Amsterdam Transfers

These canals are full of fish?!       [Apsley ]

Said the surgeon to the nurse       [Roland ]

Yes, fine for bobsledding!       [Arnold the Sly Ape ]

Not worth a curse       [loaf ]

take a stroll to the bright red lights       [Si ]

The registrar replied       [loaf ]

In a thick Dutch accent       [Apsley ]

Passing underneath a bridge       [loaf ]

With a kind of rolling gait       [Apsley ]

We dragged the sodden bedding       [Roland ]

From noon 'til late       [Apsley ]

Take your chances on the wall of death       [(RT) ]

The Vincent then intoned       [Apsley ]

In a thick Dutch accent       [(trad) ]

We began to have some fears       [Apsley ]

Unfounded, yet intense       [loaf ]

(As they are when in Reading),       [Apsley ]

Devoid of common sense       [loaf ]

Take me from behind the sofa       [Apsley ]

Before the dyke gives way       [loaf ]

In a thick Dutch torrent       [Apsley ]
