Paroles The Show

Le - Par .

Let me set the scene, Saturday night
The line for the club is ruining my high
I tell my mates, "Lads, this queue's for me"
Come on some, another hour, we'll be in
I said, "I spend enough of my life just waiting in line"
And I won't let another split second go by
I take a stroll 'round London town
Just me on my own, see how it plays out
So I take to the streets, just me and my lonesome
Thirty-pound richer, gave a tenner to a homeless man
An individual who's found it hard to formulate a plan
God knows I can relate to that, I can relate to that

And I'll carry on moving through London town
Just cruising 'til the lights go down
Yeah, I'll carry on moving through London town, yeah

And I walk around these city streets
With my headphones blaring
I barely got the ground beneath my feet
The city's acting out another play for me
And I think I will stay in my drunken haze
I watch the show for free, I watch the show for free

There's a lady in the street
Asking people not to speak too loudly 'cause
All the lads are actin' rowdy
The clubs are closed and the crowd's departed
And there's cabs queuing up 'round the corner
Kebab shop lights, balloon man stories
It's one for five, three for a tenner
They're the perfect way to end your bender
Couple lads on the sidewalk arguing
Alcohol fumes, plus adrenaline
It's a combination that'll never win
First come police, then the ambulance
Said first come police, then the ambulance

And I'll carry on moving through London town
Cruising 'til the lights go down
Yeah, I'll carry on moving through London town, yeah

And I walk around these city streets
With my headphones blaring
I barely got the ground beneath my feet
The city's acting out another play for me
And I think I will stay in my drunken haze
I watch the show for free, I watch the show for free

'Cause sometimes you see a world that you have never seen
The good, the bad, the ugly and somewhere in between
Well, these nights will highlight the beauty you don't notice
In a world that's hardly coping
We just keep on hoping, we just keep on

Walkin' around these city streets
With our headphones blaring
Barely got the ground beneath our feet
The city's acting out another play for me
And I think I will stay in my drunken haze
I watch the show for free, I watch the show for free

I watch the show for free

I watch the show for free
