Frank Turner The Ladies of London Town LyricsThere抯 so many beautiful girls in here tonight,
I can hardly stand it.
Where do they go during the day?
Who the hell do they go home with at the end of the night?
I don抰 understand it.
They never go home with me.
You dance as if you抮e hours away from death,
You抮e wearing too much make-up and showing too much flesh,
And you smile a smile to take away my breath,
Because tonight, and only tonight, you know you抮e the best.
The ladies of London town
Go flowing through these streets like water
Running little streams down to the river.
They wash the dirty ground, they sweep me off my feet,
But like an English summer, they抣l soon be gone forever.
I抳e seen you trawling Camden at 4am,
Outside of the clubnight,
Deciding whose house will hold a free-for-all.
I抳e followed you back to mansions and I抳e met all your friends
Under the streetlights
But I can never recall what you抮e called.
You dance, you sweat,
Your glance is met,
And you hold my gaze a bit,
And pretend you never did,
And I抦 left standing on my own.
The ladies of London town throw one last glance over their shoulders,
Blow a kiss, and then they抮e gone forever.
