Cathy Grew Up In London Town

lyrics

Cathy was born on Sandy Hill Road
Just a five-minute walk to her dear Auntie Rose
Where she played everyday just after the war in the summer

Cathy grew tall she grew tall for fifteen
She learned shorthand and worked as a temp making tea
And she dated a ted while she dated a mod for a summer
And she’s never been so proud

Cathy grew up in London Town
Falling in love on a weeknight out
Walking down King Cross Road that summer

She gave half her pay to her poor Mum and Dad
Till she moved up to St. John’s Wood in a flat
With two sweet Jewish boys and her best friend from Eastbourne, Rhonda

Till one day she met a man in a Jag
From the pop music world with the dice in his hands
And they married one afternoon late one summer

And she’s never been so proud
She’s the life of every crowd
And she’s always going out

Cathy grew up in London Town
Falling in love on a weeknight out
The prettiest girl in all of Croydon

Cathy grew up in London Town
She always looked up when the world looked down
Walking home in the rain one summer

Cathy we love ya
