The Dutchman’s not the kind of man to keep his thumb jammed in the dam
That holds his dreams in
But that’s a secret that only Margaret knows.

When Amsterdam is golden,
In the morning Margaret brings him breakfast,
She believes him.

He thinks the tulips bloom beneath the snow.
He’s mad as he can be, but Margaret only sees that sometimes,
Sometimes she sees her unborn children in his eyes.

Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee.
Long ago, I used to be a young man
And dear Margaret remembers that for me.

The Dutchman still wears wooden shoes, his cap and coat are patched with the love
That Margaret sewed there.
Sometimes he thinks he’s still in Rotterdam.
He watches the tugboats down canals

An’ calls out to them when he thinks he knows the Captain.
Till Margaret comes to take him home again
Through unforgiving streets that trip him, though she holds his arm,
Sometimes he thinks he’s alone and he calls her name.

Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee.
Long ago, I used to be a young man
And dear Margaret remembers that for me.

Ohh the windmills swirl the winter wind, she winds his muffler tighter
they sit in the kitchen.
And a tea with whiskey keeps away the dew. He sees her for a moment, calls her name,

She makes the bed up humming some old love song,
She learned it when the tune was very new
He hums a line or two, they hum together in the night.
The Dutchman falls asleep and Margaret blows the candle out.

Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee.
Long ago, I used to be a young man
And dear Margaret remembers that for me.

Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee.
Long ago, I used to be a young man
And dear Margaret remembers that for me.
