  • Walking down the main street
    I see a city's face
    Boys dressed in leather
    Girls dressed in lace
    See the easy riders
    They're roaring down their way
    They need to give full speed ahead

    They've been bunched together
    To keep their crazy life
    They turn on the power
    Get wrecked every night
    Got some kind of feeling
    Looking in his eyes
    I feel the power surge to a head

    London leatherboys
    Nightmare's pleasure, what you've done
    London leatherboys
    All together
    All together, nightmare's pleasure

    After all the roaring
    The sound of silence scares
    Girl of the leader
    Cried in his arms
    Don't you see the danger
    When we are running wild
    Please, stop the games, it's getting late

    London leatherboys
    Nightmare's pleasure, what you've done
    London leatherboys
    All together

    Swearing that he would do, he could not even say
    Boy dressed in leather, boy died in pain
    They're the easy riders, but heroes die too fast
    He was more than the best of the bunch

    Best together
    Lousy leather
    Say what's better
    All together
