    It's about the city in Europe, and specifically about the marijuana cafe's there.

    I have studied this song. It definitely is one of my fav Sammy era songs.

    Try these links to "get into" this great song:

    "The bulldog" - (The staff are allways stoned, allong with most of the patrons)
    http://www.bulldog.nl/home.htm

    "Panama Red" - http://www.fortunecity.com/marina/co...y/273/hash.jpg

    "Don't have to worry 'bout the man" - (Sammy is saying that the police are very liberal, and they won't arrest you for smoking the bud.)

    Light 'em up! -
    Yeah!

    Lookin' good through the window
    Shinin' red and blue light, yeah
    A little thick in the bottom
    But still lookin' alright, yeah

    Got a pocket full o' money
    Got me a long night ahead
    Quick stop by the Bulldog
    Score me some Panama Red, yeah

    Oh, wham bam, oh Amsterdam (Yeah yeah yeah)
    Stone you like nothin' else can (Yeah yeah yeah)
    Woo! Hot damn, roll an Amsterdam (Yeah yeah yeah)
    She can't then nothin' else can

    Uh! Caught a plane outta Moscow
    Spent one cold night in Berlin, yeah
    It's a long hard way but I'm a-comin'
    Back again, yeah

    Oh, wham bam, oh Amsterdam (Yeah yeah yeah)
    Stone you like nothin' else can (Yeah yeah yeah)
    Yeah, come on up, roll an Amsterdam (Yeah yeah yeah)
    If she can't then no one else can

    Yeah!
    Yeow!

    (Guitar Solo)

    Ohhh!

    (Yeah yeah yeah) Woo-hoo
    (Yeah yeah yeah) Ooo-hoo
    (Yeah yeah yeah) Ooo-hoo

    Yeow!

    Oh, wham bam, oh Amsterdam (Yeah yeah yeah)
    Will stone you like nothin' else can (Yeah yeah yeah)
    Yeah, hot damn, roll an Amsterdam (Yeah yeah yeah)
    If she can't then no one else can (Yeah yeah yeah)
    Woo! Wham bam, oh Amsterdam (Yeah yeah yeah)
    Don't have to worry 'bout the man (Yeah yeah yeah)
    Woo! Hot damn, uh, burn an Amsterdam, yeah (Yeah yeah yeah)
    Stone me like nothin' else can (Yeah yeah yeah)

    Hope this helps!

    From 3-13 to 10-6 and NFC South Champs.....go Saints!

    The first stanza is about visiting the Redlight District where you can window shop for hookers.
