Blackfriars

On the bank of the Thames
As the clocks strike and the workers retire
On the Blackfriars pier
Where the steamboats leave for estuary towns
I’ll be alright just as long as I see you pass by
On the river, float by on the breeze

At the strike of the clocks
On the starboard side, with your hands on the rails
Holding tight as the paddlewheels spin
And the passengers cheer as the smoke starts to rise
I’ll be alright just as long as I see you pass by
On the river, float by on the breeze

Every trip spells a danger
As the steamboats collide and the tide starts to rise
Then you’ll drift into view
And my heart skips, I’ll sleep soundly tonight
I’ll be alright just as long as I
I’ll be alright just as long as I
I’ll be fine, just as long as I see you pass by
On the river, float by on the breeze
