VERSE  A, C#m, D, A, C, A, D, F#maj, Bm, E, A, C#m, D, A, C, G, A, D, F#maj, Bm

Outside my window 
Not long before sleep arrives 
They come with their sirens 
And they sweep away all the boys 
Busy draining the joy from their lives 
They never said their prayers out loud 
And while I'm dreaming 
There's a passing motor car 
That broadcasts a popular song 
And a girl appears to be saying 
"Do you think that I'm going to go far?" 


CHORUS: F, Am, Dm, D7, Gm, C, Bb, F 

Just look at me 
I'm having the time of my life 
Or something quite like it 
When I'm walking out and about 
In London's brilliant parade 

BRIDGE Am, D, Am, D, G, Bm, Em, G, Bm, Em :| play twice  Gm flat5, GM, Eb, Em flat 5
(Tabbed at the top)

she's one of those girls that you just can't place 
You feel guilty desiring such an innocent face 
But of course they knew that when they cast her 
Along with the red Routemaster 
And the film takes place in an MGB 
And a perfect re-creation of "The Speakeasy" 
Everybody looks happy and twisted 
Though she probably never existed 
For old times' sake 
Don't let me awake 






VERSE  A, C#m, D, A, C, A, D, F#maj, Bm, E, A, C#m, D, A, C, G, A, D, F#maj, Bm

I wouldn't want you to walk across Hungerford Bridge 
Especially at twilight  (slight pause)
Looking through the bolts and the girders 
Into the water below 
You'll never find your answer there 
They sounded the "all-clear" in the occidental bazaar 
They used to call Oxford Street 
Now the bankrupt souls in the city 
Are finally tasting defeat 



SECOND CHORUS: F, Am, Dm, D7, Gm, C, Bb, F, Gm, C, Bb, F

Don't look at me 
I'm having the time of my life 
Or something quite like it 
When I'm walking out and about 
In London's brilliant parade 
When I'm walking out and about 
In London's brilliant parade 


VERSE A, C#m, D, A, C, A, D, F#maj, Bm, E, A, C#m, D, A, C, G, A, D, F#maj, Bm

From the gates of St. Mary's, there were horses in Olympia 
And a trolley bus in Fulham Broadway 
The lions and the tigers in Regents Park 
Couldn't pay their way 
And now they're not the only ones  
At the Hammersmith Palais
In Kensington and Camden Town 
There's a part that I used to play; 
The lovely Diorama is really part of the drama, I'd say 

Repeat first Chorus [2x] 



Additionally there are 3 notes played at the beginning of this song and later after the
2nd chorus which I have left out. Easy to find but they are in the ear of the listener
and obscured a little by a cymbal.
