a foggy day lyrics – billie holiday

i was a stranger in the city
out of town were the people i knew
i had that feeling of self pity
what to do, what to do, what to do?
the outlook was decidedly blue
but as i walked through the foggy streets alone
it turned out to be the luckiest day i’ve known
a foggy day in london town
it had me low and it had me down
i viewed the morning with much alarm
the british museum had lost its charm
how long, i wondered, could this thing last?
but the age of miracles hadn’t p*ssed
for, suddenly, i saw you there
and through foggy london town
the sun was shining everywhere
a foggy day in london town
it had me low and it had me down
i viewed the morning with much alarm
the british museum had lost its charm
how long, i wondered, could this thing last?
but the age of miracles hadn’t p*ssed
for, suddenly, i saw you there
and through foggy london town
the sun was shining upside-down!
