The Lyrics

From “The Book of Pleasureland,” Chris van Abkoude. Cockaigne was a mythical medieval land of plenty. In the Low Countries, in which the myth was most predominant, Cockaigne was called Luilekkerland (“lazy, luscious land,” or “pleasureland”). I translated “Depiction” from Dutch and rendered the resulting parody in rhyme. The original follows the parody.
After you round rice-porridge mountain
You're bound to Luilekkerland
Where, spoutin' from the fountains
Is wine. You'll find free lemonade stands
The bread rolls loll in the brook
And fried fish hop in your hand
Roast doves fly in your mouth's nook
And piglets, at your command,
Run around, with fork and knife
Already stuck in their backs
The gingerbread house is rife
With sweets everywhere for snacks
For a hoot, you can go shoot
Sausages and ham; and in
The "clothes forest" is a beaut
Of a new wardrobe. You're thin
Gluttony is not a crime
And it's always Christmas time
If all of this doesn't please
Gold and silver grow on trees

----------------------------------------------

Na de berg van rijstebrij
komt men in luilekkerland
waar de fontein wijn en limonade spuit,
broodjes in de beek drijven,
de vissen gebakken in je hand springen,
gebraden duiven in je mond vliegen,
biggetjes al met mes en vork in hun rug rondlopen,
het snoep regent en de huizen van koek zijn.
Als spel kun je ham- en worstschieten,
in het "kleerenbosch" een nieuwe garderobe
aanschaffen en het is er altijd kermis.
Goud en zilver groeit er aan de bomen
