Riding through the city on my bike all day
'Cause the filth took away my licence
It doesn't get me down and I feel okay
'Cause the sights that I'm seeing are priceless
Everything seems to look as it should
But I wonder what goes on behind doors
A fella looking dapper, and he's sittin' with a slapper
Then I see it's a pimp and his crack whore

You might laugh, you might frown
Walkin' round London town

Sun is in the sky, oh why, oh why
Would I wanna be anywhere else?
Sun is in the sky, oh why, oh why?
Would I wanna be anywhere else?

When you look with your eyes
Everything seems nice
But if you look twice
You can see it's all lies

There was a little old lady, who was walkin' down the road
She was struggling with bags from Tesco
There were people from the city having lunch in the park
I believe that it's called al fresco
Then a kid came along to offer a hand
But before she had time to accept it
Hits her over the head, doesn't care if she's dead
'Cause he's got all her jewelry and wallet

You might laugh, you might frown
Walkin' round London town

Sun is in the sky, oh why, oh why
Would I wanna be anywhere else?
Sun is in the sky, oh why, oh why?
Would I wanna be anywhere else?

When you look with your eyes
Everything seems nice
But if you look twice
You can see it's all lies

Life, yeah, that's city life, yeah, that's city life, yeah, that's city life
Life, yeah, that's city life, yeah, that's city life, yeah, that's city life

Sun is in the sky, oh why, oh why
Would I wanna be anywhere else?
Sun is in the sky, oh why, oh why?
Would I wanna be anywhere else?
Sun is in the sky, oh why, oh why
Would I wanna be anywhere else?
Sun is in the sky, oh why, oh why?
Would I wanna be anywhere else?

When you look with your eyes
Everything seems nice
But if you look twice
You can see it's all lies

When you look with your eyes
Everything seems nice
But if you look twice
You can see it's all lies

You can see it's all lies
You can see it's all lies
Seems like all lies
Yeah, it's all lies

As a Londoner, this video perfectly captures what tourists think of London, and what it really is.

Rachel Weinstein London ain’t clean mate, but no problem 🤣

Rachel Weinstein

​@jack williams cheers from the clean(er) us city of washington, dc xo

jack williams

Rachel Weinstein I’ve been to nyc and I can confidently say i agree with you! Beautiful city though to say the least. I had a great time, but I do see where your coming from as I can relate

Rachel Weinstein

​@jack williams American here. I feel like this is true for the world's "great cities". New York City is like the dream city to many non-Americans or even rural Americans, when in reality, it is an island packed to the brim with garbage, rodents and pollution. Los Angeles is beautiful in many areas, but it also has one of the highest rates of homelessness of major US cities, and there are neighborhoods in the city that are rife with gang activity and gun violence. The same can be said for Paris. It is a beautiful city, in the beautiful parts of the city, but there are plenty of dirty parts of town where naive tourists are sure to get mugged. As for London, well, yes, there are beautiful parts and I love how cheeky you British folks are, but the South part of town where my relatives live leaves much to be desired (still beats NYC, if you ask me).
Perhaps the grass is always greener on the other side of the atlantic ocean/english channel.

Yes, I was more worried out at night in London than in Nairobi, Kenya. Hah.
