Deedee Pitt

'Laars Er Op' is taken from the 'From the Kitchen to the Garage' compilation which consists of 60's Dutch girl-groups.

I have no idea what Laars Er Op means, but in the Danish language Lars is a boy name, 'Er' is are, and 'Op' is up. So Lars Is Up? Up Where? I don't know, but I know this is your new favorite song. ;)

'Laars er op' means 'Put Your Boot On It'. Could also be slang for 'Get Lost!' (ie. 'Lazer op')

The song is about a shop assistant, who is fed up stacking boots.

Yep that's a great song about a shop assistant telling her customers to get lost! :)
"laars er op" is a wordplay on "lazer op" which means "get lost",since she's selling boots lazer is changed to "laars er"(laars=boot).When it is pronounced it almost sounds the same... ;) Very clever!

This song is written by Bob Bouber, who alsu made the immortal song "ik wil me donalduckie van ze terug" (I want them to give back my little donalducky") which is about some idiot who loves bathing with a rubber ducky but has to steal one to do so until the police comes, and takes away his toy after which he goes beserk.

The featured song here is a fine example of Boubers wordplay skills and the funny sixties-beat period in the Netherlands..
