Story

City of London, from the album 'City sounds Night and day.'

Lyrics

Allison waits for the boy next door and travels by train to a busy store. She makes her way through a market fayre then she heads on down to the City Square and she works all day with the staff on the basement floor. The town hall clock that's covered in grime can still be heard when it starts to chime A vendors proud with his brand new shoes as he cries to the folk with the morning news and the Station man says the trains are running on time. Listen to the news, take a river cruise. Hear the children cry, see the world go by. Allison runs a department store, from 9am till half past four. People wait by the door each day and they amble round in the same old way, but they never know what they'll really looking for. An early train is leaving town, a Postman brings all the mail bags down. The Council men clear the garbage bins, while a Florist smiles as her work begins and the streets get cleaned as the rain starts beating down. Listen to the news, take a river cruise. Hear the children cry, see the world go by.
