Chorus

C                               G
Potverdekke, it's great to be a Belgian
        D                                   G
I'm not English, I'm not French and I'm not Dutch
         C                      G
(I'm not Spanish, Portuguese or German)
      D                          G
I'm a Belgian, so thank you very much!

Verse 1 - 1:50

     D                   
As I walk along the streets
        G
With my mayonnaise and frites
        D                         G
You can tell I'm as happy as can be
        D
With my Duvel in my hand
      G
Then you must understand
      C                           D
I'm a Belgian, so nothing worries me!

Chorus

Potverdekke, it's great to be a Belgian
I'm not English, I'm not French and I'm not Dutch
(I'm not Irish, Italian or Danish)
I'm a Belgian, so thank you very much

Verse 2

Without the Belgians there would be no saxophone
no Tintin, captain Haddock or Poirot
and you'll excuse me if I ‘ve missed
anybody of the list
These are the only Belgians that I know!

Chorus

Potverdekke, it's great to be a Belgian
I'm not English, I'm not French and I'm not Dutch
(I'm not Finnish, Austrian or Swedish)
I'm a Belgian, so thank you very much!

Verse 3

Now the English egg and bacon's not so bad
Especially since all their cows went mad
But if they've never tasted mussels
On the Grand Place down in Brussels
It's no wonder they're feeling very sad!

Chorus

Potverdekke, it's great to be a Belgian
I'm not English, I'm not French and I'm not Dutch
(I'm not Irish, Italian or Danish)
I'm a Belgian, so thank you very much

Verse 4

I'm a Belgian, I'm not Irish, I'm not Greek
I don't drink Guinness or Retsina, I drink Kriek!
On the Schelde or the Meuse
You find me drinking Gueuze
Or Leffe or Chimay or Lambik!

Chorus

Potverdekke, it's great to be a Belgian
I'm not English, I'm not French and I'm not Dutch
(I'm not Spanish, Portuguese or German)
I'm a Belgian, so thank you very much

Chorus

Potverdekke, it's great to be a Belgian
I'm not English, I'm not French and I'm not Dutch
(And me, I'm not a Luxemburger)
I'm a Belgian, so thank you very much
