Rain on a tin roof
In the middle of Amsterdam
And I am trying the very best that I can
To be brave, to be wise
To be the free-spirited child
I know that I am

But there is something in the air
And I can't sleep tonight
In this 21 person dorm
Something just ain't right
It just ain't right

And I am worried about the fighting in Iraq
I really am
But I'm busy getting high in Amsterdam
And I am worried about the children
Who are starving in Sudan
But I'm eating magic brownies in Amsterdam

And I am a worrier
What have I achieved?
I am a good person
Or so I had believed
But now I am worrying
That I am too naive
To change the world

There is something in the air
And I can't sleep tonight
In this 21 person dorm
Something just ain't right
It just ain't right

Because I'm worried about the ozone
And the destruction of nature by man
But I'm blowing smoke all over Amsterdam
And I'm worried about the people
Being brainwashed by Saddam Hussein
But I'm frying out my very own brain

And I am a worrier
What have I achieved?
I am a good person
Or so I had believed
But now I am worrying
That I am too naive
To change the world

Rain on a tin roof
In the middle of Amsterdam
And I am trying the very best that I can
Rain on a tin roof
In the middle of Amsterdam
And I am trying the very best that I can
Rain on a tin roof
In the middle of Amsterdam
And I am trying, I am trying
I am trying all I can
I am trying, trying, I am
I am trying, I am
