Take a look at the great street
It don't seem the same
Remember how great it should be
Shops are full of fashion
People told what they want
The street that was a part of the
British monarchy
British monarchy

Who wants cafgans and all that
We don't need them now
Why should we accept the change
And buy clothes of today

Kids repel the change and
Bring back the street
Shops filled by whole nations
Carnaby street
Carnaby street

The street is a mirror
For our country
Reflects the rise and fall
Of our nation

The street that was a legend
Is a mockery
A part of the British tradition
Gone down the drain

You don't need no glass ball
To see its faults
Take a walk along that street
And you'll see what I mean

Carnaby street
Carnaby street
(Not what it used to be)
Carnaby street
(Not what it used to be)
