Abstract

VERSE 1
Where the dikes of quaint old Holland,
Guard the city from the sea,
Stands a queer old-fashioned windmill,
And it seems to beckon me,
To that land of peace and romance,
Where the tulips bloom so fair,
To a little maid of Holland,
Who is waiting for me there.

CHORUS
It’s tulip time in Holland,
Two lips I know are lonely,
The sweetest lips in Holland,
Are blooming for me only.
I’d give the world if I could be,
Back there beside her
By the Zuider Zee,
It’s tulip time in Holland,
Two lips are calling me.
Me.

VERSE 2
When the springtime comes to Holland,
When the fragrant tulips grow,
It is like a spot from Heaven,
Just transported here below,
And in fancy I can see her
In that garden by the sea,
Where we strolled among the tulips,
Where she’s waiting now for me.

CHORUS
