Prince Of The Punks  Kinks

[C7]   Reggae [Bb]music [Eb7]didn't seem to [Bb]satisfy his [F7]needs. [Ab]   [C7]
[C7]   He couldn't handle [Eb]modern jazz, 'cause they [Bb(maj7]play it in difficult [F7]keys.
Eb G7 Ab Bb Ab F7 Ab:A
But now he's found a music he can call his own,
[C7]Some people call it [Eb]junk, but he don't [Bb]care, he's found a [C7]home.

instr break: C7 | C7 | Bb | Bb Db F7 |

He's the [F7]Prince [D]of the [C7]Punks and [F]he's final[D7]ly [C]made it, [D]  [C7]
[F7]Thinks he [D]looks [C7]cool [D]but [F]his act [G]is  [C]da[Ab]ted.[F]   [A]
He [Bb]acts working [F]class [G]but [Bb]it's all [G]bo- [F]log[G]na,
[F]He's [F7]really [D]middle [G]class [D]and he's [F]just [D]a   [F]pho[C]ny.
[Ab]He acts tough but it's just a [Eb]front, the Prince of the [C]Punks.

break: | Eb D7 C7-D-C7 | F7 |
keyboard/clean guitar over F7 (p. muted): Bb F | F Bb F F |
then: | Eb | Eb |

[Eb]He's the [F7]Prince of the Punks and he's finally made it,
[Eb]Thinks he looks cool [E]but [G]his [Ab]act is dated.[F]  [Gb]

interlude: | F(7) | F(7) | Eb | Ab G-F7-Eb | F(7) |
| F(7) | Eb Eb+D5 | Eb G7 Ab A |

He [Bb]tried to be gay, but it didn't [D]pay,
Bb F7 A C7 | F7 Ab C7 Ab |
So he bought a motorbike instead.
He [Bb]failed [Eb]at [Bb7]funk, [D]so [Bb]he became [G5]a  [Bb7]punk,
C F7 Ab:A C7 F7 | F7 Ab:A C7 F7 Bb
'Cause he thought he'd make a little more bread.
[C7]|                       [Bbm]       [Eb]        [Ebm]    [Eb]     [Bb]                      [F7]   [Ab]
He's been through all of the changes, from rock opera to Mantovani.
[C7]  Now he wears [Bb]a  [Eb]swastika band and [Bb]leather boots up past [Eb]his [F]kne[F7]es.
Eb G7 Bb G7 F7 Ab:A
[C7]He's much too old for twenty-eight,     but he thinks he's seventeen,
Thinks [Bb]he's a [Eb]stud, but I think [C7]he [Bb]looks more like a [C]queen.[C7]
C Bb C C7 |
But I think he looks more like a queen.

interude: | C7 | Bb | Bb Db F |

He's the [F7]Prince of the [C]Punks and [F]he's finally [C]made it,
[F7]Thinks he looks [C7]cool but [F]his act is [C]dated. [Ab]    [F]  [A]
He [Bb]talks like a [F]Cockney but [Bb]it's all bo[F]logna,
He's [F7]really middle [C]class and he's [F]just a [F]pho[C]ny.
[Ab]He acts tough but it's just a [Eb]front.    [Bb]
