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

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

Well, rockabilly music was in the air
We 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

And 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 U.S.A.
Not New York City, not West LA"

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

Old Kings Road
Old Kings Road
I'm on the old Kings Road
