Lyrics of Streets Of London

Have you seen the old man in the closed-down market kicking up the paper with his worn out shoes
In his eyes you see no pride and held loosely at his side
Yesterday's paper 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
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
Show you something to make you change your mind
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
Each tea last an hour then he wanders home alone
So how can you tell me you're lonely
Don't say for you that the sun don't shine
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
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
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
Show you something to make you change your mind
