Streets Of London Lyrics

Streets Of London - Dana Winner

Written by:Ralph Mc Tell

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

Hands held loosely at his side

 

Yesterday's papers telling yesterday's news

 

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 talking

 

She just keeps right on walking

 

Carrying her home in two carrier bags

 

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

 

In the old night cafe at a quarter past eleven

 

The same old man sitting there on his own

 

Looking at the world over the rim of his teacup

 

Each tea lasts an hour and he wanders home alone

 

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 man

Outside the seaman's mission

 

Memory fading with the medal ribbons that he wears

 

In our winter city the rain cries a little pity

 

For one more forgotten hero

 

And a world that doesn't care

 

So how can you tell me you're lonely

 

And say for you that the sun don't shine yeah

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
