Lyrics

Here is London, giddy of London

Is it home of the free, or what?

Can you squeeze me Into an empty page of your diary And psychologically save me? I've got faith in you

I sense the power in the fingers Within an hour, the power Could totally destroy me Or it could save my life

Oh, here is London "Home of the brash outrageous and free" You are repressed But you're remarkably dressed, is it real?

And you're always busy, really busy Busy, busy, oh, oh, hairdresser on fire All around Sloane Square

And you're just so busy Busy, busy, busy scissors, ooh, oh Hairdresser on fire Only the other day

Was a client, over-cautious He made you nervous And when he said "I'm gonna sue you" Oh! I really felt for you

So, can you squeeze me Into an empty page of your diary And supernaturally change me? Change me, change, oh

Here in London "Home of the brash, outrageous and free" You are repressed but You're remarkably dressed, is it real?

And you're always busy Really busy, busy clippers Oh, oh, hairdresser on fire All around Sloane Square

And you're just too busy To see me, busy clippers Oh, oh, hairdresser on fire Only the other day
