Berkeley Mews

Ray Davies, released on single, © Davray Music/Carlin Music Corp. 1970

.

The leaves of brown came falling through the view,

In Berkeley Mews, I first met you,

I staggered through your chilly dining room,

In Berkeley Mews, I first met you.

.

Your kitchen sink was cluttered up,

So I put the shutter up forlornly

I brewed another cuppa up

And tried to sneak out early in the morning.

.

I thought you had much better things to do,

In Berkeley Mews, I first met you,

Drowned my conversation with champagne,

In Berkeley Mews, was not listening.

.

I thought you were an intellect,

But now that I reflect, you left me reeling.

You made me drink a toast

And when you finished I was looking at the ceiling.

.

The floods of tears I've wept thinking of you,

Remind me of that night in Berkeley Mews.

You know that you left me broken hearted,

In Berkeley Mews.
