		Waterloo sunset's fine

Verse 2- (as above)

Terry meets Julie, Waterloo Station, every Friday night
But I am so lazy, don't want to wander, I stay at home at night
But I don't feel afraid
As long as I gaze on, Waterloo Sunset, I am in paradise
Every day I look at the world from my window
The chilly-chilliest evening time,  Waterloo sunset's fine

Verse 3- (as above)

Millions of people, swarming like flies round, Waterloo underground
But Terry and Julie, cross over the river, where they feel safe and sound
And they don't need no friends,
As long as they gaze on, Waterloo Sunset, they are in paradise
