“Hello Amsterdam”


Here I'm not entirely
Yesterday don't matter to me
Goodbye Saskatchewan, hello Amsterdam
Here I am necessarily.

I trade on promise and belief
I am an angel and a thief
So rub your tears away, you pay so why not play?
Don't look for premise or relief.

Light as a feather
I shouldn't have to work so hard for
Not much pleasure
All these streets are filled with treasure.

I'm not looking for false charity
Another victim won't work for me
Mischief is what I got
You'd do well to laugh it off
Go on or leave it to me.

I decline if you offer up cash
In the words of the profits that's last
But the payday is coming on fast
