Dear hero, imprisoned
With all the new crimes
That you are perfecting

Oh, I can't help quoting you
'Cause everything
That you said rings true

And now in my cell
Well, I followed you
And here's a list of who I slew

Reggie Kray, do you know my name?
Oh, don't say you don't
Please say you do, ohh ohh

I am the last of the famous
International playboys
The last of the famous
International playboys

And in my cell
Well, I loved you
And every man with a job to do

Ronnie Kray, do you know my face?
Oh, don't say you don't
Please say you do, ohh ohh

I am the last of the famous
International playboys
The last of the famous
International playboys

In our lifetime those who kill
The news world
Hands them stardom

And these are the ways
On which I was raised
These are the ways
On which I was raised

I never wanted to kill
I am not naturally evil
Such things I do

Just to make myself
More attractive to you
Have I failed?

Oh, the last of the famous
International playboys
The last of the famous
