London Bridge, London Bridge

"It's only words, and words are all I have, to take your heart away." - lyrics by the BeeGees that I live by and strive to inculcate in life

london-bridge-london-bridge

London bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down.

London bridge is falling down, my fair lady.


The waves are a crashing way too high, way too high, way too high.

The waves are a crashing way too high, my fair lady.


Skin and bone have been torn, have been torn, have been torn.

Skin and bone have been torn, my fair lady.


Red has taken over the sea, over the sea, over the sea.

Red has taken over the sea, my fair lady.


Garbed in black we walk away, walk away, walk away.

Garbed in black we walk away, my fair lady.


Drink has spilled over the floor, over the floor, over the floor.

Drink has spilled over the floor, my fair lady.


Silent screams echo here, echo here, echo here.

Silent screams echo here, my fair lady.


Quietly we will wave goodbye, wave goodbye, wave goodbye.

Quietly we will wave goodbye, my fair lady.


Gently we will lower you down, lower you down, lower you down.

Gently we will lower you down, my fair lady.


The moon keeps rising every night, every night, every night.

The moon keeps rising every night, my fair lady.


Smiles have humbled my abode, my abode, my abode.

Smiles have humbled my abode, my fair lady.


Warmth has stumbled into the cold, into the cold, into the cold.

Warmth has stumbled into the cold, my fair lady.


Green has taken over the fields, over the fields, over the fields.

Green has taken over the fields, my fair lady.


Flesh has healed into scars, into scars, into scars.

Flesh has healed into scars, my fair lady.


The river rejoices in the sea, in the sea, in the sea.

The river rejoices in the sea, my fair lady.


London bridge is built again, built again, built again.

London bridge is built again, My fair lady.
