Amsterdam

Looking good through the window
Shinin red and blue light
A little thick in the bottom
But still lookin allright, yeah
Got a pocket full of money
Got me a long night ahead
A quick stop by the bulldog
Score me some panama red, yeah
Wham, bam, oh amsterdam, yeah, yeah, yeah
Stone you like nothin else can, yeah, yeah, yeah
Hot damn, roll an amsterdam, yeah, yeah, yeah
If she cant, then nothin else can
Caught a plane outta moskow
Spent one cold night in berlin
Its a long hard way
But Im comin back again, yeah
Wham, bam, oh amsterdam, yeah, yeah, yeah
Stone you like nothin else can, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, come on now, roll an amsterdam, yeah, yeah, yeah
If she cant, then no one else can, yeah, yeah, yeah

Amsterdam

This song was first released on the take me to tomorrow album. it is the only album it has been released on.
Of the dreams that he brings from the wide open sea
In the port of amsterdam theres a sailor who sleeps
While the river bank sweeps to the old willow tree
In the port of amsterdam theres a sailor who dies
Full of beer, full of cries in a drunkin down fight
But in the port of amsterdam theres a sailor whos bom
On a muggy, hot mom by the dawns early light
In the port of amsterdam where the sailors all meet
Theres a sailor who eats only fish heads and tails
He will show you his teeth that have rotted too soon
That can swallow the moon that can haul up the I sails
And he asks to the cook with his amms open wide
Bring me more fish, put it down by my side
And he wants so to belch, but hes too full to try
So he gets up and he laughs, and he zips up his fty
In the port of amsterdam you can see sailors dance
Haunches bursting their pants, binding women to paunch
Theyve forgotten the tune that their whiskey voice croaks
And their splitting the night with the roar of their jokes

Ich Liebe Dich Amsterdam

Ich liebe dich
Amsterdam
Ich liebe dich Amsterdam
Because you are a beautiful city
And I just landed at the Schiphol Airport
And my driver that was provided for me from work will drive me
To the hotel
And I am very lucky because inside of that limousine there is a computer
So I can do my work while mydriver takes me to my hotel
And my work won't be wasted
Rather than to have the work done on time
Ich liebe dich
Amsterdam
And now I am arriving at my hotel where I will stay for couple nights
I don't know what to expect from dowtown Amsterdam

But once we got on the air, everybody except Morey Amsterdam pretty much stuck to the script.

Cenotaph / Letter From Amsterdam

Snow hard up against my doorway
And its falling twice as fast
Funny I was just thinking of you my friend
How long you were gonna last
Driving those blizzards cross europe
Snow chains on you back
64 feet of mobile thunder, leaving a ten wheel track
Its good to hear from you, go easy when you can
My day is better for your letter from amsterdam
I stand alone by the cenotaph
Where the unknown soldier lies
And its somewhere out there that you are
This freedom angel died
To save us from depression
Today I look around, boys our age and younger
I fear we let them down
Its good to hear from you, go easy when you can
My day is better for your letter from amsterdam
The town squares disappearing
It drifts up to my knees

I still have agents in France, Los Angeles and Amsterdam who call and suggest parts. I'd love to keep on doing both painting and acting until the end of my days.

In Amsterdam the water is the mistress and the land the vassal. throughout the city there are as many canals and drawbridges as bracelets on a Gypsy's bronzed arms.

Amsterdam was a great surprise to me. I had always thought of Venice as the city of canals; it had never entered my mind that I should find similar conditions in a Dutch town.

Amsterdam must have more than a million people. But the only area where jazz is really profitable and successful in an economic sense is in Japan. That's because they haven't been exposed enough.

Amsterdam Brownies

There not my mother's specials
Though they'd give her quite a kicker
It packs a punch when you're a starter
Or an invalid, with Amish liver
Initiates I would administer
Biscuits with a pinch of hash
Than work towards the ganja cake
Which no conscience can pretend to fake
We'll strip the layers of black and white
To transcend colors of a mental flight
A first class ticket to a surrealist dance
Just bite your tongue if you must scream

Because you will be arriving into Eden

Upon the fjords up a river,
Were bicycles, are not much quicker.
Go down the Singel; a charming canal
That flows like champagne inside a well
Spot the antiques from old Orange days

I know that I am very popular in Holland, in fact I have visited Amsterdam several times to publicize my books. I have a great publisher in Holland and they have published all of my books in Dutch.

My experience in Amsterdam is that cyclists ride where the hell they like and aim in a state of rage at all pedestrians while ringing their bell loudly, the concept of avoiding people being foreign to them.

Once I even took the train to Utrecht, forty miles from Amsterdam, with my yellow star, this star which I still have. Why did I go? I just wanted to visit some friends. I was a little bit crazy, a little bit insane.

Christmas in Amsterdam

I spent Christmas in Amsterdam
Next I will try Japan, It wouldn’t harm
Stayed in a hostel at a farm
That grew only potatoes and yam

I visited the town on the towns’ tram
Breakfast was fried eggs and cold ham
I tipped the waitress calling her 'Madam'
Rode on the river canal across the dam
Waved across to who I believe was Uncle Sam
Clear sights hindered by snowy traffic jams
Allowed my camera to stay warm in my palm
Preventing pictures from been erased in ram

Lunch was stewed rice and lamb
I ate and ignored a baby crying in its pram
Then went to bed and took a nap to feel calm
Woke up to the sound of junkie trams
Opened my window and screamed out 'Damn'
Threw a bottle out missing someone’s arm

When every piece of furniture and your underwear are taken by the bank, when you lose your house in Florida, in New York, in Amsterdam and L.A., when your wife is dying and your son abandons you, you don't feel very good.

Music Man (The)

hey there mister music man
play your music like you did
last night when i saw you live
on fifth and amsterdam


hey there mister music man
spread your music 'cross the land
i'd follow you from here to there
just like you asked when i was there
but sadly i cant follow through
for my bestfriend is terminal
they say its name is Cancer


hey there mister music man
play your music spread your love,
like you did on 5th and amsterdam
would you come play for my friend
mister music man

No Country of Romance

Blue skies over Amsterdam reveal a kingdom far from clean.
As we do the best we feel we can in an attempt to make true the dream.
For this is no country of romance and not a single tulip did I see.
Yet in truth there was the freedom we had been promised.
Simply a freedom hidden behind a wall of demon-like stares.
It seems as though its so hard for anyone to care in the place.
Its as though no one is really ever there. As the ghost of memories
Wavering runs her fingers through my hair I know that I was there.
If only it were my form that bore the storm my soul was loosened from the
Constrictions of its self knowing - yet I wish I had the ability to show you
Through an expression of wonderment all it is you mean to me.
More than the Blue skies of Amsterdam and more than the deepest sea
Regardless of its treasures concealed. For within any relationship there are
Pleasures to be sought and lessons to be taught as there are revelations revealed - I try not to get caught up in it all
But it is for you that I have fallen. And now upon my knees I'm asking of you
To set sail your soul upon the breeze of un known whisperings melodic.

Istanbul

Istanbul was constantinople
Now it's istanbul, not constantinople
Been a long time gone, constantinople
Now it's turkish delight on a moonlit night
Every gal in constantinople
Lives in istanbul, not constantinople
So if you've a date in constantinople
She'll be waiting in istanbul
Even old new york was once new amsterdam
Why they changed it i can't say
People just liked it better that way
So take me back to constantinople
No, you can't go back to constantinople
Been a long time gone, constantinople
Why did constantinople get the works?
That's nobody's business but the turks
Istanbul (istanbul)
Istanbul (istanbul)
Even old new york was once new amsterdam
Why they changed it i can't say

Conaway

Special anointing oil,
The woman sat on the bed and romantically tapped
the man on the arm!
But i am Conaway from the land of Kumchacha;
And i have something special to share with you.

Sensing,
You got married two weeks ago! !
Perception,
And like your love in Amsterdam Hotel;
But i am Conaway from the lnd of Kumchacha!
And i have something special to share with you.
