Victoria Gardens - Lyrics


You're looking and listening and hoping that things are changing for the better
You're trying to see if what you're teaching is the truth sir
You're looking and listening and hoping that things will change for the better
Don't want to preach or teach the blues to you now brother

I just left Victoria Gardens
And walked through cardboard city land
A burnt out star was asking
How would I like to shake his hand?

I walked on in no hurry (hurry, hurry, hurry)
And wondered where did we go wrong?

We're looking and listening and hoping that things are changing for the better
Don't want to preach or teach the blues to you now brother

I walked on in no hurry (hurry, hurry, hurry)
And wondered where did we go wrong?

We're looking and listening and hoping that things are changing for the better
Don't want to preach or teach the blues to you now brother

It's a bloody fine situation that we find ourselves in
He said something I couldn't mention here and we laughed with him again

I walked on in no hurry (hurry, hurry, hurry)
And wondered where did we go wrong

Looking listening hoping that things are changing for the better
And trying to see if what you're teaching is the truth sir

She said it's for the good of us all

Looking listening hoping that things are changing for the better
Don't want to preach or teach the blues to you now brother

I'm not so sure

And now it is early evening
I look across grey Leicester Square
A large and silent crowd were walking
Said they had every right to be there (repeats until fade)

Looking listening hoping that things are changing for the better (You get what you don't want)
And trying to see if what you're teaching is the truth sir (You want what you don't get)
