BY THE SIDE OF THE ZUYDER ZEE (Bennett Scott (m) A J Mills (l) 1906) Gerald Adams - 1907 Florrie Forde - 1907 Maudi Darrell - 1907 Patti Stewart & Her Footwarmers - 1958 Ronnie Ronalde - 1961 Also recorded by: Reginald Dixon; Cor Steyn; Primo Scala's Accordion Band. By the flowing Zuyder Zee so blue, There's a little Dutch girl I love true; Of my little Gretchen dear I'm dreaming all day. She's a picture any one would choose, In her dainty frock and wooden shoes; I've seen other girls but still my heart is far away - By the side of the Zuyder Zee, Zuyder Zee, Zuyder Zee, There my Deitcher girl waits for me - only me! I've seen diamonds in Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Amsterdam, But there's not a diamond as bright as those eyes by the Zuyder Zee! I had such a feeling round my heart, When there came a time we had to part; >From my little Gretchen I was sailing away. As we stood upon the old Dutch shore, In her eyes of blue, big tears I saw; Standing on the big ship I could hear the wild waves say - By the side of the Zuyder Zee, Zuyder Zee, Zuyder Zee, There my Deitcher girl waits for me - only me! I've seen diamonds in Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Amsterdam, But there's not a diamond as bright as those eyes by the Zuyder Zee! Some day by the dear old Zuyder Zee, With my little Gretchen I shall be; In a cosy cot far from the big city's whirl. When the stars are peeping in the skies, We will sing the old Dutch lullabies; How I long to sail back to my little Dutch girl. By the side of the Zuyder Zee, Zuyder Zee, Zuyder Zee, There my Deitcher girl waits for me - only me! I've seen diamonds in Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Amsterdam, But there's not a diamond as bright as those eyes by the Zuyder Zee! (Contributed by Peter Akers - January 2016)
