Early morning day is dawningCooling towers and factory gatesDirty streets and laughing peopleSkinny dogs and beer cratesHello my old friendHello my old friendSad canals green black waterSomewhere bicycles and bedsWet and windy afternoonsAnd pigeons coo in garden shedsHello my old friendHello my old friendHigh-rise tower blocks with panoramicViews of trains and coalTiehead railway tracks tread faithfullyThe gas works to beholdHello my old friendHello my old friendJust to see the sunsetPretty rainbows over your majestic towersTo feel your earth beneath my feetHere I could stand for hours and hours(young girls sing fara jacka in the background)Big machines that once were championsTurn to dust under the skyBroken windows choking chimneysFactory walls for miles and milesBy bye my old friendBy bye my old friendJust to see the sunsetPretty rainbows over your majestic towersTo feel your earth beneath my feetHere I could stand for hours and hours
