French
Là, au milieu d’un port désert
Noyé de brumes passagères
Je m’éveille doucement

Là, au pied d’un navire endormi
Bercée par un rêve infini
Je m’éveille lentement

Amsterdam, Amsterdam
Tu es plus qu’un souvenir
Amsterdam, Amsterdam
Tu as tant à offrir

Amsterdam, Amsterdam
Abrite-moi sous ton toit
Amsterdam, Amsterdam
Tu es mon amour à moi

Là, le long d’un canal silencieux
Je vois un couple d’amoureux
Fatigués d’une nuit trop longue

Là, sous l’arche d’un pont démodé
Des oiseaux se sont réfugiés
Pour troubler le calme de l’onde

Amsterdam, Amsterdam
Tu es plus qu’un souvenir
Amsterdam, Amsterdam
Tu as vu tant de soupirs

Tu es belle
Tu brilles plus qu’une rivière de diamants
Les enfants du monde entier
Viennent jusqu’à toi pour s’aimer

Amsterdam, Amsterdam
Tu es plus qu’un souvenir
Amsterdam, Amsterdam
Tu as tant à offrir

Amsterdam
Abrite-moi sous ton toit
Amsterdam, Amsterdam
Tu es mon amour à moi

Translation
There, in the middle of a desert harbour
Passengers drowned in mist
I wake up gently

There, at the foot of a sleeping ship
Rocked by an endless dream
I wake up slowly

Amsterdam, Amsterdam
You are more than a memory
Amsterdam, Amsterdam
You have so much to offer

Amsterdam, Amsterdam
Shelter me under your roof
Amsterdam, Amsterdam
You have to me my love

There, along a quiet canal
I see a pair of lovers
Tired out from a night too long

There, under the arch of an old-fashioned bridge
Birds have taken refuge
To disrupt the calm of the wave

Amsterdam, Amsterdam
You are more than a memory
Amsterdam, Amsterdam
You have seen many sighs

You are beautiful
You shine more than a diamond necklace
The children of the whole world
Even come to you to love

Amsterdam, Amsterdam
You are more than a memory
Amsterdam, Amsterdam
You have so much to offer

Amsterdam
Shelter me under your roof
Amsterdam, Amsterdam
You have to me my love
