Prince Of The Punks

Chords and lyrics for Prince Of The Punks by Kinks

A well known groover, rock ‘n’ roll user wanted to be a star.
Playing folk in a country bar.
Reggae music didn’t seem to satisfy his needs.
He couldn’t handle modern jazz, ’cause they play it in difficult keys.
But now he’s found a music he can call his own,
Some people call it junk, but he don’t care, he’s found a home.

He’s the Prince of the Punks and he’s finally made it,

Thinks he looks cool but his act is dated.
He acts working class but it’s all bo- logna,
He’s really middle class and he’s just a phony.
He acts tough but it’s just a front, the Prince of the Punks.

He tried to be gay, but it didn’t pay,

So he bought a motorbike instead.
He failed at funk, so he became a punk,

Now he wears a swastika band and leather boots up past his knees.

He’s much too old for twenty-eight, but he thinks he’s seventeen,
Thinks he’s a stud, but I think he looks more like a queen.
But I think he looks more like a queen.

He’s the Prince of the Punks and he’s finally made it,

Thinks he looks cool but his act is dated.
He talks like a Cockney but it’s all bologna,
He’s really middle class and he’s just a phony.
He acts tough but it’s just a front.
