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 Levertons 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 this time - now that Billy’s gone away
