London's Not Too Far

This song is by Hank Marvin and appears on the compilation Complete Singles As & Bs 1959-1980 - 21 Years at the Top (2004) by The Shadows.

She takes the step, that'll mean goodbye to home
She knows it's time to make the break
She's got a bag for the mirror, brush and comb
That's all she really needs to take

She's got to travel light
She's walking all the way
"London's not too far"
She's heard the neighbour say

Her heart just beats like it's never done before
If someone stops her now, she'll die
A little prayer as she fumbles with the door
She hopes her mom and dad won't cry

She planned it all herself
And now she's on her way
"London's not too far"
She's heard the neighbour say

She's so in love with a man she doesn't know
She's only seen him on T.V.
But love is strong and it's calling her to go
To London where he's sure to be

The door is open now
She's free to walk away
"London's not too far"
She's heard the neighbour say

She looks outside, it's a wet and windy night
It looks so very dark and cold
She thinks perhaps London's not so very bright
Especially when you're five years old
