Billy Fury Way

You’re going to lose your life today down on Billy Fury Way
Rock and Roll won’t save you now that Billy’s gone away
Halfway to Paradise via Paddington Green
Take me up to heaven in a Leverton’s limousine

We’re gathered here today to pay our last respects
In a secret alleyway from this world to the next
I measured out my life in barbershop mirrors
How did I become so old?
And is this the face that I deserve, is this what I deserve?

As the light begins to fade and the shadows start to spread
I see visions of a past life, nightwatchmen in my head
Always the stranger up on the bridge, he signals at me
I think I know who it is but it’s too dark to see

Ancient coins wash up with every tide
Place them here on my eyes
Pay the riverman, pay the riverman
As London dies

You’re going to lose your life today down on Billy Fury Way
Rock and Rock won’t save you now that Billy’s gone away
