As performed on the London Cast Recording, circa 1981

Bb (x1333x@1)                          GmMidnight, (355333@1)not a sound on the pavement
                     Eb (x43121@3)                  DmHas (xx0231@1)the moon lost a memory? She is smiling alone
        Cm (x3101x@1)                          GmIn (355333@1)the lamplight the withered leaves collect at my feet
         F (133211@1)            BbAnd (x1333x@1)the wind begins to moan

Bb (x1333x@1)                    GmMemory, (355333@1)all alone in the moonlight
                   EbI (x43121@3)can smile at the old days
                DmI (xx0231@1)was beautiful then
    Cm (x3101x@1)                         GmI (355333@1)remember the time I knew what happiness was
        F (133211@1)         BbLet (x1333x@1)the memory live again

Dm (xx0231@1)   Eb (x43121@3)       Dm (xx0231@1)      EbEvery (x43121@3)street lamp seems to beat 
    Dm (xx0231@1) Bb (x1333x@1) F (133211@1)A fatalistic warning
Dm (xx0231@1)     G (320003@1)          C (x32010@1)         AmSomeone (x02210@1)mutters and a street lamp flutters
    Dm (xx0231@1)    F (133211@1)     CAnd (x32010@1)soon it will be morning

Bb (x1333x@1)                      Gm (355333@1)Daylight, I must wait for the sunrise
                  EbI (x43121@3)must think of a new life
                   DmAnd (xx0231@1)I mustn't give in
         Cm (x3101x@1)                          GmWhen (355333@1)the dawn comes tonight will be a memory too
       F (133211@1)         BbAnd (x1333x@1)a new day will begin
