The Cargo Bike Song

Every year there is an occassion at the International Cargo Bike Festival to sing the Cargo Bike Song.
In 2016 Johan Erlandsson practiced the Dutch version of the song and sang it in DE Vasim riding the Velove Armadillo together with Ron Vervuurt.
Allways a surprise who is going to sing it. Will you this year?

Chair of the Day, Ron Vervuurt, sang the song at the end of the day in 2015.

The song as I know it is from 1968 from Egbert Douwe (Rob Out) and it is called in Dutch "Kom uit je bedstee mijn liefste" (Come out of the bed, my darling)

Ron Vervuurt wrote the new Dutch version and he did the translation into English as well.

However the original song is from The Brothers Four and written by Eric Andersen, "Come to my bedside, my darling"

Ron Vervuurt already sang the song at the Cargo BikeFestival 2014, but only few people were in the tent to listen then.

Looking forward to the performances of this year!
