kleine café bij de Haven " forgive my Dutch Grammar - simply in a small café by the harbour.
Let's give the credit for this one to our good friends the Cloggies, who are, after all, tremendous supporters of trad. songs in the English tongue in addition to being fanatics of Irish music in general.

Here's the Welsh words by the great poet, Myrddin Ap Dafydd - he used a Welsh name for the tafarn, but I chang it back to Saesneg for jams:

Am
Daw'r bobl yn llu o'u cartrefi i gyd
    E

Y haul yn ei grud, holi broblemau y byd
                                                Am
Ym angof mewn jôc ac mewn can
                                                            
Mae'r ferch ifanc dlos wrth y ffenestr gefn
                                       Dm7
Yn edrych ymhell bell i ffwrdd
                                  Am
Y dynion a'u ffyn yn edrych yn syn
       E                           A
Ar y dominos du ar y bwrdd

A
Lawr yn yr "Red Rose Cafe" ger yr harbwr
                                       E
Tafarn fach glyd ar y cei ger y don
             D                               A
Pawb yn rhannu caneuon a chroeso
                E                           Am
Pawb yn y tû yn hapus ac yn llon

Pysgotwyr yn gorffwys a pheint bach neu ddau
A'u hatgofion am oes ar y mor
Cawn gân fach neu ddwy -- efallai bydd mwy
Bydd pawb yn ymuno a'r côr
Eisteddwn i lawr, anghofiwch bob peth
Mae'n rhaid inni wneud ambell dro
Os mwynhewch chi eich hun, dowch eto nos Lun
Dydi'r drws yma byth, fyth ar glo.

En mensen die moe in hun huizen verdwijnen, ze hebben de dag weer gehad
De neonreclame die knipoogt langs ramen, het motregent zachtjes op straat
De stad lijkt gestorven toch klinkt er muziek uit een deur die nog wijd open staat

(mannen hoger)
Daar in dat kleine café aan de haven, daar zijn de mensen gelijk en tevree
Daar in dat kleine café aan de haven, daar telt je geld of wie je bent niet meer mee

De toog is van koper, toch ligt er geen loper, de voetbalclub hangt aan de muur
De trekkast die maakt meer lawaai dan de juke-box, een pilsje dat is er niet duur
Een mens is daar mens rijk of arm, 't is daar warm, geen monsieur of madame maar WC
Maar het glas is gespoeld in het helderste water, ja het is daar een heel goed café

(mannen hoger)
Daar in dat kleine café aan de haven, daar zijn de mensen gelijk en tevree
Daar in dat kleine café aan de haven, daar telt je geld of wie je bent niet meer mee

De wereldproblemen die zijn tussen twee glazen bier opgelost voor altijd
Op de rand van een bierviltje staat daar je rekening of je staat in het krijt
Het enige wat je aan eten kunt krijgen dat is daar een hard gekookt ei
De mensen die zijn daar gelukkig gewoon, ja de mensen die zijn daar nog blij

alleen mannen

Daar in dat kleine café aan de haven, daar zijn de mensen gelijk en tevree en tevree
Daar in dat kleine café aan de haven, daar telt je geld of wie je bent niet meer mee

Daar in dat kleine café aan de haven, daar zijn de mensen gelijk en tevree
Daar in dat kleine café aan de haven, daar telt je geld of wie je bent níet meer mee

Thanks, Jim Dixon. I looked but searched with 'T klein,' which I picked up somewhere. Should have remembered to look for the core words. Most of the websites, some with chords, have somewhat different words than those you posted, but, being limited in Dutch to a bit of sketchy translation, it really doesn't matter!
I was curious, because translations often change the meaning of the original composition.

We first heard this tune in 1981 with the title "Little Smurf Boat" We drove from Vancouver to Disneyland - and it was a fine time. Does any one know the "Little Smurf Boat Lyrics"

I wonder if the Cafe Rosa by the bridge in the old red light area is the basis for this song , it certainly fits with the lyrics and the Amsterdam ambience

"There is a little blue (smurf) boat in he harbor,
Blue as the sky, with a sail white as snow.
Is is the tiniest boat in the harbor,
And it will sail to anyplace you want to go."

Ah, Little Smurf Boat. Indeed a beautiful song. Here is the full set of lyrics:

LITTLE SMURF BOAT

The city's so busy, the noise makes you dizzy
The neon lights flash off and on
Everyone's in a hurry, you rush and you worry
The bus that you wanted is gone
But just off the highway, a road leading to
The big ships and boats lying afloat
There's sailboats and steamers with colorful streamers
big ships, and a little blue boat

CHORUS
There is a little smurf boat in the harbor
Blue as the sky with a sail white as snow
She is the tiniest boat in the harbor
But she will sail to anyplace you want to go

The sails are from snowflakes, the paint comes from blue lakes,
The beams are from matchsticks and glue
All day they eat cream cakes, the ones that Smurf Cookie bakes
Join us, you'll have some too
First mate and the captain, they share the same cabin,
The steward, he sleeps all day long
A smurf starts the engine, then plays his accordion,
And everyone joins in his song

CHORUS

She'll sail you to Hong Kong and then on to Boston
And anywhere you want to be
Jacata or Ceylon, Jamaica or Lisbon
Oh what a life on the sea
She'll sail you to Oslo and then back to Rio
Pass dolphins and whales on the way
And Dreamland gets stranded, in Smurfland we've landed
I bet this is where you will stay

CHORUS (repeat to fade)

The Dutch lyrics are certainly very different to the earlier ones given in English.!!! My Dutch is quite good, but it would take me a while to translate them accurately ! Anyone else care to try ?? Iemand anders , dat liever komt uit Nederlands, misschien ??

HET KLEINE CAFE

De avondzon valt over straten en pleinen
de gouden zon zakt in de stad
De mensen die moe in hun huizen verdwijnen
ze hebben de dag weer gehad.
De neonreclame die knipoogt langs de ramen
het motregent zachtjes op straat.
De stad lijkt gestorven, toch klinkt er muziek
uit een deur die nog wijd open staat.


refrein:
Daar in dat kleine café aan de haven,
daar zijn de mensen gelijk en tevree.
Daar in dat kleine café aan de haven,
daar telt je geld, of wie je bent niet meer mee.

De toog is van koper toch ligt er geen loper
de voetbalclub hangt aan de muur.
de trekkast die maakt meer lawaai dan de juke-box
'n pilsje dat is er niet duur.
Een mens is daar mens, rijk of arm, 't is daar warm
geen monsieur of madam maar wc
Maar 't glas is gespoeld in het helderste water
ja 't is daar een heel goed café

refrein

De wereldproblemen die zijn tussen twee
glazen bier opgelost voor altijd.
Op de rand van een bierviltje staat daar je rekening
of, je staat in het krijt.
Het enige wat je aan eten kunt krijgen
dat is daar een hard gekookt ei.
De mensen die zijn er gelukkig gewoon
Ja, de mensen die zijn daar nog blij.

It has been a while since the last post, but if you want lyrics for this song, here they are, all that I could find, write down, get others to write down, whatever it took.
From the ones was looking for, only the Italian version is still missing, if anybody can help me with those, do let me know, please.

Looks like this hasn't been looked at for a while. Red Rose Cafe is not on the Scattering album only on the Furey's Finest and replying to an earlier post there is a red rose cafe group in Australia who meet regularly and have an annual celebration.This site also has connections:- http://www.andrerieu-movies.com/RedRoseCafe.html .
