George Ezra - Blind Man In Amsterdam Lyrics




I saw a blind man in Amsterdam with a box around his neck
And the music box kept singing on and the song I won't forget

It went boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boom boom
boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boooodum

Well 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 walk past the man so fast
The audience kept moving on ignoring the cast
I found 50 of his currency and dropped it in his tin
He said "When your adventure ends your next one will begin"
When this adventure ends your next one will begin

With a boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boom boom
Boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boooodum

You'll find a blind man in Amsterdam with a box around his neck
And the music box keeps singing on and the song you won't forget
The song you won't forget

With a boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boom boom
Boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boooodum
Boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boom boom
Boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boooodum
Boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boom boom
Boomdidi boomdidi boom boom boom boodum boodum boooodum

    Short but beautiful song George! Thank you so much for your music! But it's true what people wrote here. The man you've met in Amsterdam with that box around his neck. He past away. He has got what he deserved, a song about him on a great album called "Wanted on Voyage". You are telling stories with you songs. Stories about the real life.

    Want to let you all know that the man George Ezra sings about in this song has died at age 61

  26. Chachaloco123

    this "blind man" is called blinde bennie and he's sick/dying and has a succesfull crowdfunding in amsterdam enjoying his last months with a lot of support and money.

  27. Robert Hendriks

    unfortunately last night was his last time. The Blind man named Bennie is terminally ill. I was born and growed up in Amsterdam and Bennie was a icon in Amsterdam. He made Amsterdam lives.

    For al the people all over the world who now Bennie and saw him. Someone started a crowdfund https://www.doneeractie.nl/blinde-bennie-39-s-crowdfund-aktie/-4538

    Because the blind man Bennie never want to ask for a unemployment benefit and thats why he was Always there next to the Nieuwe Kerk with his music. And even now he is terminally ill and don't have income he don't want to ask for a unemployment benefit.

    The Doctors told him 7 october 2017 that there are no more chances for him and that the cancer is gonna win. They told him that he has only few months to live at the max half year.

  28. Jessie luciano
