A RONDEL FOR ROLINDA
Remember our times in Amsterdam last year?
We had a great week, just the two of us
No fuss, as we took the train and the bus
Some of the things we saw were queer

We got lost, but we always say cheer
It didn’t matter, as we walked aimless
Remember our times in Amsterdam last year?
We had a great week, just the two of us

We chat and with beer, such cool atmosphere
And the cruise by the lake, that was a bonus
Of course, things they sold, they were madness
Walked a lot, good thing we got decent footgear
Remember our times in Amsterdam last year?
