Eindhoven: The city of light

VERSE 1
G
Well I grew up, in a town called Eindhoven
C
It means the last farm, in the South of North Brabant
G
It is ok there, there are a few things to do
C
But I wouldn't live there too, no not if I were you
Em
But you should spend at least one night
D/F#
In the city of light
C
Let's go tonight, oh ho
D/F#
To the city of light

VERSE 2
If you want music, you won't have to walk very far
They get a lot of good bands there at the Effenaar
Or want to party now? Well there's the Dans Salon
Yes you can get your freak on, and maybe something more on
Be warned the girls are all a little uptight
In the city of light
But they're polite, oh ho
In the city of light
 
CHORUS
G                 C
Go, go, go - if you're around there, but
G                         C
Don't, don't, don't - settle down
Em                                   D/F#
There are many better places to be
 
VERSE 3
If you're a pothead, there are some coffee shops
You can get damaged, trying all kinds of crops
Or you're on a pub crawl, go down the Stratumseind
You'll have a whale of a time, with the people you find
And you'll very rarely ever see a fight
In the city of light
You'll be alright, oh ho
In the city of light
 
CHORUS (many, many, many, many....)
 
MIDDLE
G
You may get offered 
Em
A fancy job at Philips
G
You may decide that
C
The living standards are so good
G
You may get married
Em
To a nice girl named Yvette
G
You may be happy
D/F#
But in years you will regret it
 
Repeat VERSE 2

CHORUS
