"Old Thames Side" as written by and Richard Thompson....
As I was walking down by old Thames side
Oh my foot and my heart seem to falter
And there you were standing by a Custom House landing
Like Venus risen out of the water

And they say it's because, well, I'm a fool in love
That I swear there's no beauty before you
And those that deny or think that I lie
Well oh, those are the ones who never saw you

Oh, there never was anyone so perfect as you
As you stood there and smiled to greet me
And I searched for a phrase to capture your ways
Well, that's a task that'll always defeat me

And they say it's because, oh, I'm a fool in love
That I swear there's no beauty before you
But those that deny or think that I lie
Well those are the ones who never saw you

And they say it's because I'm a fool in love
That I swear there's no beauty before you
And those that deny or think that I lie
Well oh, those are the ones who never saw you
