Well did you see the old man….. outside the Seamans mission
Memories are fading with the medals that he wears
Did you see the old man ……outside the Seamans mission
He's just another hero from this land that doesn't care

So how can you tell me your lonely
Don't say to me that your sun don't shine…..

And have you seen the old girl….Who walks the streets of London
She ain't got no money ……….and she's all dressed in rags
Have you seen the old girl…who walks the streets of London
She carries her old knickers in two….. polythene bags

So how can you tell me your lonely
Don't say to me that your sun don't shine

Well let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
I'll show you something………..you'll never understand
Let me take you by the hand and drag you through your streets of London
I'll show you something…….that'll make you fucking sick

Well let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
I'll show you something ………we'll never understand
Let me take you by the hand and drag you through the streets of London
I'll show you something ……that'll make you fucking sick.
