    Waterloo Sunset

    Dirty old river, must you keep rolling
    Flowing into the night
    People so busy, make me feel dizzy,
    Taxi light shines so bright
    But I don’t need no friends

    As long as I gaze on Waterloo sunset
    I am in paradise
    Every day I look at the world from my window,
    But chilly, chilly is the evening time
    Waterloo sunset’s fine

    Terry meets Julie,
    Waterloo station, every Friday night
    But I am so lazy, don’t want to wander,
    I stay at home at night
    But I don’t feel afraid

    As long as I gaze on Waterloo sunset
    I am in paradise
    Every day I look at the world from my window,
    But chilly, chilly is the evening time
    Waterloo sunset’s fine

    Millions of people,
    Swarming like flies round Waterloo underground,
    But Terry and Julie cross over the river
    Where they feel safe and sound
    And they don’t need no friends

    As long as they gaze on Waterloo sunset,
    They are in paradise
    Waterloo sunset’s fine
