Return To Waterloo

Ray Davies, released on Return to Waterloo (solo) © Davray Music Ltd. 1985

.

Look at all the people around me,

Same old faces joining the queue.

For return to Waterloo,

Return to Waterloo.

.

Started off this morning as usual,

Checkin' out the mail and all the bills to pay.

Maybe something special's gonna happen,

Maybe this is my lucky day.

.

The forecast says heavy weather,

So take your umbrella just in case.

Will I get away, will I see it through,

On the return to Waterloo.

.

Return to Waterloo.

Return to Waterloo.

.

Somehow you feel that the world's been passin' you by.

Can't help thinkin' somehow they're living a lie.

Now I'm asking questions, I never thought I'd ask them before,

Like "why" or "how" or "what am I doing it for?"

.

Will I reach my destination,

Or will I get off along the way?

Will I reach my destination?

.

Will I reach my destination,

Have I stopped or am I only going slow?

Have we got a couple more stations,

Or is this as far as we all go?

.

The headlines cry out from the papers,

"Inflation," "murder," "wars," who really wants to know?

If I return to Waterloo,

It'll cost me more in 1992.

.

Will I get away,

Will I see it through?

And come back home to you,

On the return to Waterloo.
