  • Johnny looked back
    You know he never looked back
    The whole world was his stage
    He never acted his age

    A girl we call French Valerie
    Gave a gold plate chain to me
    Asked her who had given it her
    An old flame called Vince Taylor

    I nearly done a Vince Taylor

    Oh, Johnny looked back
    You know he never looked back
    Leather and chains, so damned vain
    Never seen his like again
    Must have left his mark on me
    Even liked by Morrissey

    Johnny looked back
    You know he never looked back

    Leather and chains
    The whole world was his stage
    He never acted his age

    A girl we call French Valerie
    Gave a gold plate chain to me
    Asked her who had given it her
    An old flame called Vince Taylor

    Leather and chains
    Goddamn vain
    We'll never see his like again

    Johnny looked back
    You know he never looked back
    The whole world was his stage
    He never acted his age

    A girl called French Valerie
    Gave a gold plate chain to me
    Asked her who had given it her
    An old flame named Vince Taylor

    I nearly done a Vince Taylor
    I nearly done a Vince Taylor
    I nearly done a Vince Taylor
    I nearly done a Vince Taylor
    I nearly done a Vince Taylor
    I nearly done a Vince Taylor Writer/s: ADAM ANT, MARTIN JAMES BOORER

  • Dale from Dayton, OhioCatchy song about an interesting character, Vince Taylor, who wrote the song "Brand New Cadillac", covered by Rory Storm and the Hurricanes (with Ringo Starr before he joined the Beatles) and The Clash. Many consider Taylor, who spent part of his youth in the USA, as a progenitor of British Punk Rock.
