"London Bridge" as written by and Stacy/garrett Ferguson....
London Danny is a real bad penny
The one man time has told me I should fear
For the girl you left behind, she said she would be mine
So why did you have to come and show your face round here

Chorus

For she always said that time would make it right
But now I always hear her sighing in the night
And don't think I don't know, if you asked her then she'd go
Ah but please now don't you take her from me, London Danny

Well I've learned to listen for your name round town
Whe people talk of your success in city life
But I could never tell if she heard them talk as well
Or rue the day she ever was a poor man's wife

Chorus

For she always said that time would make it right
But now I always hear her sighing in the night
And don't think I don't know, if you asked her then she'd go
Ah but please now don't you take her from me, London Danny

Well me' hands are black while yours are clean and clever
There's ways you know to turn her pretty head
Well its all that I can do when me' working day is through
To let her heart beat me to sleep each night in bed

Chorus

For she always said that time would make it right
But now I always hear her sighing in the night
And don't think I don't know, if you asked her then she'd go
Ah but please now don't you take her from me, London Danny

Well London Danny you're a real bad penny
The one man time has told me I should fear
For the girl you left behind, she said she would be mine
So why did you have to come and show your face round here

Chorus

For she always said that time would make it right
But now I always hear her sighing in the night
And don't think I don't know, if you asked her then she'd go
Ah but please now don't you take her from me, London Danny

    General Comment*YES, THIS IS SUPPOSEDLY A FERGIE SINGLE, but as TABOO AND WILL.I.AM ARE IN IT, I POSTED IT TO THE BEP PAGE AS WELL*

    There is a good chance there are errors in these lyrics. I transcribed to the best of my ability, but missed out on some of the shouted stuff in the background and some of the softer stuff she says between choruses. If there are any changes, just leave a comment here and I'll be sure to edit as they're receieved.

    General CommentI've listed my full interpretation on the posting of the song under "Fergie," but it doesn't take a genius to see this song is a harsh criticism of the Bush administration.
