Robinson, Tom - Living In A Love Town Lyrics




Sick and lonely to a man
Cutting through the Zuider See
Limping in to Amsterdam
Battle weary and fatigued
Docking on Saint Stephen's Eve
As four and twenty hours of foreign leave
Came into sight
Saw the city shining bright
A beacon in this flooded countryside
We'll spend the night

Living in a love town
We were hungry to a man
Living in a love town
In the heart of Amsterdam

Boys and women on the quay
Broken English in the street
Cold and famine sweeping south
Such a welcome still we meet
After half a year at sea
The cobblestones and snow beneath our feet
Were soft and sweet
Castaways from far and wide
Wrecked together in this town tonight
On every side

Living in a love town... we were hungry to a man
Living in a love town... in the heart of Amsterdam
Living in a love town... as the carnival began
Living in a love town...

After half a year at sea
The cobblestones and snow beneath our feet
Were soft and sweet
Saw the city shining bright
A beacon in this flooded countryside
We'll spend the night
Cast away from far and wide
Wrecked together in this town tonight
On every side

Living in a love town... we were hungry to a man
Living in a love town... in the heart of Amsterdam
Living in a love town... as the carnival began
Living in a love town...
