Pet Shop Boys - London (Genuine Piano Mix) Lyrics




We came from the far North
Summered in Crimea
Deserted the armed forces
Had to disappear
Made it to the free West
On a chartered flight
So we could see what
We trained to fight

We were in London
"Let's do it - let's break the law!"
We were in London
Tell it like it is
We were in London
Tell it like it is

Looking for hard work
Or credit card fraud
What do you expect from us?
We come from abroad
To get ourselves a new job
On a building-site
They work you so hard
But we trained to fight

We were in London
"Let's do it - let's break the law!"
We were in London
Tell it like it is
We were in London
"Let's do it - let's break the law!"
We were in London
Tell it like it is

My father fought in Afghanistan
His widow's pension ain't worth a damn
My mother works and goes home to cry
I want to live before I die

We were in London
"Let's do it - let's break the law!"
We were in London
Tell it like it is
We were in London
Tell it like it is

  1. RoofLight00

    Has become one the Pet Shop Boys songs I return to the most.

  2. Warren Alexander

    Such a beautiful song

  3. Giuliano Pesetti

    La Colonna Sonora Ideale per Londra, e per chi come me ricorda una magnifica vacanza (ed accoglienza) ...
    Miss You, London

  4. Daniel Bucker

    Fantastic. Pet Shop Boys helped me survive as a gay teenager.

    I've been a fan of PSB for over thirty years. Just when I couldn't be more fanatical about them, I read your comment and found even more love for their music. If only Neil and Chris knew, I'm sure they'd be proud of helping you survive.

    I love this. Made a remix myself in a similar style;

  8. Pochun Joe

    So beautiful. God...

  9. MrAleJohnny

    Disco 3 è un album fortemente sottovalutato: come tutti i loro lavori del resto

  10. J.s Legion

    I remember when I was 13 and I got Disco 3. No matter how many times I would listen to this song tears would roll down my face everytime. Now I'm 19 and tears still come down. Such a beautiful song..... <3 PSB forever :)

  11. walrustaurus

    Still gives me chills. Definitely a great version of the song and probably one of PSB's best work.

  12. fossaalta
