The Thames. Lyrics written circa 1986

lyrics

With you standing by the pier
Near you see the rivers
Watch the bits floating by you
In the murky waters
And the chattering and the spluttering
Found in the noise and the smog
That’s where they brew our favourite beer
And that’s where I first set eyes on you
Well that’s where

Down by the Thames
Old Man Thames
Down by the Thames
Old man

With you brushing out your hair
See the sun light dancing there
And watch your life floating by you
In the Murky waters flowed
The chattering and the spluttering
Found in a London pub
That’s where

Down by the Thames
Old Man Thames
Down by the Thames
Old man

With your face turned to the sun
Blowing, blowing with the thoughts of sin
Well, I took a boat beside you
And the murky waters flowed
And the chattering and the spluttering
Found on a wave of love……

Now it’s been many years
Though all the fighting and the tears
And I am still beside you
Like the murky water flowed

Old Man Thames

And the chattering and the spluttering
For ever like our love
Down by the Thames
Old Man Thames
Down by the Thames
Old Man Thames

That’s Where they brew our favourite beer
That’s Where I first set eyes on you
That’s where
I first set eyes on you
Brew our favourite beer
I first set eyes on you
I first set eyes on you
..

Independent artist, song creator and musician
KCJ RAR Project Retoons, recreating songs I wrote as a wannabe back in the 1970's and 80's. Now home recording guitars and virtual instruments to create classic rock numbers that never were; symphonic prog epics that could have been; and avant-garde psychedelic art rock grooves that surely fill a gap in music history today? Maybe not, but lots of fun! ... more
