I was crawling around in my head in the haze of a trance
Rico said, "I'ma turn you onto a sound, cool out your head
This is the sound from Camden town"

And then I heard it like a shot through my skull to my brain
I felt my fingertips tingle, and it started to rain
When the walls of my bedroom were trembling around me
This ramshackle voice over attack of a blues beat
Telling me, "He's only looking for fun"
And this was the sound, of the very last gang in town

As heard by my wild young heart
Like directions on a cold, dark night
Saying, "Let it out, let it out, let it out, you're doing all right"
And I heard it in his chain gang soul
It wasn't just the same sad song
Saying, "Let it out, let it out, let it out, you're doing all right"
And I'm doing all right
Are you doing all right?

And I carried these songs as a comfort wherever I'd go
They was there when my summers was high
There when she left me alone
Saying, "The soul is hard to find"

And I never got to tell him, so I just wrote it down
I wrapped a couple chords around it and I let it come out
When the walls of my bedroom were trembling around me
This ramshackle voice over attack of a blues beat
And a girl, on the excitement gang
And this was the sound, of the very last gang in town

As heard by my wild young heart
Like directions on a cold, dark night
Saying, "Let it out, let it out, let it out, you're doing all right"
And I heard it in his chain gang soul
It wasn't just the same sad song
Saying, "Let it out, let it out, let it out, you're doing all right"
And are you doing all right?
Are you doing all right?

As heard by my wild young heart
Like directions on a cold, dark night
Saying, "Let it out, let it out, let it out, you're doing all right"
And I heard it in his chain gang soul
It wasn't just the same sad song
Saying, "Let it out, let it out, let it out, you're doing all right"
And are you doing all right?

And that was the sound
I hear the sound
Do you hear the sound?
I hear the sound
Of the very last gang in town
