The Lyrics

We don't sell coffee, we sell weed my dear
We'll put a mushroom on the side
We even put it in our bubble gum
Yes it is Amsterdam where I'm from
Take a walk along canals then you'll
See our windows with red lights
Put on your raincoat for you come
It is Amsterdam where I'm from

Ooh, I sell amphetamine, and even legal heroin
It is Amsterdam where I'm from
Oooh, hallucinogen, or anesthetic medicine
It is Amsterdam where I'm from

I'll inject till you hallucinate
Make you the hero of the day
You won't bother bout the feds and smile
You'll be yourself, no matter what they say

Ooh, I sell amphetamine, and even legal heroin
It is Amsterdam where I'm from
Oooh, hallucinogen, or anesthetic medicine
It is Amsterdam where I'm from

If you're into propriety
Or looking for sobriety
In Holland you might be the only one
We've got a lot variety, in our mixed society
And if you come, you better come undone

(musical piece)

You'll enjoy it here if your a man
But put your rubber on your gun
Beware of shims in Thai avoid them when you can
And louze your one eyed ranger when you're done
