[1]  1 Dirty old river, must you keep rolling, rolling into the night
                 D                 A                   G
     2 People so busy make me feel dizzy, taxi lights shine so bright

     3 But I don't need no friends

     6 The chilly-chilliest evening time,  Waterloo sunset's fine

[2]  Terry meets Julie, Waterloo Station, every Friday night
     But I am so lazy, don't want to wander, I stay at home at night
     But I don't feel afraid
     As long as I gaze on Waterloo Sunset, I am in paradise
     Every day I look at the world from my window
     The chilly-chilliest evening time,  Waterloo sunset's fine

[3]  Millions of people swarming like flies round Waterloo underground
     But Terry and Julie cross over the river where they feel safe and sound
     And they don't need no friends
     As long as they gaze on Waterloo Sunset they are in paradise
