Molly​

Molly

My little shipwreck

I was sinking and just like a rat

You abandoned me with a wave

To a watery grave

And that was the end of that

Molly

My old broken compass

Now I'm lost and I don't know the stars

No more to navigate

That old ocean of fate

I'll be in all of the usual bars

And through London's fair city I wander alone

Where the girls are so pretty but nobody's home

Cause I'm only looking for Mrs Malone

Oh Molly where did you go?

Nobody round here seems to know

Molly

My forgone conclusion

Maybe we were never written to win

I remember you say

Way back in the day

That you'd never let anyone in

Molly

My greatest adventure

We never made it to old Mexico

Instead we only got as far

As that old Cuban bar

That's just off the Waterloo Road

And through London's fair city I wander alone

Where the girls are so pretty but nobody's home

Cause I'm only looking for Mrs Malone

Oh Molly where did you go?

Nobody round here seems to know

Molly

Where did you go?

I've asked the whole congregation

And none of them know

Molly

Where do I start?

I still love you with every string of my heart

Molly

My little empire

Now I shall return to the sea

But I won't be sailing

Like Sir Michael of Palin

Cause no-one can save me from me

And through London's fair city I wander alone

Where the girls are so pretty but nobody's home

Cause I'm only looking for Mrs Malone

Oh Molly where did you go?

Nobody round here seems to know

Nobody round here seems to know

Nobody round here seems to know
