Wendy James – London’s Brilliant (Album Version)

Now he’s getting fucked silly somewhere in Piccadilly
Hung up on a poster on a wall
Everbody’s moaning and complaining
And a cool profile down Ladbroke Grove
Don’t let me grow up to fail and fall

One day, one day And I know one day, one day…
You could wake up in a doorway
London’s brilliant when it’s raining
But I’d rather wake up in a doorway somewhere
Still digging up the bones of Strummer and Jones

I didn’t want to be some satellite clown
It’s going to be…
But he couldn’t raise a spark in the dark in Hyde Park
And that’s not all
Cause in the long run
Found the Dennis the Menace of Little Venice
Everbody’s moaning and complaining
Love me silly
So I went up to London cause I heard it’s falling down

London’s dismal and divine
With a bite and a bark, he tried to make his mark
London’s brilliant when it’s raining
Well the night’s got chilly and he swore he’d
I’ll probably be someone
Mine eyes have seen the gory faces of those bitter men
It’s going to be…
One day, one day And I know one day, one day…
Every night before I closed my eyes
He said I could be a little Madam in Mayfair
London’s brilliant!
Won’t make it no more
And their bawdy talk
London’s dismal and divine
I’d say a prayer to my desires
Revolutionary days were sadly over
If I must grow up at all
