The lyrics to my favorite cover by Greg Laswell - London By Night. Great song, my new lullaby.
London by night is a wonderful sight There is magic abroad in the air I’m often told that the streets turn into gold When the moon shines on Circus and Square
Deep in the dark that envelops the park There’s romance in each cigarette glow Down by the Thames, lights that sparkle like gems Seem to wink at each girl and her beau
Up comes the moon when the city’s asleep He’s not alone, for it seems Somewhere up there stands an angel to keep her watch While each Londoner dreams
My love and I saw the sun leave the sky Then we kissed in the fast-fading light Most people say they love London by day But lovers love London by night.
