The Girls Of Amsterdam

Beautiful dolls in the windows patiently biding their time
With their eyes looking out to a street full of men
Who are trying to make up their minds
And the lights, they keep shining from eve to silvery dawn
And who needs to sleep when you're falling in love
With the girls of Amsterdam, boy!
The girls of Amsterdam

Soon after dark, we were drinking down at the corner cafe
But fighting broke out with terrible shouts
And people running away
For the cops they came streaming, trying to bring us all in
But we spent the night in soft silky beds
With the girls of Amsterdam, boy!
The girls of Amsterdam

Some people frown at them, blushing with shame
Others may call them by silly old names
But nobody loves a sailor
Like the girls of Amsterdam, boy!
The girls of Amsterdam

And thus, the day came creeping, boy, how the good times fly
As we watched the girls in the morning sun
Sadly waving goodbye
But at least our dreams they last like a sound caught in the wind
And I for one shall remember
The girls of Amsterdam, boy!
The girls of Amsterdam
