about

When I started busking in London it was just to be heard. I wanted to share my music so much and I finally found a place to do it that worked for me.

For the first time ever I was really making waves with my music and every time I had a big crowd before me I wanted to share my joy with them. I wanted to give a big speech about what this platform means to me. I couldn't think of a better way than writing a song about it. I wanted it to be up beat and joyful and celebratory; an ode to my favourite city and my love for busking.

lyrics

I’m making waves today,
I’m making waves.
Telling stories about yesterday.

I’m getting by today,
Just getting by.
Telling stories by the riverside.

And I don’t need your coins,
No I just need your ear.
Won’t you join me
While we’re standing here?

Buh bah buh bah!
There’s music on the streets of London.
Buh bah buh bah!
There’s music in my heart.
Buh bah buh bah!
There’s music on the streets of London.
That’s where we are, that’s where we are.

I’m making memories,
I’m making plans.
My future and my past are where I stand.

I’m making history,
I’m making news.
I’ll make the best of things and hope that soon.

I won’t need your coins,
No I’ll just need your ear.
Won’t you join me
While we’re standing here?

(singing)
Buh bah buh bah!
There’s music on the streets of London.
Buh bah buh bah!
There’s music in my heart.
Buh bah buh bah!
There’s music on the streets of London.
That’s where we are, that’s where we are.

Ooooh
Yeah I get lonely.
Ooooh
Yeah I get cold.
Ooooh
Yeah I get tired, oh so tired
But I’ll never sell my soul.
Ooooh
From Piccadilly
Ooooh
To Leicester Square
Oh I gave my heart to London
And you’ll always find me there.

There’s music on the streets of London.
There’s music in my heart.
There’s music on the streets of London.
That’s where we are, that’s where we are.

Buh bah buh bah!
There’s music on the streets of London.
Buh bah buh bah!
There’s music in my heart.
Buh bah buh bah!
There’s music on the streets of London.
That’s where we are, that’s where we are.
