Thread Name: Origins: Streets of London (Ralph McTell)^^^
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Streets of London
Hear the little whirring of a million little tape recorders
Grabbing new material before it hits the ground
Hear the second-rate performers singing all this new material
Hear how it becomes a drag the second time around

So don't let me hear that you're downhearted,
That you haven't had a booking in a long, long while,
Grow yourself a bushy beard and learn to squeeze a concertina
I'll show you something that will make you change your style

....ca 1972, at the height if the Brit folk revival in the US.
