The lyrics, as far as I can make them out:

Portobello Road
Music and Lyrics by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman


Portobello Road! Portobello Road!
Street where the riches of ages are stowed
Artifacts to glorify a regal abode
Are hidden in the flotsam in Portobello Road

Tokens and treasures
Yesterday’s pleasures
Once proud possessions and heirlooms of old
Dented and tarnished,
Scarred and unvarnished
In old Portobello they’re bought and they’re sold

Portobello Road! Portobello Road!
Street where the riches of ages are stowed
Artifacts to glorify a regal abode
Are hidden in the flotsam in Portobello Road
Can you find the treasures in Portobello Road?

Rare alabasters
Dusty old masters
Carpets from [_____] and canes from Bombay
Scrappings from coaches
Byzantine brooches
A harpsichord Chopin was rumored to play

[____] flagons
Ivory dragons
Mandolins mellowed by music of yore,
Austrian crystals
Napoleon’s pistols
Swords that came back from the Crimean War

Portobello Road! Portobello Road!
Street where the riches of ages are stowed
Artifacts to glorify a regal abode
Are hidden in the flotsam in Portobello Road
Can you find the treasures in Portobello Road?

Birdwatcher’s handbooks
Censored and banned books
Volumes on alchemy, voodoo and zen
[____] and bride books
Revelers’ guide books
A black magic course from a sorcerer’s pen

Silver pill boxes
Taxidermed foxes
A [____] of Henry the Eighth
A quill used by Shelley
A bruised Boticelli
Religious equipment of every known faith

The [cowls?] of [____]
The rings of a raja
A filigreed samovar owned by the Czars
An ancient mosaic
A scroll in Hebraic
The snipper that clipped old King George’s cigars

Portobello Road! Portobello Road!
Street where the riches of ages are stowed
Anything you’re purchasing is more than it seems
You’re buying the story of mystery and dreams
