You stole my Kohinoor
Killed thousands of my leaders
Tortured millions of my people
And still, you ignore my struggles
After what you have gained from us.

But, London! London!
You are still the apple of my eyes
I have read Great Expectations
And I know what will happen when
You accept me as your friend.

But, London! London!
Allow me to be a beggar in your bosom
And let my people think I am rich
Because, London, you are one city
Where everyone wants to dwell.
