I wish I were in London,
Taxis honking,
Sirens swirling,
Nights lights dancing,
Bells a-ringing,
Street dogs howling,
Inner city, How

I wish I were in London,
Blackened sky packed,
Tight with wonder,
Trains a-rolling,
All night workers,
Office lamps bright,
Green in colour,

City roofs wet,
Under moonlight,
Fumes a-rising,
Pigeons hopping,
Stray cats hissing,
Foxes hunting,
In the bin bags,
Down the alleys,
In the doorways,
People sleeping,
Patrons stepping,
Over heartache,
Over Hard Times,
Flimsy poor lives,
In the gutter,
In a heartbeat,
How I wish I were in London.
