With a dark and rolling sea
I keep walking through this cold hard town
I could use a place to stay
If I could beg, steal, or borrow
I'd be leaving London tomorrow
Up at dawn to change my shirt
Then it's over to American Express
No, she didn't send one line
Last night the Troubadour
And I sang a song she knows quite well
To make up another song
