23rd February 2019: Dorus – Twee motten

Artist: Dorus  
Title: Twee motten
Language: Dutch
Translation: Two moths

Born Antoon (Tom) Manders), one of his later incarnations was Dorus, and he was a comedian / cabaret performer in this role. The song I have chosen today was originally released in 1956. It is about how Dorus has a couple of moths living in his old brown coat, but he doesn’t have the heart to get rid of them. They go on to have ten moth children, all happily nibbling away at his jacket. This man was in tune with nature!
