  • We can go drivin' in, on my scooter
    Uh, you know, just riding in London
    Alright

    I love my hometown as much as Motown, I love SoCal
    And you know I love Springsteen, faded blue jeans, Tennessee whiskey
    But something happened, I heard him laughing
    I saw the dimples first and then I heard the accent
    They say home is where the heart is
    But that's not where mine lives

    You know I love a London boy
    I enjoy walking Camden Market in the afternoon
    He likes my American smile
    Like a child when our eyes meet, darling, I fancy you
    Took me back to Highgate, met all of his best mates
    So I guess all the rumors are true
    You know I love a London boy
    Boy, I fancy you (ooh)

    And now I love high tea, stories from uni, and the West End
    You can find me in the pub, we are watching rugby with his school friends
    Show me a gray sky, a rainy cab ride
    Babe, don't threaten me with a good time
    They say home is where the heart is
    But God, I love the English

    You know I love a London boy
    I enjoy nights in Brixton, shortage in the afternoon
    He likes my American smile
    Like a child when our eyes meet, darling, I fancy you
    Took me back to Highgate, met all of his best mates
    So I guess all the rumors are true
    You know I love a London boy
    Boy, I fancy you

    So please show me Hackney
    Doesn't have to be Louis V up on Bond Street
    Just wanna be with you
    Wanna be with you
    Stick with me, I'm your queen
    Like a Tennessee Stella McCartney on the Heath
    Just wanna be with you (wanna be with you)
    Wanna be with you (oh)

    You know I love a London boy
    I enjoy walking SoHo, drinking in the afternoon (yeah)
    He likes my American smile
    Like a child when our eyes meet, darling, I fancy you (you)
    Took me back to Highgate, met all of his best mates
    So I guess all the rumors are true (yeah)
    You know I love a London boy (oh)
    Boy (oh), I fancy you (I fancy you, ooh)

    So please show me Hackney
    Doesn't have to be Louis V up on Bond Street
    Just wanna be with you
    I, I, I fancy you, oh
    Stick with me, I'm your queen
    Like a Tennessee Stella McCartney on the Heath
    Just wanna be with you (ooh)
    Wanna be with you
    I fancy you (yeah), fancy you
    Oh, ah Writer/s: Jack Antonoff, Joshua Karpeh, Mark Anthony Spears, Taylor Swift
