GUEST,Sandy Andina Lyr Req: zuider zee (The Dutchman) (14) RE: Lyr Req: zuider zee 16 Apr 02


Definitely a Michael Smith song--perhaps his most famous. He does it far differently from Goodman's version--as a slow moody ballad. But then again, he does everything differently. Some years ago, I wrote a parody of "The Dutchman" called "The Con Man." (An old ex-seaman in Holland becomes a retired Mafioso in New Jersey). It was pretty popular around the Chicago scene--and Smith told me it's the one parody of *anything* he can actually stand. When "The Sopranos" became popular just as I started performing again, I dragged it back out. I can post it on the database if permitted, or can send lyrics backchannel. All I ask is that you credit me when you perform it (and notify me if you want to record it)!
