Sunny South Kensington Lyrics

Artist: Donovan Leitch
Album: Mellow Yellow

From the album mellow yellow

Come take a walk in sunny South Kensington
Any day of the week.
See the girl with the silk Chinese blouse on,
You know she ain't no freak.
Come loon soon down Cromwell Road, man,
You got to spread your wings.
A-flip out, skip out, trip-out, and a-make your stand, folks,
To dig me as I sing.
Jean-Paul Belmondo and-a Mary Quant got
Stoned to say the least
Ginsberg, he ended up-a dry and so
He a-took a trip out East.
If I'm a-late waitin' down the gate, it's such a 'raz' scene,
A groovy place to live.
In the Portobella I met a fella with a cane umbrella,
Who must've used a sieve.
So come loon soon down Cromwell Road, man,
You got to spread your wings.
A-flip out, skip out, trip-out and a-make your stand, folks,
To dig me as I sing.
Hmm, hmm, hmm.
Come take a walk in sunny South Kensington
Any day of the week.
Come see the girl with the silk Chinese blouse on,
You know she ain't no freak.
If I'm a-late waitin' down the gate, it's such a 'raz' scene,
A groovy place to live.
In the Portobella I met a fella with a cane umbrella,
Who must've used a sieve.
Jean-Paul Belmondo and-a Mary Quant got
Stoned to say the least
Ginsberg, he ended up-a dry and so
He a-took a trip out East.
Hmm, hmm, hmm.
Come loon soon down Cromwell Road, man,
You got, you got to spread your wings, yeah.
See the girl with the silk Chinese blouse on, yeah,
You know she ain't no freak, hmm, hmm.

Never did quite know what all the lyrics were to this song, and now that I have read them I still don't know what they mean...like"a raz scene"?...but it still was an extraordinary portrait of Swinging London of late 1966.What a time...
