The Lyrics

i was a-wand'rin' in the place of my birth
greetin' all the dutch people, as they say "hi" to me
and as i'm trav'lin', i see something disturbed
water barrier's broken...its a small hole, i see
and though, i know that it sounds strange, believe me, its true
and i have saved a lotta persons, i'm told, so pay me
i stuck my finger in this crumblin' dam

a thousand people could have been killed or hurt
you were saved by the water, and now, i want a fee
a thousand bucks could be split up many ways
just a buck per, i'm thrivin'...what a help it would be
but if you want to see it churn, i'll turn it on you
and that is what, exactly, i will do...you dare me ?
i stuck my finger in this crumblin' dam

and i don't understand
why are all you people, such cheap people
do you think i'm enjoyin' myself ?
you would all be frightened people
you'd be frightened by the seepin'
has my sufferin' no worth ? ..sufferin' no worth ?

i was a-wand'rin' in the place of my birth
greetin' all the dutch people, as they say "hi" to me
and as i'm trav'lin', i see something disturbed
water barrier's broken...its a small hole, i see
and though, i know that it sounds strange, believe me, its true
and i have saved a lotta persons, i'm told, so pay me
i stuck my finger in this crumblin' dam

and i don't understand
why are all you people, such cheap people
do you think i'm enjoyin' myself ?
you would all be frightened people
you'd be frightened by the seepin'
has my sufferin' no worth ? ..sufferin' no worth ?


dam's been unravelin' and crumblin' to dirt
saving so many people, is left all up to me
i stuck my finger in this crumblin' damn
don't want my finger in this crumblin' dam
you stick YOUR finger in this crumblin' dam
