Lyrics

I found a postcard the other day
A faded photograph taken of a cold winterscape

And all the children that gathered round
Asked what the place was on the faded card that I had found

It was a city I used to know
And as a child when it was Christmas
I played in the winter snow

It was the homeland I left behind
A better future waiting in the new world that we hoped to find

Across the oceans far south we came
And left the country that somehow we knew we'd never see again

And read the message that you wrote
On the reverse of that same postcard always seemed to give me hope

Though time will pass us and fade from view
I hope sometimes you think of me because I'll always think of you

And to the children who gathered round
I said 'This is the place of long ago we all called London Town'

Postcard from London's romantic views
Only serve to keep reminding me of how much I missed you

Postcard from London
Postcard from London Town
Postcard from London
Postcard from London Town

We built a snowman by Hampstead Pond
Walked down to Waterloo at Yuletide and we sang so many songs

Later you went there not to return
I took for granted love we had now I will always yearn
For the great city we used to know
We were so innocent back then when we played in the winter snow

And now the children who gather round
Ask where the place is in the postcard
I say proudly 'It was London Town'

Postcard from London
Postcard from London Town
Postcard from London
Postcard from London Town
Postcard from London
Postcard from London Town
London Town
