I only have to close my eyes
And visions of a love arise
Changed though she may be
In dreams I'll always see
My London as the daylight dies

Street lamps aglow
And news boys calling
City I know
With twilight falling
Deep in my heart I keep recalling
The London I love

Small cosy bars
And cheerful greeting
Long lines of cars
And lovers meeting
Under the stars
A heart is beating
The London I love

Breathless and fast
The crowd hurries past
There's a glow in the London sky
Velvety dark
The trees in the park
Touch my heart, and I don't know why

Mayfair hotels
Their windows beaming
Chiming of bells
The river gleaming
You are my dream
I'm always dreaming
The London I love

Bright coloured lights
Palladium nights
And a world that was always gay
All you have been
Will stay ever green
In my heart till another day

Laughter and song
And swing doors turning
When will these things
Be more than yearning? 
Come back, my world
With bright lights burning
The London I love
