Days of old when knights were bold, Britain ruled supreme
Songs were sung and tales were told, life was like a dream
Top men like the great King Arthur never came here ever after
Ever since those gallant heroes gone

London Bridge is falling down
Falling down I said, falling down
London Bridge is falling down
Falling down I said, falling down

Noted for diplomacy, once the mighty fall
Touching pmp of pageantry, history books all show
Husky dogs and great explorers
Mighty kings and sage warriors
Trouble take me since they're dead and gone

London Bridge is falling down
Falling down I said, falling down
London Bridge is falling down
Falling down I said, falling down

Early evening entertainment
People sleeping on the pavement
In the eyes of god we must be wrong

London Bridge is falling down
Falling down I said, falling down
London Bridge is falling down
Falling down I said, falling down

Time was when a British Empire was in full control
France and Spain were just the same if the truth be known
Now the walls are down in Europe
Forming laws with certain Arabs?
Better get you petrol while you can

London Bridge is falling down
Falling down I said, falling down
London Bridge is falling down
Falling down I said, falling down

Like the grip of an old King Kong
From South Africa to Hong Kong
Now the times are moving on and

London Bridge is falling down
Falling down I said, falling down
London Bridge is falling down
Falling down I said, falling down

In the days gone by we'd pay for the things we'd got
Now we pay to advertise while we sell the lot
All the companies we started sold out on the open market
Where are jobs now that they're gone?

London Bridge is falling down
Falling down I said, falling down
London Bridge is falling down
Falling down I said, falling down

If we're sure we want to stay
On this, our base for the us of A
Then it's time that we should say that

London Bridge is falling down
Falling down I said, falling down
London Bridge is falling down
Falling down I said, falling down

London Bridge is falling down
London Bridge is falling down
London Bridge is falling down
