There's No Place Like London

Album: Hullo! London Town (1986)
  • CHORUS:
    There's no place like London
    There's no place at all
    The East or the West End
    You end up in the best end
    There's no place like London
    And I've been around
    There's no place like London Town

    When you walk down the street,
    Feel the history under your feet
    From the top of St. Paul's
    To the old market stores
    All in all, it's my cup of tea

    CHORUS

    See them changing the guard
    When it's raining as hard as can be
    I don't care who you are
    You don't have to go far
    To get treated like royalty

    CHORUS

    Take Paris in the spring
    Take New York in the fall
    But I'd leave them behind
    For the best of them all

    There's no place like London
    There's no place at all
    The East or the West End
    You end up in the best end
    There's no place like London
    And I've been around
    There's no place like London
    London's Capital
    There's no place like London Town
