Wiki

This song, whose title translates back to 'Ride of death' in English, is about a family traveling to Omsk (West-Siberia) while being chased by a pack of wolves. To keep the wolves at bay, they sacrifice their childeren, and eventually themselves.

While the song has a clear Russian influence and sound, it is packed with titles from traditional Dutch child songs:
Oh, wat zijn wij heden blij (Oh, what are we happy today)
Ajoen Ajoen (in de hoge klapperboom) (Ajoen, Ajoen in the tall coconut tree)
In Den Haag daar woont een graaf (In The Hague lives a count)
Hoeperdepoep zat op de stoep (Hoeperdepoep sat on the curb)
Daar was laatst een meisje loos (There was a girl loose)
Onder moeders paraplu (Under mothers umbrella)
In een blauw geruite kiel (In a blue checkered keel)
