hands held loosely by his side 
Yesterday's paper telling ________ ______ _

And say for you that the sun don't shine and
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through ________________________Show you something to make you
change your mind*

Who walks the streets of London 
Dirt in her hair and her clothes in rag

Carrying her home in two carrier _______. 

In the ________________

At a quarter past eleven, 
Same old man sitting there on his own 
Looking at the world 
Over the rim of his ______, 
and each tea last an hour,
And he wanders home alone 


And have you seen the old man 
Outside the Seaman's Mission* 
Memory fading* with the __________ that he wears 
And in our winter city 
_________ cried a little pity 
A one more ____________ 
And the world that doesn't care*

Seamans mission – бар для моряков

Memory fading – ухудшающаяся память

Doesn’t care – все равно
