Hak Hom Blokkies Joubert

David Kramer

Inleiding

The moustache on his lip is pencil thin like the middle path through his hair,
and although his friends call him Blokkies, his wife would call him Joubert.

Ag!, Christina, Christina, he thinks to himself, you never could understand,
what it feels like to dummy and to sidestep, with a leather ball in your hands.

Man it's hard to believe this is Blokkies Joubert, the hooker in the Springbok scrum, 
cause he's old and grey and he sits in his chair in the slanting winter sun.
But he made is name with that wonderful game that he played ... in 1931.

Well he sits in the lounge of the old age home,
just north of Beaufort West, and he watches a TV program of the Springbok rugby test.
As the images flicker upon the screen, he can hear the manne call ...

They say, "Hak hom hak hom Blokkies, Blokkies hak daai ball".

En ons sê:

Druk hulle. druk hulle Blokkies mmm ... druk hulle mannetjies flou,
Hak hulle hak Blokkies mmm ... hak hulle bolletjie gou,
Lig julle knieë, druk julle drieë daar agter die doellyn nou.

Instrumenteel

He sits there in the afternoon sun, his memories come and go.
He can clearly recall Bennie Osler and Boy and Fanie Louw.
Yes!, there they stand with the rest of the team in the photograph on the wall,
and if you ask him, he will show you, where they signed on his rugby ball.

En ons sê:

Druk hulle, druk hulle Blokkies, druk hulle mannetjies flou.
Hak hulle,  hak Blokkies, hak hulle bolletjie gou.
Lig julle knieë, druk julle drieë daar agter die doellyn nou. 

Ja, ons ouens was rof in die ou dae, but we played the gentleman's game.
But it's all been spoiled by politics, never going to be the same.
So he drifts back to the old days and he hears the manne call.
They say, "Hak hom, hak hom Blokkies, Blokkies hak daai ball".

En ons sê:

Druk hulle, druk hulle Blokkies, druk hulle mannetjies flou,
Hak hulle, hak Blokkies, hak hulle bolletjie gou,
Lig julle knieë, druk julle drieë daar agter die doellyn nou.

En ons sê:

Druk hulle, druk hulle Blokkies, druk hulle mannetjies flou,
Ja, hak hulle, hak Blokkies, hak hulle bolletjie gou,
Lig julle knieë, druk julle drieë daar agter die doellyn nou.
