Lyrics
Painted faces everywhere, I do not see a one
Deas dogs are lying upside down, moulding in the sun
I'm looking for a friendly face, something to remind me of home
But the girl with the lipstick and the flashing eyes she doesn't give me none

Chorus: Down in the Vondel Park, kids are gonna jump and shout
Down in the Melkweg, the heat is on
It's smoking and knocking them out, that's Amsterdam, Amsterdam.
Somebody give me a ticket, I want to fly back home
I want to see my best friend cause I know she's all alone
She's the sweet and lightness I've been looking for
Honey, honey, where are you? Just can't take no more

Chorus

Down in the Vondel Park, kids are gonna jump and shout
Down in the Melkweg, it is hot
It's smoking and knocking them out, that's Amsterdam
Well I'm looking, looking for somewhere, a hole to hide
I'm riding on the cobble stones but I haven't got a plane to ride
Maybe tomorrow, maybe the next day they'll let me go away
Oh baby, there's so many many times and I hate to feel this way

Chorus

Amsterdam, well that's Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Amsterdam
