THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE LONDON
 
div
 
English songs are now forgotten. Every one I know
Thinks that to the land of cotton he must go
Some for Dixie Land are sighing, some for Alabam are crying
Others want to live and die in Ohio
I don't want they're Dixie Land or they're Alabam
I don't know what Idaho and I don't care a... little bit.

Chorus: There's no place like London
There's no place like... good old London's city
Where the girls are young and pretty
And the boys are gay, hip, hip, hooray
I don't want to go to USA. There's no place like London
The town that never wears a frown
So Ohio I'm not a-going, I can do my Ohiowing
Way down in London Town.


Where the lights of Broadway dazzle
Hear the Yankee crow
'This Beats old London to a frazzle, gee you're slow
Guess you're little town you're Wapping
Just wants picking up and dropping
In the corner of a shopping Broadway mall.'
With their bright illuminations, millions of lamps
New York City licks creation, but I'll bet for licking stamps,

Chorus: There's no place like London
There's no place like... good old London's city
Where the girls are young and pretty
And the boys are gay, hip, hip, hooray
I don't want to go to USA. There's no place like London
The town that never wears a frown
Cowboy shooting may be thrilling
Motor buses do our killing, way down in London Town.


Chorus: There's no place like London
There's no place like... good old London's city
Where the girls are young and pretty
And the boys are gay, hip, hip, hooray
I don't want to go to USA. For there's no place like London
The town that never wears a frown
Yankee girls may have more hustle
But our girls can show more fringenet way down in London Town.
