London Bridge Is Broken

Song Video

Lyrics

London Bridge is broken down,
Dance over my Ladye Lee,
London Bridge is broken down
With a gay ladye.

How shall we build it up again?
Dance over my Ladye Lee;
How shall we build it up again
With a gay Ladye?

Silver and gold will be stole away,
Dance over my Ladye Lee;
Silver and gold will be stole away,
With a gay Ladye.

Iron and steel will bend and bow,
Dance over my Ladye Lee;
Iron and steel will bend and bow
With a gay Ladye.

Wood and clay will wash away,
Dance over my Ladye Lee;
Wood and clay will wash away,
With a gay Ladye.

Build it up with stone as strong,
Dance over my Ladye Lee,
Huzza! "Twill last for ages long,
With a gay Ladye.
