De droom van Hadt-je-me-maar
"Hadt-je-me-maar", a famous Amsterdam tramp, dreams he has become a city councillor.
After a drive through Amsterdam in a carriage, "Hadt-je-me-maar", dressed as a gentleman, takes his place as city-councillor in the Amsterdam Municipal Council, where he is warmly applauded by a group of female admirers led by his landlady, but coolly received by the city hall officials. Alas, this is only a dream, as the tramp realizes when he wakes up in his untidy bed in his lodging-house.
