Well they took me out on the old Kings Road
I didn't know which way to go
There was people all around wearin' funny lookin' clothes
Some boys, some girls, some I don't know

I didn't know which way to go
I'm a new world boy on the old Kings Road

Rockabilly music was in the air
I looked through the door, they said "come over here"
They had socks and shirts and underwear
That I'd seen before, but I don't know where

I didn't know which way to go
I'm a new world boy on the old Kings Road

A Pakistani man said "listen here
Let me fix you up before you go back there
You can't get 'em in the USA
Not in New York City, not in West L.A."

I thought about it, said "I don't know"
I'm a new world boy on the old Kings Road
