Victoria Gardens

SONG COMPOSERS, LYRICS AND BACKGROUND

LYRICS

You’re looking and listening and hoping that things are changing for the better
You’re trying to see if what you’re teaching is the truth sir
You’re looking and listening and hoping that things will change for better
Don’t want to preach or teach the blues to you now brother

I just left Victoria Gardens
And walked through cardboard city land
A burnt out star was asking
How would I like to shake his hand

I walked on in no hurry
And wondered where did we go wrong?

Looking listening and hoping that things are changing for the better
Don’t want to preach or teach the blues to you now brother

It’s a bloody fine situation

That we find ourselves in
He said something I couldn’t mention here

And we laughed with him again

Looking listening hoping that things are changing for the better
And trying to see if what you’re teaching is the truth sir

She said it’s for the good of us all

I’m not so sure

And now it is early evening
I look across grey Leicester Square
A large and silent crowd were walking
Said they had every right to be there
