Verse 2- (as above)

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

Verse 3- (as above)

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

About the artist behind Waterloo Sunset Acoustic Tab:

The Kinks were an English pop/rock group formed in 1963, and categorised as a British Invasion band, along with the other members of the so-called Big Four (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who). Despite being less commercially successful than these three contemporaries, mostly because of a four-year ban from the United States in the mid-to-late 1960s, the Kinks are cited among them as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time and have 12 top 40 hits in America.[1]

The band's early hard-driving singles set a standard in the mid-1960s for rock and roll, while albums such as Face to Face,[2] Something Else, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, Arthur and Muswell Hillbillies are highly regarded by fans, critics, and peers, and are considered amongst the most influential recordings of the era.[3]
