London Danny

Jez Lowe
London Danny is a real bad penny The one man time has told me I should fear For the girl you left behind, she said she would be mine So why did you have to come and show your face round here Chorus For she always said that time would make it right But now I always hear her sighing in the night And don't think I don't know, if you asked her then she'd go Ah but please now don't you take her from me, London Danny Well I've learned to listen for your name round town Whe people talk of your success in city life But I could never tell if she heard them talk as well Or rue the day she ever was a poor man's wife Chorus For she always said that time would make it right But now I always hear her sighing in the night And don't think I don't know, if you asked her then she'd go Ah but please now don't you take her from me, London Danny Well me' hands are black while yours are clean and clever There's ways you know to turn her pretty head Well its all that I can do when me' working day is through To let her heart beat me to sleep each night in bed Chorus For she always said that time would make it right But now I always hear her sighing in the night And don't think I don't know, if you asked her then she'd go Ah but please now don't you take her from me, London Danny Well London Danny you're a real bad penny The one man time has told me I should fear For the girl you left behind, she said she would be mine So why did you have to come and show your face round here Chorus For she always said that time would make it right But now I always hear her sighing in the night And don't think I don't know, if you asked her then she'd go Ah but please now don't you take her from me, London Danny
