“…But you ain’t got nothing, you’re on the run
It’s too late now, cause you’re out there boy
You’ve got it made with the rest of the toys
Now you wish
you’d never left your home
You’ve got what you wanted
but you’re on your own
With the London boys
Now you’ve met the London boys.”
London Boys- David Bowie
“She came from Greece, she had a thirst for knowledge
She studied sculpture at Saint Martin’s College
That’s where I caught her eye
She told me that her Dad was loaded
I said “In that case I’ll have rum and coca-cola
She said “fine”
And then in 30 seconds time she said…”
“Now the radio stutters. snaps to life.
Some sour song that sets it right.
And when London falls
He’d like to call

And it’s up to you to fix it…”
“…Have you seen the old girl who walks to the streets of London,
dirt in her hair and her clothes just in rags?
She’s no time for talking, she just keeps right on walking,
Carrying here home in two carrier bags…”
The streets of London-The Beatles
Your girlfriend on the platform
With this really ragged notion that you’ll return
But she knows
That when he goes
He really goes
And do you think you’ve made
The right decision this time ?…”
“London’s burning! London’s burning!
All across the town, all across the night
Everybody’s driving with full headlights
Black or white turn it on, face the new religion
Everybody’s sitting ’round watching television!…”
London’s burning- The Clash
“Do you know what you’re looking for?
Streets of gold, fame and fortune?
You didn’t fancy working in a factory
But your mum and dad didn’t agree
You slept on Waterloo station at first
But now you’ve moved to a posher squat
You wonder where your next meal will come from
Still it’s better than living at home…”
