From the lower jaws of London there sticks a lonely tooth
We used to come around
When that became the Monkey Chews
That was all black in the nineties, they were rolling in it then
They did up all the pubs in olive oil and pastel paint

It comes and goes
Don't turn up your nose
You've got to allow for some wear and tear
And when it's gone and nothing else comes along
The world we remember takes shelter there

I went back to Vienna, I had myself to blame
You can't expect the streets you've left behind
To stay the same
I walked past our old windows, I had to have a look
They've got a rhododendron
At least they've got some books

It comes and goes
Like changing your clothes
You've got to allow for some wear and tear
And when it's gone and nothing else comes along
The world we remember takes shelter there
