Greetings from the Atelier. Many apologies for my delay in weekly posting. I was in Amsterdam and am still working on a short travel log and story to accompany all the wonderful discoveries I made.
Thanks to any and all my first fans and readers, I appreciate your patience. 
In the meantime, I hope this blast from the past gets you up, dancing and smiling (I remember many nights blasting this song with my college roommate in between long study sessions). The sound never gets old. Enjoy! 
*Cheers from The Atelier

 

 

 

Amsterdam

Baby went to Amsterdam
She put a little money into travelling
Now it’s so slow, so slow
Baby went to Amsterdam
Four, five days for the big canal
Now it’s so slow, so slow
And I was heading up north
To a place that I know
Eating well, sleeping well
But still I was way, way out of line
Amsterdam was stuck in my mind
Oh, it’s a kind of stupid groove
That you can’t ignore
Oh, it’s a kind of natural fact
Sometimes you’re just left to be alone
Baby went to Amsterdam
She put a little money into traveling
Now it’s so slow, so slow
Baby went to Amsterdam
Four, five days for the big canal
Now it’s so slow, so slow
And I got to go away
To a place of my own
Working hard, fill my time
From that day on, till I hit the bed
Amsterdam was stuck in my head
Oh, it’s a kind of stupid groove
That you can’t ignore
Oh, it’s a kind of natural fact
Sometimes you’re just left to be alone
Baby went to Amsterdam
She put a little money into traveling
Now it’s so slow, so slow
Baby went to Amsterdam
Four, five days for the big canal
Now it’s so slow, so slow
Baby went to Amsterdam
She put a little money into traveling
Now it’s so slow, so slow
Baby went to Amsterdam
Four, five days for the big canal
Now it’s so slow, so slow, slow
