很喜歡這首歌的歌詞,而那情景也不僅僅在倫敦。

--
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.
Hand held loosely at his side.
Yesterday's paper telling yesterday's news.

Chorus:
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.

Chorus:
In the all night cafe.
At a quarter past eleven, same old man is sitting there on his own.
Looking at the world.
Over the rim of his tea-cup, each tea lasts an hour.
Then he wanders home alone.

Chorus:
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.
