Musings From A Musical Mind

London Bridge

If you were a child of the 60’s and 70’s like I was – then you will remember the group “Bread”.  David Gates had a voice like no other – and many have tried to copy him over the years – but it was a unique quality that few have.  This song was not a huge hit – but I like it anyway – great lyrics – great band.  Enjoy!

I know the times the times are hard to bear
It’s hard to find someone to really care
But before I went down and out
Here’s what I used to think about, think about:
London Bridge was always fallin’ down,
But there it stood within the heart of town
Reminding everyone of life behind and life to come
The changes taking place are everywhere
The centuries past have nothing to compare
Where they stand, where they trip and fall
Watch the writing on the wall, on the wall
London Bridge is fallin’ down at last,
And so another memory of the past
Has fell beneath the blade, but soon the dead may be repaid
I know things just can’t evolve for all eternity
The thoughts will leave, will never die, and now so you can see
London Bridge is finally fallin’ down,
It packed it up and shipped it outta town
And though the horror’s gone, the memory will linger on
London Bridge is finally fallin’ down,
It used to stand within the heart of town
Reminding everyone of life behind and life to come
London Bridge is finally fallin’ down…..

  1. Wow! I used to love Bread – and Meatloaf. What funny names. Maybe that is why I am liking The Apprentice this season – Meatloaf is on it. LOL. The voice from Bread is amazing.. very unique 🙂

  2. I remember this one, Cindy, and you’re right about that voice. . . couldn’t be duplicated. Like you, though, I like other songs they did better. They had quite a few really good ones way back when!

  3. I remember Bread!
