GOOD-BYE LONDON TOWN
 
div
 
Two friends of ours who never used to leave without a tear
This good old town with all it's charm, for sadly twice a year
On business to the country they would wend their weary way
And as they'd leave the station you could hear them softly say,

Chorus: 'Good-bye to you old London Town
Farewell to you old friend
My heart belongs to you old pal
No matter where I land
I'll be true to you old pal
There's not the slightest doubt
For when you leave old London Town
You're only camping out'

It always made them feel so sad when they would have to go
The thought of what they'd miss while gone would always pain them so
They'd miss their pals, miss their gals, and miss those parties gay
I tell you I don't blame the lads when leaving they would say,

Chorus: 'Good-bye to you old London Town
Farewell to you old friend
My hearts belong to you old pal
No matter where I land
I'll be true to you old pal
There's not the slightest doubt
For when you leave old London Town
You're only camping out.'
