Streets Of London

Original and similar lyrics
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.

Streets Of London

Cardigans
Streets of London Ralph McTell 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 by 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 I'll 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. N the all night café at a quarter past eleven Same old man is sitting there on his own. Looking at the world over the rim of his teacup, Each tea last an hour, and he wander home alone. Have you seen the old man outside the seaman's mission, Memory fading with the metal 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.

Streets Of London

Roger Whittaker "Live"
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 by his side Yesterday's papers 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 I'll 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. In the all night café at a quarter past eleven Same old man is sitting 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, Memory fading with the metal 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.

Motherless Child

ERIC CLAPTON "From The Cradle"
If I mistreat you girl, I sure don't mean no harm. If I mistreat you girl, I sure don't mean no harm. Well, I'm a motherless child; I don't know right from wrong. Please tell me pretty mama, honey where'd you stay last night? Please tell me pretty mama, honey where'd you stay last night? Well, you didn't come home till the sun was shining bright. I had to go so far girl to get my ham bones boiled. Had to go so far girl to get my ham bones boiled. Well, he's had a lotta women, gonna let my ham bones burn. Well, I did more for you, girl, than your daddy ever done. Well, I did more for you, girl, than your daddy ever done. Well, I give you my jelly, he ain't give you none. And when you see two women, always running hand in hand. When you see two women, always running hand in hand. You can bet your bottom dollar, one got the other one's man. Lord, I'm going to the river, get me a tangled rocking chair. I'm going to the river, get me a tangled rocking chair. And if the blues overtake me, gonna rock away from here.

Johnny Come Lately

THE POGUES "Pogue Mahone"
(Steve Earl) I'm an American, boys, and I've come a long way, Born and bred in the USA So listen up close, I've got something to say Boys, I'm buying this round Well it took a little while, but we're in this fight And we ain't going home 'til we've done what's right We're gonna drink Camden Town dry tonight, If I have to spend my last pound When I first got to London it was pourin' down rain Met a little girl in the field canteen Painted her name on the nose of my plane Six more missions, I'm gone Well I asked if I could stay and she said that I might Then the warden came around yelling 'Turn out the lights' Death rainin' out of the London night We made love 'til dawn [Chorus:] But when Johnny Come Lately comes marching home With a chest full of medals and a G.I. loan They'll be waitin' at the station down in San Antone When Johnny comes marching home My P-47 is a pretty good ship And she took a round comin' cross the channel last trip I was thinkin' 'bout my baby and letting her rip Always got me through so far Well they can ship me all over this great big world But I'll never find nothing like my North End girl I'm taking her home with me one day, sir Soon as we win this war [Chorus] Now my grandaddy sang this song Told me about London when the Blitz was on How he married grandma and brought her back home A hero thoughout his land Now I'm standing on a runway in San Diego A couple Purple Hearts and I move a little slow There's nobody here, maybe nobody knows About a place called Vietnam [Chorus]

Our Lady Of Sorrows

MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE
We could be perfect one last night, And die like star crossed lovers when we fight. And we can settle this affair, If you would shed your yellow. Take my hand and then We'll solve the mystery of laceration gravity, This riddle of revenge. Please understand that it has to be this way and Stand Up fucking tall, Don't let them see your back and Take My fucking hand, And never be afraid again. We've only got one chance to put things at an end, And cross the patron saint of switchblade fights. You said, We're not celebrities, We spark and fade, They die by threes. I'll make you Understand, And you can trade me for an apparation Stand Up fucking tall, Don't let them see your back and Take My fucking hand, And never Trust. You said, who put the words in your head? Oh how wrong we were to thinking That immortality meant never dying. [3]
