Edmundo Ros - London is the place for me
Tekst en muziek: Aldwyn Roberts alias Lord Kitchener
(1955)






London is the place for me
London is the place to be
Go to Japan or America
China, India or Australia
But you must come back to London City



Believe me, I’m speaking broad mindedly
I am happy to know this lovely city
I have travelled in the world to and fro
Met people on stages, high and low
But London, this is the place for me



To live in London, one is really comfortable
The people of London are very sociable
They invite you here, they will take you there
And they make you feel like a millionaire
London, this is the place for me



If at night, you find out that you are free
You can take the walk down the King’s Road in Chelsea
You can sing and dance and enjoy the scene
The most tip-top place that is ever been
London, this is the place for me



I can not complain of the time that I have spent
Living in London is really magnificent
I recommand it as the place to be
I’ve already planted a family tree
In London and this is the place for me



London is the place for me
