Femke is a 12-year old girl who lives with her 3 little sisters and her parents in Tuitjenhorn, a small village in north-west of The Netherlands. Last year Femke already tried to reach the finals of the Dutch national selection, but this year she took revenge by winning it with the song Tik, Tak, Tik that she wrote herself.

Because she believes time is going too fast, she wishes to freeze the time. Femke has the desires to do a million things like feeding the cat or taking the dog out for a walk, but the only thing she really wants is to stay forever young and never grow up. 
The producer of her song is Tjeerd Oosterhuis, who was also responsible for the winning Junior Eurovison song of Ralf, ‘Click Clack’ in 2009.
Femke is a typical bubbling girl who loves to sing and dance, but also finds enough time to skeeler, swim or eat lots of chocolate. Her biggest dream is to be a famous singer. But when this goal will not be reached, she wants to become a hairdresser or maybe a maternity assistant.
The Netherlands will be hosting this year’s Junior Eurovision Songcontest. Femke is very proud that the 10th anniversary will take place in Amsterdam; she loves to show Europe how beautiful her country is.
She’s enjoys the advantage of staying for the Contest in the Netherlands which means she doesn’t have to travel to another country because Femke has fear of flying. She is really looking forward to make a big party on the Eurovision stage and hopes that she can freeze the European time with her spectacular moving clock-act.

Lyrics of Tik Tak Tik

  • English
Tik Tak tik tak tik Ooooh, oe yeah De klok tikt door, de wijzers draaien onverstoord verder naar het volgende uur De dag, gaat sneller dan ik wil, ik zou willen dat de tijd bevroor En dat ik eeuwig klein kan blijven Niet groter word, in m’n dromen droom ik dat het echt kan Tik tak tik, de tijd gaat veel te snel voor mij Ik moet nog sporten, dansen, zingen maar de dag is al voorbij Tik tak tik, ik wil ook zoveel tegelijk Ik ren m’n benen uit mijn lijf maar ondertussen vind ik maar geen tijd, geeen tijd Tik tak tik tak tik tak tik Tik tak tik tak tik Ik fiets door weer en wind, m’n trappers vliegen in het rond Ik moet de kat nog voeren en nog lopen met de hond Het duizelt voor m’n ogen dus ik strompel naar m’n bed Val doodmoe op mijn dekens, heb m’n wekker nog gezet Ik droom ervan, dat ik de tijd kan stoppen Niet groter word, in m’n dromen droom ik dat het echt kan Geen tijd, geen tijd Geen tijd om te chillen Of te hangen voor de tv Ik zou het anders willen maar de klok tikt door en door Hij heeft me in zijn greep Ooooh, oh nee, geen tijd, oh yeaah Geen tijd!
Tick , Tock, Tick Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock, Tick The clock ticks on, the hands move quietly on to the following hour The day goes by, faster than I want, I want time to freeze So I can stay young forever Never grow up, in my dreams I dream that I can Tick, tock, tick, time goes far too fast for me I have to run, dance and sing, but the day’s already done Tick, tock, tick, I want so much all at once I run till it hurts but I can’t find time, no time Tick, tock, tick,tick, tock, tick, Tick, tock, tick, tock I cycle through rain and wind, the pedals whizz round and round I have to feed the cat and take the dog out for a walk My head’s reeling so I stagger off to bed Fall onto my blanket, but remembered to set the alarm I dream that I can stop time Never grow up, in my dreams I dream that I can No time, no time No time to chill out Or watch TV I want to do something else but the clock keeps ticking Its got a hold of me Oh, oh no, no time, oh yeah No time!
