Lily Allen Lyrics


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.

roy_for_real

@IFB like with every city

Ricky Tenderkiss

@jack williams- It’s the same the world over. People have romantic notions of the rural U.S. South, when in fact it’s really around 96% toothless inbred meth-heads with health issues and no access to medical care, dropping out of school at 14 and not planning beyond age 16, and then 3% nouveau riche hardcore conservatives making life worse for everyone, and only like 1% smart, kind, and friendly decent folk running family farms in the face of massive agribusiness gradually forcing them out of business. Look too closely in many places and the seams start to show. The difference between most of the world and places like London, Paris, Chicago, NYC, Tokyo, Stockholm, and the like, is … world capitals are simultaneously awesome too, no matter what the downsides. I’ve lived in one or another for most of my life, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything!

Stephanie Durney

You know I don’t believe that and I’m not from there I’m from a city people think that of Liverpool it is what it is there is good and bad people everywhere and there is good and bad everywhere

Amy Ross

Well, in my point of view, London is not really that bad. Growing up in London I thought it was an absolute paradise. But what a smashing video and song.

I'm Colombian but I've loved London and this song for years. The main beat from this song is actually Colombian, it is a cumbia from Pedro Laza. I deeply recommend it and thank Lilly allen for representing Caribbean music.

Rosa Garcia

@huntrrams yes is

huntrrams

The sample is not cumbia

Swishy Fishy

This is just drivel, I just heard the song and it is nothing alike.
