Waterloo Sunset Lyrics

by Ray Davies

Dirty old river, must you keep rolling
Flowing into the night
People so busy, make me feel dizzy
Taxi light shines so bright

And I don't need no friends
As long as I gaze on Waterloo sunset
I am in paradise

Every day I look at the world
From my window
But chilly, chilly is the evening time
Waterloo sunset's fine

Terry meets Julie, Waterloo Station
Every Friday night
I am so lazy, don't want to wander
I stay at home at night

But I don't feel afraid
As long as I gaze on Waterloo sunset
I am in paradise

Every day I look at the world
From my window
Chilly, chilly is the evening time
Waterloo sunset's fine

Millions of people swarming like flies
'Round Waterloo underground
But Terry and Julie cross over the river
Where they feel safe and sound

And they don't need no friends
As long as they gaze on Waterloo sunset
They are in paradise

Dirty old river, must you keep rolling
Flowing into the night
People so busy, make me feel dizzy
Taxi light shines so bright

But Terry and Julie cross over the river
Where they feel safe and sound
As long as I gaze on Waterloo sunset
I am in paradise
Waterloo sunset's fine
