The Dutchman still wears wooden shoes His cap and coat are patched with the love that Margaret sewn in Sometimes he thinks he's still in Rotterdam He watches tugboats down canals and calls out to them when he thinks he knows the captain 'Til Margaret comes to take him home again Through the unforgiving streets that trip him though she holds his arm Sometimes he thinks that he's alone and calls her name Let us go the banks of the ocean Where the walls rise above the Zuiderzee Long ago, I used to be a young man But dear Margaret remembers that for me Windmills whirl the winter in She winds his muffler tighter they sit in the kitchen Some tea with whiskey keeps away the dew He sees her for a moment, calls her name she makes his bed up singing some old love song She learned it when the tune was very new He hums a line or two, they hum together in the night The Dutchman falls asleep and Margaret blows the candle out Let us go the banks of the ocean Where the walls rise above the Zuiderzee Long ago, I used to be a young man But dear Margaret remembers that for me
