And you're feeling so proud,

'Cause you're such a success,

And the whole wide world is on your side, hey hey.

Twenty-four inch TV screen?

More than you liked poverty?

Life is easier, so much easier,

Life is easier now.


Oh Mr. Pleasant, how is Mrs Pleasant?

With another young man,

A Well Respected Man


Cause he gets up in the morning,

And he goes to work at nine,

And he comes back home at five-thirty,

Gets the same train every time.

Cause his world is built round punctuality,

It never fails.


And he’s oh, so good,

And he’s oh, so fine,

And he’s oh, so healthy,

In his body and his mind.

He’s a well respected man about town,

Doing the best things so conservatively.


And his mother goes to meetings,

While his father pulls the maid,

And she stirs the tea with councilors,

While discussing foreign trade,

And she passes looks, as well as bills

At every suave young man


Cause he’s oh, so good,

And he’s oh, so fine,

And he’s oh, so healthy,

In his body and his mind.

He’s a well respected man about town,

Doing the best things so conservatively.


And he likes his own backyard,

And he likes his fags the best,

Cause he’s better than the rest,

And his own sweat smells the best,

And he hopes to grab his fathers loot,

When pater passes on.


Cause he’s oh, so good,

And he’s oh, so fine,

And h’es oh, so healthy,

In his body and his mind.

Hes a well respected man about town,

Doing the best things so conservatively.


And he plays at stocks and shares,

And he goes to the regatta,

And he adores the girl next door,

Cause he’s dying to get at her,

But his mother knows the best about

The matrimonial stakes.


Cause he’s oh, so good,

And he’s oh, so fine,

And he’s oh, so healthy,

In his body and his mind.

Hes a well respected man about town,

Doing the best things so conservatively.


Waterloo Sunset


Dirty old river, must you keep rolling

Flowing into the night

People so busy, makes me feel dizzy

Taxi light shines so bright

But I don't need no friends

As long as I gaze on Waterloo sunset

I am in paradise


Every day I look at the world from my window

But chilly, chilly is the evening time

Waterloo sunset's fine


Terry meets Julie, Waterloo station

Every Friday night

But I am so lazy, don't want to wander

I stay at home at night

But I don't feel afraid

As long as I gaze on Waterloo sunset

I am in paradise


Millions of people swarming like flies round Waterloo underground

But Terry and Julie cross over the river

Where they feel safe and sound

And they don't need no friends

As long as they gaze on Waterloo sunset

They are in paradise


Waterloo sunset's fine
