Streets Of London Lyrics

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 at his side
Yesterday's paper telling yesterday's news

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 to talkin' she just keeps right on walkin'
Carrying her home in two carrier bags

How can you tell me you're lonely
Say for you that the sun don't shine
Let me take you by the hand lead you through the streets of London
I'll show you something to make you change your mind

[ guitar ]
In the all night cafe at a quarter past eleven
Same old man sittin' there on his own
Looking at the world over the rim of his teacup
Each tea last an hour and he wanders home alone

Have you seen the old man outside the seaman's mission
Memo'y fading with the medal ribbons that he wears
In our winter city the snow cries so a little pity
For one more forgotten hero and the world that doesn't care

How can you tell me you're lonely...
I'll show you something I hope will change your mind
