"Boys In The Band" as written by Carl Barat and Peter Doherty....
You're walking like you never seen the light
You're walking like it every night
But I've never seen you dance,
And I've never heard you sing
So how can it mean a single thing
It's all so rudimentary

You're talking like your handy in a fight
You talk about it every night
But I've never seen your flowers,
In the barrel of a gun
All I've ever seen you do is run
It's all so rudimentary

So tell me baby how does it feel
I know you like the roll of the limousine wheel

And they all get them out for
(They all get them out)
The boys in the band
(Only for the boys in the band)
They scream and they shout for
(Twist and scream and shout)
For the boys in the band
(Only for the boys in the band)

You're walking like you never seen the light
You're walking like it every night
But I've never seen you laugh,
And I've never seen you cry
One of those things that darling you must try
It's all so rudimentary

Now I'm jealous, I'm jealous of my own
I've no homestead but through these hearts I will roam

And they all get them out for
(They all get them out)
The boys in the band
(Only for the boys in the band)
Yes they all roll them out for
(Twist and scream and shout)
The boys in the band
Only for the boys in the band

Well tell me baby how does it feel
I know you like the roll of the limousine wheel

And they all get them out for
(They all get them out)
The boys in the band
(Only for the boys in the band)
They scream and they shout for
(Twist and scream and shout)
For the boys in the band
(Only for the boys in the band)

    General CommentIn The Libertines book 'Bound Together'
    It says something like 'They All Get Them Out For' reffers to people metaphorically rolling out the red carpet and buying them drinks 'cause there in a band.
    Meh..I dont know. Either way. Amazing song.

    General Commentit's all so rudimentary - its all so underdeveloped, thinking you can cling onto some one to be happy. also ''they all get them out'' i should imagine means they all get their tits out...

    General CommentI guess they wrote this about their obsessed groupies, how they worship them and the kind of attention they get for being the boys in the band.

    General CommentWhen they say 'they all get them out' at first I thought they were talking about breasts. But when you look more into it, it could also mean 'hey the boys are in town break out the party favors get them some beers'

    General CommentYes I heard that too, it would make perfect sense if it was bout the QON...it's definitely about tits rather than beer.
