New Amsterdam
Elvis Costello


G Em C G
You're sending me tulips, mistaken for lilies,
G Em F D
You give me your lip after punching me silly,
G Em C G
You turned my head till it rolled down the brain drain,
G Em F D
If I had any sense now, I wouldn't want it back again.


G Bb Am G
New Amsterdam, it's become much too much,
G Bb Am G
Will I have the possession of everything she touches,
G Bb Am G
Till I step on the brake to get out of her clutches?
G Bb Am G
Can I speak Double Dutch to a real double duchess?


G Em C G
Down on the mainspring, listen to the tick tock,
G Em F D
Clock all the faces that move in on your block,
G Em C G
Twice shy and dog tired because you've been bitten,
G Em F D
Everything you say now sounds like it was ghost written.


G Bb Am G
New Amsterdam, it's become much too much,
G Bb Am G
Will I have the possession of everything she touches,
G Bb Am G
Till I step on the brake to get out of her clutches?
G Bb Am G
Can I speak Double Dutch to a real double duchess?


E E A E
Like, in London, they'll take you to heart after a little while,
E E C D C G D
Though I look right at home, I still feel like an exile.


G Em C G
Somehow I found myself down at the dockside,
G Em F D
Thinking about the old days of Liverpool and Rotherhithe,
G Em C G
Transparent people who live on the other side,
G Em F D
Living a life that is almost like suicide,


G Bb Am G
New Amsterdam, it's become much too much,
G Bb Am G
Will I have the possession of everything she touches,
G Bb Am G
Till I step on the brake to get out of her clutches?
G Bb Am G
Can I speak Double Dutch to a real double duchess?
