You're looking and listening and hoping that things are changing for the better
You're trying to see if what you're teaching is the truth, sir
You're looking and listening and hoping that things will change for better
Don't wanna preach or teach the blues to you now brother

I just left Victoria Gardens
And walked through Cardboard City land
A burnt out star was asking
How would I like to shake his hand

I walked on in no hurry (hurry, hurry, hurry)
And wondered where did we go wrong

Looking, listening, hoping that things are changing for the better
Don't wanna preach or teach the blues to you now brother

I walked on in no hurry (hurry, hurry, hurry)
And wondered where did we go wrong

Looking, listening, hoping that things are changing for the better
(Only time can tell) don't wanna preach or teach the blues to you now brother

It's a bloody fine situation
That we find ourselves in
He said something I couldn't mention here
And we laughed with him again

I walked on in no hurry (hurry hurry hurry)
And wondered where did we go wrong

Looking, listening, hoping that things are changing for the better
And trying to see if what you're teaching is the truth, sir

She said it's for the good of us all (of us all, of us all)

Looking, listening, hoping that things are changing for the better
Don't wanna preach or teach the blues to you now brother

I'm not so sure (sure, sure, sure)

And now it is early evening
I look across grey Leicester Square
A large and silent crowd were walking
Said they had every right to be there

Looking, listening, hoping that things are changing for the better
(Said they had every right to be there)
And trying to see if what you're teaching is the truth, sir
(Said they had every right to the square)

Looking, listening, hoping that things are changing for the better
(You get what you don't want) [righ to be there]
Don't wanna preach or teach the blues to you now brother
(You want what you don't get) [right to be there]

Looking, listening, hoping that things are changing for the better
(You have what you don't need) [right to the square]
And trying to see if what you're teaching is the truth, sir
(You need what you don't have) [right to be there]
