Give My Love to London

This song is by Marianne Faithfull and appears on the album Give My Love to London (2014).

Give my love to London
Say I'll be there soon
Meet me in Piccadilly
And we'll dance by the light of the moon
Dance by the light of the moon, boys
Dance by the light of the moon

I'll visit all the places
I used to know so well
From Maida Vale to Chelsea
Paradise to hell
Paradise to hell, boys
Paradise to hell

Skeletons are turning
Twisting in the wind
That whips the tattered flags
Along the streets of Kensington
Hell on earth is burning
In the streets of Kensington

The river's running bloody
The Tower's tumbling down
I'm singing "Pirate Jenny"
While the Black Ship's bearing down
Jenny's hating, breaking heart
Sure makes a lonesome sound

Tonight I'll watch the city
Burning fiery bright
Their kindness out of pity
Will not get them through the night
Chiswick's rather pretty
In the sacrificial light

And if I was to die then
I wouldn't really care
'Cause I'd wake up in the morning
And I wasn't really there
Yeah, I'd open up my eyes and find
I really wasn't there

So give my love to London
Tell 'em I'll be there soon
Meet in Piccadilly
And we'll dance by the light of the moon
Dance by the light of the moon, boys
Dance by the light of the moon

Dance by the light of the moon, boys
Dance by the light of the moon
