Streets of London



Have you seen the old man in the closed down market,
kicking up the papers with his worn out shoes?
In his eyes you see no pride hand held loosely by his side
yesterday papers telling yesterday's news.

Refrain

So how can you tell me you're lonely
and say for you that the sun don't shine
let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of london
I'll show you something to make you change your mind.

Have you seen the old girl who walks the streets of London,
dirt in her hair and her clothes in rags?
She's no time for talkin' she just keeps on walkin',
carrying her home in two carrier bags.

Refrain

In the all night cafe at a quarter past eleven
same old man sitting there on his own,
looking at the world over the rim of his tea cup
and each tea lasts an hour and wanders home alone.

Refrain

Have you seen the old man outside the seaman's mission,
memory fading with the medal ribbons that he wears?
And in our winter city the rain cries a little pity
for one more forgotten hero and a world that doesn’t care.

Final Refrain
