Lyrics

I been waiting in the airport bar for hours
I been wondering if they're gonna make me drink all day
Last call calling on a non-stop back to the heartland
Calling on your getaway

Every day I'm trying to slide by on kodachrome kisses and headlines
Did I tell you that I wish you were here?
invisible man, catch me stumbling out of the underground
I just want to disappear


London is calling/everybody cut & run
come see what drink and the devil have done
somebody's falling/did they make you give up your gun?
and I might not reach you in time

midnight rider on the Jubilee down to the high street
rule brittannia/show you how to rise and fall
and I remember the 4th of July up on Hampstead Heath alone
ain't no rocket's red glare/don't you know that nobody cares about
another lost ugly American in this town

London is calling/everybody cut & run
come see what drink and the devil have done
somebody's falling/did they make you give up your gun?
and I might not reach you in time


and from the corner of the Marble Arch back home to your rolling fields
a soapbox preacher is reaching out
and you've been lonely and you've been lost/I know it's true
but every american girl thinks she's run out of time


London is calling/everybody cut & run
come see what drink and the devil have done
somebody's falling/did they make you give up your gun?
and I might not reach you in time

  • Duration: 00:04:15
  • Played: 128

The sound of one American alone in London on the 4th of July, with nothing but Wurlitzer, Hammond B3, backing vocalists and the bells of Big Ben to keep him company. Oh - and guitars, lots of guitars. And a quick, mostly-legal visit from James Brown in the bridge.
