Original video
Amsterdam, oh, Amsterdam
How I love you Amsterdam
When I get there I'm gonna kiss the ground
That you stand on Amsterdam

I left my home and I left my friends
Said I'll be back but I don't know when
Set my sail to the restless wind
So long, oh Amsterdam

I picked plums up in Yakimo
And I picked pearles down in Arkansas
Even learned how to say you all
But I still miss Amsterdam

Amsterdam, oh, Amsterdam
How I love you Amsterdam
When I get there I'm gonna kiss the ground
That you stand on Amsterdam

I did my thing in Tokyo
Tried my luck in Kokomo
Searched for Bill in Buffalo
But I still miss Amsterdam

I picked peaches in a Georgia town
And I picked cotton down in Birmingham
At the day I'll get out of Alabam
I'm goin' back to Amsterdam

Amsterdam, oh, Amsterdam
How I love you Amsterdam
When I get there I'm gonna kiss the ground
That you stand on Amsterdam

Amsterdam, oh, Amsterdam
How I love you Amsterdam
When I get there I'm gonna kiss the ground
That you stand on Amsterdam
