Maybe I been doing to much Spanish, but why not 'The boys drink water?'

That would be de jongens

With the article "the" you single out a specific group of boys without it, it is more of a general statement

Why is it jongens and not jongenen?

-en seems to only be added to one syllable words. I'm still a beginner though so maybe I'm mistaken.
