London Bridge

  • I know the times the times are hard to bear
    It's hard to find someone to really care
    But before I went down and out
    Here's what I used to think about, think about

    London bridge is always fallin' down,
    But there it stood within the heart of town
    Reminding everyone of life behind and life to come

    The changes taking place are everywhere
    The centuries past have nothing to compare
    Where they stand, where they trip and fall
    Watch the writing on the wall, on the wall

    London bridge is fallin' down at last,
    And so another memory of the past
    Has fell beneath the blade, but soon the dead may be repaid

    I know things just can't evolve for all eternity
    The thoughts will leave, will never die, and now so you can see

    London bridge is finally fallin' down,
    It packed it up and shipped it outta town
    And though the horror's gone, the memory will linger on
    London bridge is finally fallin' down,
    It used to stand within the heart of town
    Reminding everyone of life behind and life to come
    London bridge is finally fallin' down Writer/s: DAVID GATES

  • Barry from New York, NcGotta love that Moog synthesizer. Back in 1969, the synthesizer was a novelty machine.
    It wasn't until the late 70s/early 80s when synths were abused by musicians worldwide.
