Six Whiskies

It’s throwing out time
The sun hits my eyes
The sweet inspiration
Of Farringdon station

I’ve nowhere to be
I’m aimlessly free
Kicking the cans in
Paddington basin

Six whiskies in me
I stumble through this pretty city
I sing it until they arrest me
And I declare my undying love for you

West end my friend
Dance with me again
The drunks and their antics
The hopeless romantics

And there on the wind
A familiar ring
Half pence and farthings
Say the bells of St. Martins

Six whiskies in me
I stumble through this pretty city
I sing it until they arrest me
And I declare my undying love for you

Through all that we’ve shared
The stormy and fare
Our ages are showing
But the river keeps flowing

Still I’ve nowhere to be
I’m aimlessly free
Like all of those dole days
Down old Deptford Broadway

Six whiskies in me
I stumble through this pretty city
I sing it until they arrest me
And I declare my undying love for you
