Allen, Lily - LDN Lyrics




Riding through the city on my bike all day
Cause the filth took away my license
It doesn't get me down and I feel OK
Cause the sights that I'm seeing are priceless

Everything seems to look as it should
But I wonder what goes on behind doors
A fella looking dapper, but he's sitting with a slapper
Then I see it's a pimp and his crack whore

You might laugh you might frown
Walkin' round London town

[Chorus]
Sun is in the sky oh why oh why ?
Would I wanna be anywhere else
Sun is in the sky oh why oh why ?
Would I wanna be anywhere else

When you look with your eyes
Everything seems nice
But if you look twice
you can see it's all lies

There was a little old lady, who was walking down the road
She was struggling with bags from Tesco
There were people from the city having lunch in the park
I believe that it's called al fresco
Then a kid came along to offer a hand

But before she had time to accept it
hits her over the head, doesn't care if she's dead
Cause he's got all her jewelery and wallet

You might laugh you might frown
walking round London town

[Chorus]
Sun is in the sky oh why oh why?
Would I wanna be anywhere else
Sun is in the sky oh why oh why?
Would I wanna be anywhere else

When you look with your eyes
Everything seems nice
But if you look twice
you can see it's all lies

Life, yeah that's city life, yeah that's city life, yeah that's city life
Life, yeah that's city life, yeah that's city life, yeah that's city life

[Chorus x2]
Sun is in the sky oh why oh why?
Would I wanna be anywhere else
Sun is in the sky oh why oh why?
Would I wanna be anywhere else

[x2]
When you look with your eyes
Everything seems nice
But if you look twice
You can see it's all lies

  15. STUDY GCSE

    this song still slaps

  16. Mabiony

    This is a great new wave of british polyrythmic death unblackened hardcore christian heavy metal!

  17. Mabiony

    I listen to death metal. This is now officially my guilty pleasure song.

  18. somercet1

    Isn't this the person who called Brits racists for voting Conservative, but allegedly lives in a very white part of the UK? Funny, because the (only) song (of hers I know) is about walking around an awful, ugly London, only made bearable by constantly hallucinating.

  19. bellinghammond

    fuck off lilly

    Benjamin Nash

    You came to a video from 2008 to comment that and you couldn't even spell her name right?

    bellinghammond

    @Benjamin Nash you butt in to defend a dim-witted communist "Progressive™" over a spelling error from an indifferent critic?

  20. Simina

    We use this in Britain to explain Boris’ lies.❤️

    Joshua Simpson

    I see I'm not the only one here after Lily had a massive tantrum about her party losing

    Simina

    Joshua Simpson HAHAHAHH😂😂

  21. Silver Oasis

  26. Gary Doyle

    Totally weird fked up girl but she had some quality tunes out.. very few singers can sing with their own accents but this girl did it PERFECTLY

  27. Ward Walter Warend

    00:00 sounds like you're just using some keywords. You don't know anything about music, do you?

  28. Ireallyreally Hategoogle

    What does LDN means?

    Tunaman69 E

    Ireallyreally Hategoogle London

  29. Brian Gallant

    This senior American loves British pop singers like Lily Allen. Similar bands as The Like ,Would you love me tomorrow (great song)  or walk of shame  or he's not a boy are new versions of classics. Samantha Fish rocks too!!

  30. Edney Simon Paul

    sher - pria - shun

  31. Fxxz

    We British people can smile and say the worst things ever.

  32. Chechi R

    love the end!!

  33. Charles Baker

    Now as much as lilly will disagree this is what years of labour and new labour control will do to a city

  34. prxncessF xo

    you think london was a shithole back then? oh just wait

  35. Jacob

    Its super annoying when you find a great song, then forget it exists, then remember a few words from the song, and have it take you like 3 weeks to find the song

    Limochsky

    Jacob if it happens just go on google and look up “lyrics (whatever the words you remember are)”

  36. RW NU

    This is exactly what immigration has done to London. Well done lily...well done.

    yusuf

    RW NU because Victorian London was perfect? You just sound so stupid

    EYELASHBUTANEILISH X

    Lmao lily is a labour supporter don't think she'd agree with your racist comments

    1dogissky

    If British people decided to stay in the UK instead of invading others maybe you wouldn’t be complaining.

  37. _ nat*alia!

    Cómo? Natalia Lafourcade le copiaba a esta chica y yo ni en cuenta

  38. Rosida Andriyana

    The spanish assholes invaded philipine, biggest evil. look at Louvre Museum in France😉 liar nobody believes you

  39. super larisaø

    this remember me of são paulo so bad (im brazilian btw)

  40. Shaun Collins

    she ever sing normal? sounds awful

    Katrina B

    This IS singing normal. Imagine being so used to Americanised singing that you think someone singing in their native English accent is awful. Tragic.

    Jalus

    Shaun Collins ok Shaun, don’t remember anyone asking you

    EYELASHBUTANEILISH X

    Jalus But..you asked a question so they answered

  41. Camila Cuevas

    I HATE YOU FOR BRAKING AMY,S HEART BUT THANKS GOD YOU ARE IN JAIL NOW

    xxmessymindxx

    Ummm are you ok?

  42. Max Wei

    有没有人注意到45“的地方背景显示了唱片店是”TOUGH GRADE”,其实我觉得是故意的,肯定是“ROUGH TRADE”! 根据目测,应该就是在Notting Hill的Rough Trade West店。does anyone notice the 45" background showed the vinyl store's name is "TOUGH GRADE", which i guess "ROUGH TRADE", it must mean it! From the appearance it should be the Rough Trade West in 130 Talbot Rd, Notting Hill 哈哈

  43. I accidentally made a channel

    When you used to listen to this song when you were younger and you didn’t really listen to the lyrics.


    Me now: this is abit deep but so true

  44. Francis

    Tb to when the lyrics were "pimp and his crack whore"

  45. Pablo Orellana

    Love her omg

  46. shapes

  47. Dulce Evelyn Esparza

    Hasta ahora encontré una de las canciones que me ponen feliz. ❤

  53. The Jaded Wolf

    Topper shots

    Still a great song

  54. wack jilliams

    As a Londoner, this video perfectly captures what tourists think of London, and what it really is.

    VION

    The video clip is inaccurate. There are no muslims, mosques, halal food and violence on Whites.

    Army G

    Is that kind of ugly? I mean with all respect, i`m from México and I really want to visit London someday. Grettings!

    wack jilliams

    Army G greetings! By no means is London a bad city. London has great places which are in truth, beautiful. However like all city’s there are a lot of bad parts in London. But all I am saying is, people don’t realise there are bad parts of London, they assume the whole city is nice. When it’s not.

    wack jilliams

    VION very true!

  55. jamie Harrison

    You might laugh, you might frown
    Walkin' round London town

    [Chorus]

    [Bridge]
    Life, yeah, that's city life (Angel, Dalston, Stockwell)
    Yeah, that's city life (Clapton, Soho, Ladbroke Grove)
    Yeah, that's city life
    Life, yeah, that's city life (Camden, Brixton, Putney)
    Yeah, that's city life (Tottenham, Chiswick, Old Kent Road)
    Yeah, that's city life

    You can see it's all lies, lies, lies...
