Lyrics
They come from the farms and the factories too
And they all soon forget who they are. And they all soon forget who they are.
The cares of today are soon washed away The cares of today are soon washed away
As they sit at a stool by the bar. As they sit at a stool by the bar.
The girl with green eyes in the Rolling Stones shirt The girl with green eyes in the Rolling Stones shirt
Doesn't look like she works on the land. Does not look like she works on the land.
The man at the end, he's a very good friend The man at the end, he's a very good friend
Of a man who sells cars second hand. Or a man who sells cars second hand.

Chorus: Chorus:
Down at the Red Rose Cafe in the Harbour Down at the Red Rose Cafe in the Harbor
There by the port just outside Amsterdam. There by the port just outside Amsterdam.
Everyone shares in the songs and the laughter. Everyone shares in the songs and the laughter.
Everyone there is so happy to be there. Everyone there is so happy to be there.

The salesmen relax with a few pints of beer The salesmen relax with a few pints of beer
As they try not to speak about trade. As they try not to speak about trade.
The poet won't write any verses tonight. The poet will not write any verses tonight.
He may sing a sweet serenade. He may sing a sweet serenade.
So pull up a chair and forget about life. So pull up a chair and forget about life.
It's a good thing to do now and then It's a good thing to do now and then
And if you like it here I have an idea And if you like it here I have an idea
Tomorrow let's all meet again. Tomorrow let's all meet again
