Verse 1:
G                    (F)            (C) 
All across the town, all across the night
G                        (F)       (C)
Everybody's driving with full headlights
G                         (F)            (C)
Black or white turn it on, face the new religion
G                          NC
Everybody's sitting 'round watching television!

Chorus:
G        F            C       D
London's burning with boredom now!
G        F             C   D
London's burning, dial 99999!
G        F            C       D
London's burning with boredom now!
G        F             C   D
London's burning, dial 99999!

Verse 2:
    G                       (F)             (C)
I'm up and down the Westway, in an' out the lights
       G                     (F)       (C)
What a great traffic system - it's so bright
  G                             (F)       (C)
I can't think of a better way to spend the night
     G                    NC
Then speeding around underneath the yellow lights

Chorus x1

Verse 3:
G                              (F)            (C)
Now I'm in the subway, and I'm looking for the flat
G                             (F)              (C)
This one leads to this block, this one leads to that
    G                                  (F)           (C)
The wind howls through the empty blocks looking for a home
G
I run through the empty stone because I'm all alone
