LONDON BRIDGE


Tommysong 25.jpg

London bridge
Is broken down,
Dance over my Lady Lee;
London bridge
Is broken down,
With a gay lady.
How shall we build
It up again,
With a gay lady?
Build it up with
Gravel and stone,
Dance over my Lady Lee;
Build it up with
Gravel and stone,
With a gay lady;
Gravel and stone
Will wash away,
Dance over my Lady Lee;
Gravel and stone
Will wash away,
With a gay lady;
Build it up with
Iron and steel,
Dance over my Lady Lee;
Build it up with
Iron and steel,
With a gay lady;
Iron and steel
Will bend and bow,
Dance over my Lady Lee;
Iron and steel
Will bend and bow,
With a gay lady;
Build it up with
Silver and gold,
Dance over my Lady Lee;
Build it up with
Silver and gold,
With a gay lady;
Silver and gold
Will be stol'n away,
Dance over my Lady Lee;
Silver and gold
Will be stol'n away,
With a gay lady;
Then we will set
A man to watch,
Dance over my Lady Lee;
Then we will set
A man to watch

With a gay Lady.
