  • Well I tried to settle down Fulham Broadway
    And I tried to make my home in Golders Green
    But I gotta get that train
    And go back home again
    Oh how I miss the folks back home in Willesden Green

    You know, I tried, I really tried to settle in this big city
    And I always thought I could make it all on my very own
    But there's one thing that keeps calling me
    To that little, that little semi-detached
    That's the folks, yeah, the folks back home
