Hen weekend/hen weekend

The ‘two more or less identical lyrics to one song principle’ will be applied here as well.

Drie wodka lach/hen weekend

Aan ramp toerisme doen we niet
Kijken naar anderman’s ellende
Nee, het moet niet te gezellig zijn
Anders wordt het een bende

Dus foto’s doen tijden speeches
Heeft menig carrière geknakt
In de knop nog zoveel belovend
Hij is er bruut afgehakt

Brug
Het hen weekend legt de lat
Een tikkeltje te hoog
De standaard songs karaoke - Carry Joke
Houden het niet droog

Chorus I
Ik heb een foto
van je drie wodka lach
Sjonge jonge de bliksem sloeg in
Toen ik je zag

Chorus II
Ik heb een foto
van je zes wodka lach
Kostte me moeite te bedenken
Wa’k er ooit in zag

Het feestboek heeft als tricky kant
Buitensporigheden aan te sporen
‘k Zei nog: je doet voorzichtig hè?
Maar je leek het niet te horen

Vrouwen geven zichzelf de schuld
Mannen de schuld aan iedereen
Ditmaal was de duidelijkheid goed
Zo’n dronken lor wil er geen een

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.

Three vodka smile/hen weekend

Oh no, no disaster tourism
Watching other people’s misery
Oh it’s going to be be an awful mess
Don’t want it to be too cozy

Taking pictures during speeches
Has ruined many a career
In the bud it was most promising
But it was brutally cut off my dear

Bridge
The hen weekend set the bar
Slightly too high
The standard songs karaoke - Carry joking
Down with a sigh

Chorus I
I’ve got a picture
of your three workable smile
Lightning strikes for one of those smiles
I’d walk a mile

Chorus II
I’ve got a picture
Of your six vodka smile
Wonder what I saw in you
Erased from my files

Facebook has a tricky side
All outrage magnified
Told you to be careful didn’t I?
But you thought I lied

All women blame themselves
And men blame everyone
This time it was crystal clear
Drunk as a skunk is no fun

Deo and Corona volente, this one will be next in line. The Dutch version I did yesterday evening.
Kind regards, Gus

Hi @LePlongeur 

I've never heard of a "hen weekend". I had to look it up. Of course, I'm not much of a party boy … so that might be why.  :D

But, yeah, I could see this happening. Facebook messes up people's lives for certain.

Is a nice line in English.

The Dutch version has some BIG words! To me anyway …  :)   I'm afraid to even try pronouncing this one "Buitensporigheden"  :o

Thank you @Bill from November Sound for the compliments.
What I do isn't exactly mainstream in the Netherlands, so it's only to be expected that it's not much different here. Buitensporigheden aan te sporen is really the nails on its head but not too many lyricists will use strange word braiding like this.

There are hen weekends (quite often among collegues) and more often than not the amounts of alcohol exceed the pizza's.
There are hen fights as well. As in football, it's never said, but it revolves around ball possession. The saying: Let's wait until the feathers no longer fly, is 100% a direct result of such fights.

Does it show I'm not into facebook? Not too much I hope!
Thank you for your time and comments.
They really mean a lot to me.

Kind regards, Gus
