Why has no one done this, Underground or Within You? They are from a film with The Muppets, but I still believe that they are among Bowies best songs of that period?

And he yells to the cook with his arms open wide Am Em E Hey, bring me more fish throw it down by my side F E And he wants so to belch but he's too full to try Dm E Am So he stands up and laughs and he zips up his fly Am Em In the port of Amsterdam you can see sailors dance F E Paunches bursting their pants grinding women to porch Am Em They've forgotten the tune that their whiskey voice croaked Dm E Am Splitting the night with the roar of their jokes C G E And they turn and they dance and they laugh and they lust Am Em E Till the rancid sound of the accordion bursts F E And then out of the night with their pride in their pants Dm E Am And the sluts that they tow underneath the street lamps Am Em In the port of Amsterdam there's a sailor who drinks F E And he drinks and he drinks and he drinks once again Am Em He'll drink to the health of the whores of Amsterdam Dm E Am Who've given their bodies to a thousand other men C G E Yeah, they've bargained their virtue their goodness all gone Am Em E For a few dirty coins well he just can't go on F E Throws his nose to the sky and he aims it up above Dm E Am And he pisses like I cry on the unfaithful love Am Em F E Am E Am In the port
